Chris and I flew Big Mesa today and there are some real improvements. First off is a new sign right at the gate and visible from the road, you cant miss it any more. I guess the area is really called the Eagle Rock Shelter. They also regraded the entire road and put down road base. Check out the once sketchy knife edge road out to Spinal Tap. You could get a semi out their now, or a bug!

Maybe we can all get our ships into a mass gaggle of rising sailplanes in a big thermal like we did a couple years ago in the morning. That's the sort of thing that would stoke Mike to no end. Great job on the name change!

I am putting this on my calendar as it has been too long since I got in some killer combat. My condolences to all of Mike's friends and family. He will be missed.

Very saddened to hear of Mike's passing. He was a great contributor here and I had many communications with him over the years. Rest in peace, Mike.

Thanks for the kind words Dom. He was a real badass and was addicted to being in the air, you would have dug him for sure. He taught me to carbon sock fuses and was responsible for my "Old Hickory" JW with the carbon socked axe handle. A great builder no doubt.
