I'm shooting for Sunday this week if I can break away for mothers day.

I went out this am. Dead calm for about 1/2 hour. Wind was just picking up when I left at 8:15. Still got 3 very nice flights in, first 2 as the only person there and zero wind.
Just so you know,,, the sun comes up around 0545.

Lately I've been waking up later and later. Never seem to get the honey do list done when the kids are up so I really should be getting up earlier.

I'm hoping I can break out really early on Sunday (5:45 you say???) and get some flights in. Might be better very few people are there.

Trying to work thru my landings still and my twitchy thumbs. My T-28 has suffered because of it. One more time and I'll have to redo the front wheel area.

Ya know it's your fault. Every-time I land I hear "take the landing."

LOL, you did just fine when leaning. At first, any landing is a good landing.
What you need to do is show up at 5:30 on Saturday and shoot takeoff's and landing's; a whole battery worth. Just do small circles as there is no need to waste electrons flying huge circles. I did that this am on my first 2 flights. It works GREAT if you are the only person there as you don't have to call your intentions. Well, you can but the owls don't give a hoot. (pun intended)

Went out Wednesday, it was windy when I got there, but by 10 A.M. it was nice.
Wild Bill and I put in a few nice flights, keeping with club rules, Bill and I spotted for each other.

I hate that you guys can go out there during the week. I need to bring a plane with me to work everyday just in case I want to stop out on my way home. Sneak in a flight before it gets dark.

10 MPH winds in the morning. I'll bet somebody there will be a nice cross wind.
