Beautiful pictures, guys! That foamie Dieter is holding is g-h-e-t-t-o! No wonder he had such a low opinion of them for so long, if that's what he's got to judge them by

I hope to someday fly with you guys up there, just please promise not to let anyone shoot my car this time

You might need to adjust your camera. At least on my computer, it's making everything look like it's covered in green. The world is beige. Isn't it?

Sure looks like fun!

Hey, the taxman has knocketh, and I'm selling everything. --- It's Budweiser, Folgers and foam for me from now on...

(I'm kidding... : )

This foamie belongs to a buddy who used to fly gas. He's getting real interested in slope, and he did quite well yesterday. Upon my suggestion, he's buying a Arthobby "Timon-C" 2-meter; this way he doesn't yet need a new radio also...

I'm guessing Pat's new ship is a Sig Samurai - based on the shape of the tailfeathers, the look of the canopy, and the fact I can't see any control surfaces. :-)

2000' high with a vertical cliff at the top. Whoo! I haven't flown it. Yet... It's a hike to the top. Dry weather required. I'm thinking I need to wait for warmer weather, take a sleeping bag, and spend a couple days up there.

Woah! Sounds like fun. Also sounds a little bit like here. My favorite Raven Ridge apparently makes a great backstop for when you're out shooting at the old appliances you've dumped in the desert.

But what's the story?
