So, whilst Bakkie is on his road trip...
Sean was at work...
We played!

The wind was pretty light, but it was a relaxing afternoon at Maitlands.
Daron flew his Panther
Mike had his MiG up, and Ashly fooled around!
Markus flew his.... whatever that thing was, and generally had fun!
We just missed Jim "the flying beagle", but he phoned to say he was watching Stu Davidson doing his thing in a full scale Edge right above Maitlands!

So now we wait for the strong winds predicted for Sunday!

Very!
He's like a tornado!
You have to keep him channeled to burn off some some of the energy!
So...
We sent him on a solo road trip!
Some quiet meditation and soul searching may do the trick!

Nice rocks you have there Bakkie!
They may be appealing to the eye...
BUT
Planes don't like them!
