Haha well let's keep the combat to Blossom... I'm not so sure about recovering a wing at Lake Murray... there's a lot of brush down there.

I wouldn't worry about coming off as a stalker... haha we're a very friendly community. Slope soarers are generally akin to surfers... anyone is welcome and we all share something in common so it's quite easy to get along.

Lol yeah that would be bad news... just wait til you get back into the swing of things. You'll have at least 4 or 5 airplanes flying in no time.

I just wish I had my own 4WD vehicle to carry all 5 of my planes up the hill... soon I'm going to have 6 or even 7... yikes! I've got an ASW-28 that is on the bench right now ready to be finished and another 24" mini speed wing on the way for the light wind days.

And after all of that I have a Telos kit that will need to be built! Crazy.

google maps is not working for me. Look at sky ranch By Lennar and just go all the way to the top and bang there you go W-NW wind site.

Ohh I know what slope you're talking about. I remember Kevin and I tried to get up there at one point a loong time ago but it was gated off so we couldn't get to the ideal spot. You'll have to show me how to get up there sometime.

just drive up the paved street, park on the paved street on top off the hill. Walk 25ft to the edge and toss the plane! Exit the 68 on prospect. Right, Left , Follow the Sky Ranch For Sale signs.

Oh I think we tried to go up the hill from a different way. Interesting. I'll have to give that a shot sometime.

Gratz on ERAU Alex. I really hope you can work it out and if not, good luck where ever you end up going.

You guys are killing me with all your flying. I'm way past due but it's as close as we get to building season and I've been trying to keep up. One of these days I'll see those flags flapping the right way when I have time and enough sunlight

Speaking of "building season", I FINALLY finished the Moth I've been working on since October, or was it September? Hoping to test glide and maiden soon (some west wind would be nice).
