Where to fly in SoCal Sunday (today)

I just drove from Wyoming to Southern California, ostensibly to do some dynamic soaring, but it looks like the wind might not cooperate today. I brought along a Precious and would love some help with setup, etc. I'm in Barstow right now, but a bit of driving is no problem. Is anybody in SoCal flying today who wouldn't mind a pest asking questions?

Hmmm--you're really close to Cajon Pass--I'd head there and check the wind/weather.
Look at the ISR website for directions--then check with the Parker crowd for DSing.
It's good in all directions so that's also a likely spot not too far from you.
FYI

Thanks, Tim. I guess I should clarify that I'd be looking for help setting up the Precious for a winch launch. It slopes just fine already.

Sorry dude, too late of notice. I would love to give you a hand, but I burned all of my flying for the week yesterday. The entire F3b crowd was flying hand launch all day yesterday in Encinitas.

No worries, Dave. I knew it was a long shot. Parker ended up working OK this afternoon.
