Should be a nice NE wind on the Thursday, so you will still get to fly when you arrive

Your excited, I'm leaving 2 kids (5 and 2) at home with their mum while I spend a week flying gliders in another country. I can't believe it's happening.

Alex have you taken next week off work?

I did a test pack of the box this arvo and all fits really well. I thought I scored with a suitcase with wheels for five bucks from the opp shop. they were great when the box was empty but with all the weight the coreflute sagged! I'll have to put a propper frame in there tomorrow.
