Putting cg further forward helped considerably the high speed dives

And wouldn't you know it the video recorder stopped working so no video

Kerwin.......enough with the Heinz 57 sauce!!!!! Dude, you're killing me!!!

Poor Lance......stripped of all his titles......too bad they can't take the millions in endorsement money he has made over the years of his deception! Oh, well that's the American way......whatever it takes to make a buck!.....Well, for a good many well-to-do Americans anyway! The rest of us pay the price.

Well, every set is lofted and my job is done!!!! I had to heft my heavy butt up the many rungs on the ladder up to the fly loft, but it was well worth it........the head rigger showed me the ropes (get it? ) and I learned a lot.....what fun!

Maybe tonight I can start building the Tiger Moth! Oh, I forgot to ask Kerwin if I can use his Foam Tac! Kerwin.....can you wait until the three bottles I ordered from West MI PF to come in and I"ll send you a full bottle??? Otherwise I'll send it out on Monday if you need it right away! (Put him on the spot in a public forum.....as payback for the Heinz 57 remark)

umm...I'm no fan of cycling, but I've paid attention to this story. This organization is a hack. Can you tell me what lance took and when he took it? they can't seem to. Their whole basis is that he was so good he must have been cheating. This dude has dedicated his life to this "livestrong" thing that has raised $500 million for cancer research. It would seem that this individual has been a benefit to society and for some reason somebody has a bone to pick with him. Not to mention this group making the accusations does not have any rights on the Tour de France and lance hasnt actualy been stripped of his medals yet. At least thats the last I heard friday mid-day

From the bit I have read, that USADA is just another tax-payer funded fiasco. I don't know why a single tax-payer dollar is used in the so-called regulation of professional sports.

You could ask that about half of the things the governement is spending our money on, this being a perfect example.

I copied this post over from here

I spent the morning out at the club field and had a great time being around the other members. Even got some vids to post



My buddy Brigg had knee surgery yesterday so I was really surprised when he said he wanted to come out. He had to sit the whole time and use a walker. He was also a little impaired on his percoset. When asked how he was doing he always replied, "me an my friend percoset are doing just fine." Brigg was the one filming while I flew and you can see his drunken reflexes and shaky hands but I was really glad to have him there. He is always such a huge support to everyone. There is also some nice interaction with him talking to my wife on the phone. I suppose I maybe stayed out at the field a little longer than she was expecting... oops
Here are some vids of some of the other club members flying.

Adam flying his Aeroworks DLE 55 powered Extra (14 min 36 sec)


Dennis Church and his 38% Extra 300L (12 min 53 sec)


Here is the video of me flying my FB slick. I'm sorry for the lack of editing... I agree that it is hard to watch at times but there are some fun gems in there... I need to get a better camera

I hope everyone else is having a great weekend of flying!

Maybe TYPING about flying makes us fat.

Typing increases hand-eye coordination so it makes us fly better.
