I've got a question...

I've seen a few posts on here about flying up in the San Elijo area.

Well today, I finally went up to the top of "Double Peak Rd." and threw my Nano Floh off to see what would happen.

I went all the way up the road past the original gate. Past the big green water tower to the larger parking lot just below the picnic area. Just past the caretakers quarters.

The wind seeme a little out south but mostly from the west. I threw out and got bumped a bunch over the road.

Has anyone else had recent experience flying up there? Is it ever any good and if so, what are people's experiences with different wind directions?

Jim
Always looking for that perfect flying site...

Here's some video from my last day of flying in San Diego. Took this today at Blossom. Had my moth cruisin around at the lip down by the lower flagpole. Lots of fun and real close in flying. Weasel video is still uploading to vimeo, will post that when it's available.

Good Luck Alex at Cal Poly,

...plenty of good sloping in Pismo and inland lift around SLO town.

My son is up there, as well.

Thanks guys. I will definitely be on the groups while I'm there. Wish the slopers in SLO had more of a presence on the forums. There's a yahoo group called the Pismo Beach Soaring Society but the message board on that is real funky and hard to figure out who's responding to what. Kinda odd.

Here's that weasel video I forgot to post the other day.
