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.

Whale

I drove up the road to Whale today to check on the snow situation near the top. Looks like we won't be flying there for another month. There's still a 4 ft deep drift covering about 20 yards of the road. Too bad because Sunday looks like it could be a good day there. There are a couple other ways to...

Re: Salida Mine

We hiked up again today and Ann got a longer flight this time. On the walk down the antenna unscrewed from my radio and dropped off. I walked all the way back to launch and didn't find it. So keep your eyes open for it. Older Larsen BNC type, about 10 inches long.
