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.
