Sunday was a great day. Plenty of lift, pleasant company, more paragliders than I could shake a stick at...

On Saturday I was out there flying alone, minding my own business, when a paraglider came swooping by..

"Tonyyyy....."

I thought, I dont know anybody with a paraglider.."Who ARE you?"

"Its Harry SSSSssss" Insert doppler shift here.

He stuck a very neat landing off to the left and hung around for a bit. I got a great closeup view of him launching. A flier from Santa Clara got a good pic of him leaving, so maybe he'll post it here.

Reed- I forgot to offer you some money to get this thing to its next destination. Maybe next weekend we can meet up.

Nice meeting you Bill- You certainly have an understanding wife there. She spent at LEAST 45 minutes out there without ever once uttering the phrase "I'm cold" or "Are you done yet?". And your Jart was seriously nicely built. Great work there.

All in all are really pleasant was to spend the weekend.

Any clue if the DOM will ever make it to me in Texas? It seems to be moving a little slower these days.

Steve -

Unfortunately, the map only has the pics that were posted to the many various WST threads - I checked - no photos from NZ (and we can't put video on the map).

If you know of anyone w/ pics, I need original photo files emailed to me (has exif data), also the place (coordinates are great, or a google kmz, otherwise I'll look for it), and fliers. Can be emailed to ajroahkni@netscape.net
