Bluff Cove Stinks!

Not technically at Bluff, but right down the street. Momma skunk and a whole surfeit of kits (yes, I looked that up) were walking across the street and didn't seem too awful concerned about 4,000 pounds of truck headed their way. Funny how they stay clustered around mom - almost looked like one wide animal. And there's not much cuter than a baby skunk!

It was a fun Sunday afternoon at Bluff. Winds were a little off and lift wasn't the greatest, but for a few hours there was at least one airplane in the air at all times. The 60"ers ripped it up, PSS stuff "flew" and Jeff Charlot did some 500' pumps with his Siren (thanks to an AXI and TP2100 pack).

A couple little war wounds here and there, but everything made it back to the hangar that evening.

And here I was thinking, "Man, I had a Great time at Bluff!!" Those kits are too cute, but I've hit one before and the cuteness fades fast!

That was a killer day at Bluff, thanks to the TNBC for the invite and warm welcome, it was great to fly a new site, but it's always the crowd that makes the event.

Looking forward to next time!

Jeff

It was good to see you all come walking down the path. Turned out to be a great day. Here are a few of my pics.

Did you look up surfeit or kits?

- I have a whole surfeit of kits in my basement, waiting to be built.

Easy fix, my man:

Mix 1 Qt 3% hydrogen peroxide with 1/4 cup baking soda and 1 tsp. liquid soap. Double the amounts for a LARGE dog. Pour the solution onto the dog and work it into the fur. Let soak for 5-10 minutes and rinse.

Works excellent!

Being skunk-like in their general coloration, my dogs are welcomed into the surfeit, just like any other kit.

Fortunately there aren't a lot of skunks in my neighborhood. If there were, I'd have some stinky(er) dogs! The male once rolled in a dead seal on day one of a three day camping trip. That was special.

I once brought my mother-in-law's dog on a fishing trip...who promptly rolled in a dead, rotting salmon. That smell just doesn't go away!

Tell the kids 'hi' for me.

I had a girlfriend who's lab decided it would be fun to roll in dead salmon while we were out at the Wall windsurfing. Love that smell, dead fish and wet dog. Then when we stopped in Biggs to get gas, the dog leans up between the seats and yacks up the rest of the fish that she had been rolling around in. Now the car really smells good and it's 90 degrees out to boot. Best three things about the story, not my dog, not my car and not my gf for much longer after that.

C'mon Reed, cargo shorts are great. I can put my keys and sunglasses in the same pocket to ensure proper scratching of the lenses. I can carry extra (also discharged) battery packs and improperly closed bottles of C/A. And I can stuff wads of change in them, and then wash my shorts. All-in-all, a fantastic invention and now that I have photographic evidence, a real fashion statement.

I'm just jealous - gotta have those sweet, hairless boy-legs to wear them things.
