I'm in China right now on business, but I return on Nov 2nd and I am itching to get back to PB on the weekend of Nov 3-4.

Weather permitting, of course.

Can't wait

This weekend would have been spectacular. I almost loaded up the car to head down there (thinking it re-opens Oct 1) and then checked here and said Crap, I have to wait a bit longer

Hoody, sorry I got there too late for the 20's. It was nice at 3 for the Ninja's, but then it tapered off a bit more later in the afternoon. Probably 8-10 by 5 when I left.
Saturday was looking a little light but now it's looking better.
Hopefully see someone up at PB on Saturday.

Nice afternoon @ PB

So nice I was flyin' most ALL the time instead of takin' pichers...
We had steady 10-18 all day, but mostly around 12 or so, with a high laminar overcast that kept any thermal action from disrupting the flow.
I flew my trusty Hypnosis as well as my new favorite Pace DSE

Around 3 or so, it got real light but straight in from the south for som nice relaxing close-in passes. I remembered the camera and shot a few keepers...

Man, what a great day at PB w/ Doug, Tim, Pat, and Tom. Of the six or so hours we were there I think I put my tx down once to have lunch and flew the rest of the time. Wx was not too cold, there was no sheep sh#%, and we had lots of laughs and did lots of flying. Doesn't get any better than that. Thanks for the pics WD - good to have you back on the weekend trips again!
