It looks like I might be bringing some crappy weather with me next weekend. If it's too crappy to fly, what else is there to do? Is there a music scene in ABQ? Gun ranges, paintball, zoos, museums?

There is a fabulous zoo, a very nice aquarium, and a botanical park all close to each other, as well as a list of great museums.

I would highly recommend the Natural History Museum, as well as the Atomic Museum, in addition to the zoo and the aquarium.

Can't go wrong with any of those!

Me and Matt had a unbelievable day flyin , it was pry 37deg when we started at 10 and lift was abundant ,really good lift.
We was flyin auld and it was a beautiful thing with Matt's new cx2 and my cx3 sharing lift and generally tearin up the sky
After a break for lunch we went back for more and just had a blast!
Conditions today were so good and we just tore it up
Can't wait to do it tomorrow

I went out at the White Sands Missile Range, about 4:00. There was soft but very choppy lift, and 2-minute+ flights were doable, repeatably.

But man-oh-man, as the sun went down behind the Organ Pipes, did it get cold!

Yours, Greg
