Question
Recommendations for SoCal/LA area DSing Oct. 27-29

Gang,

I've got a business trip in LA next week and am bringing a couple of planes in case I can break away for some time on the hill.

Any and all recommendations in the area between Bakersfield, Santa Barbara and Riverside would be appreciated.

And yes, I'm going to Weldon if the wind looks good. I've got a hot little D40 that needs a good maiden!

Post here or call/text: 415-378-3613 with last minute updates on flying conditions on the day of.

Thanks,

-Matt
