Give me a holler if you want to check out Torrey Pines. I can usually drop by there after work.

You going to the potluck/swap meet at Fermin? Take something to fly. The gang'll help you with landing info. Foam usually flies first while the lift builds.

Ya, am going to go, thinking of bringing the ocelot and a foamie.

Thanks for the offer, I will gladly accept it
I will already try to fly sunday afternoon, but during the week after work would be a pleasure...
To facilitate "hollering", you could pm me your cell phone number and I give you a ring, say... monday ?

See you soon

Chris

Where are you guys usually flying ? It would be nice to meet some of you locals for some nice slope soaring...

Best regards and see you (hopefully) very soon!!!

Hey Chris,

It sounds like you'll be in the middle of Qualcomm City with the Karl Strauss directly across the street

If you're not going to be here through 8/29 but want to fly Dave's Beach during the week, send me a PM. You could also fly Lopez Canyon since it's right across from Qualcomm Bldg WT.

Lopez is just down the street from me. Good in 290-310 wind though. Nice LZ right now.

It'd be great to meet you too Chris. I should be available Sunday after 2:30-ish. I'll PM you my cell & feel free to give a call when you're in town.

da bump

the wind picked up pretty good around 4pm due south at about 15 with some gusts up to 20. I was up there and flew and back down at the car in just over an hour...responsibilities and priorities at home dontcha know.

I'll post a vid when its done uploading, oops its 11min long and youtube nolikey, have to cut some off or break it up.

sect 1 of ocelot at bump (7 min 54 sec)


sect 2 of ocelot (3 min 48 sec)


sect 3 of ocelot (2 min 28 sec)


ps a hawk came and followed me for a bit and I hovered with it for a while a couple of times. The 2nd time I sneaked up on it and then flew right by, if it could of jumped from suprise I think it would've.

Hello all!!! I'm back

Or rather my Radio is back - got it yesterday, and I have one of my planes all programed in. I'm thinking about going down to Blossom at about 3 or so today to test it,... looks like the wind will be pretty good,.. and my friend will loan me his truck to get up there.

Anyone want to join me?

Was about a hundred degrees on the dot today at blossom, but the wind made up for it. We had some INSANE flying right around 2 or 3 in the afternoon and then it died down quite a bit but I had a chance to wring out my mach dart quite nicely.

Other than that, there was quite a bit of hilarious jacka**ery going on with alulas and weasels aplenty. Everyone had a very fun time.
