Re: September Crawfords Trip

Wednesday is looking blown out and SW. Thurs looking strong but flyable. Friday maybe but I was going to come back that day. I think I will bail out as it's a long way for one flight. Or maybe Thursday, Friday, Saturday?

Re: Crawfords 7/14-7/17

I drove out Sunday and got there in time for a 6 PM launch. Got off at 6 only to find my glider had a left turn that had gotten worse. That turn wore me out so I landed after an hour. Visited Keith and Jody Browning in Randolph. They have a bed and breakfast in town. They're now on AirBnB.

Ann Dunlap, heading out to the LZ for the last time.

Most of you probably know by now that Ann was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer earlier this year. She went to a treatment facility in Mexico for 4 weeks, returning in March. I have been visiting regularly. I saw her today. She has taken a dramatic turn for the worse and is terminal and near the e...

Re: HG Villa Thur-Sun?

Villa delivered another late day glass off yesterday. Wind in the LZ was a consistent SSW swinging around to the NW in the last 30 seconds of my approach, making it a bit exciting but the landing was ok. Monday and Tuesday are looking much lighter.

Re: Flying this Weekend

I launched and beamed up to 15,500. Took another to 15,900 but had to bail from that as it was drifting too fast over the back. Was seeing climbs of 1100 fpm. Out over the valley the lift was weaker but the sink was strong. I blundered into 1400 fpm down and was on the ground from 13K in 5 minutes. ...
