Flew some nice front side today at Kepps. Maybe 25mph with "good enough" wind direction. Sure is pretty this time of year!

I'll bet it was pretty good up there! Anyone free to go Monday? I know it won't be as good as today was, or Sunday will be, but I'm free then.

if the direction is a little too S for the DS hill the cliffs at the crossing are usually booming. that le-fish would be a blast over there!

Duuuuuude! I haven't seen you forever! I sure want to get out more this year. I only flew twice last year, once by myself and once with cityevader when he passed through.

The cliff does make great lift. I've gotten some great pumps there with my Guppy. Just beware of the rotor. Landing seems easiest lined up with the depression to the left; the place where you can get down below the cliff. The rotor usually isn't so bad there, but there is sage brush. The smooth area without sagebrush that looks like a good LZ is often not so good.

Outa town, or I'd do it. Don't let the rain get you.

I'll be at driving down late Thursday. I'll be a POTM near dawn. Yes, Pete, I still don't fly Sundays. It's not just family, it's church, too. I don't like to miss on purpose. I'll see you guys Fri., Sat., and Mon. Will you be around at all Friday, Marty? It's been a long time since I've seen you. I haven't flown at all this year and only two times last year. I'm thinking the chances of re-kitting my planes is higher than normal this year!

No SU for me. Almost. (I've a brother with kids in Porvo now. But he decided to come in the spring instead.)

I've been doing my flying this year in the desert west of Dubois, ID.

Have fun though.
