New landing approach


We moved some rocks out'a the way on the frontside so we'd have some headwind for our approach and touchdown... there are still a few left to be moved.

Here's a frame grab of the "landing area" from some soon to come video from the recent record setting day at Carrizo Gorge.

Anyone thinking about Carrizo this weekend? I'm not sure if I have the balls but I bet it's going to be a smoker. Forcast for Saturday afternoon looks good.

You know I'VE been eyeballing it ... Saturday looks strong, rainy and southy. Sunday looks cold and snowy with great westerly direction and velocity.

I wish I had something to fly there.

Better late than never... here's video from April 7 last year at Carrizo Gorge.

Carrizo Gorge Record Day (8 min 6 sec)


It was cranking out there this weekend with the storm, but it was also snowing so I stayed at the beach.

That does look good... nice wind, warm air, low sky cover.

I wish I was going to be in town
