Sentinal Gap

Hey Ryan, Can you send us the link of your JW DSing at Sentinal Gap? We did a bit of exploring of the area. Not sure where you were flying when you were up there.

Sentinal Gap

Ryan sent me the link to his first DS session on Sentinal gap with his JW. We were at the right spot! Should be great for a heavy Moldie.

Watch out for all that petrified wood on landing.

Thanks Keith. Yes I know it's foam, yes I know I fly like a dork and yes I know I'm going so slow that it can barely be termed DS. It was my first truly successful attempt at DS so Iím pretty stoked regardless. From looking at the pics I think you guys were a bit to the right. I'll check my GPS and see if I recorded the track as there are plenty of wrong turns one can make on the way up there.

Edit >>> Yes watch for petrified wood and SCORPIONS!!!!!

Did Just Fine

Looks like you had a blast. A foamy would be a good thing for this site. YOUR GPS coordinates would be appreciated... Thanks for the Vid !
