2017-08-27 Sunday at Lookout

Great lapse this past Sunday, though too lumpy for me to get many of the shots I wanted. Here are a few: Benzie and Arnaud https://photos.smugmug.com/Sports/2017Paragliding/2017-08-Paragliding/i-Rs54cfK/0/caf9d63f/X2/20170827-_IGP0763-X2.jpg Benzie https://photos.smugmug.com/Sports/2017Paragliding/2...

October 2015 - Photos from Lookout (so far)

Lasts two weeks have provided some good photo opportunities. I just started taking the DSLR again... forgot how difficult that can be to manage at times.

Re: April's meeting

I'm one of the pilots who was around and involved in all the history that has been recounted here. In fact, I was at the Swift site the day Granger discovered it. I can provide more details, more examples and history, and my own perspective and reaction, but I think much of the key information has b...

Re: Layne Self, Long Time Lookout PG Pilot, Passed Away

I just want to echo everything written so far, especially what Jobin wrote. Benzie, thanks for finding those photos; I was just going to do the same thing. Layne was one of my mentors and very helpful to me at Lookout. I always enjoyed seeing him and appreciated his advice. He was kind to me after e...

Re: Remembering Meg VanSciver

Thank you, Benzie - I've been struggling with what to do, and have settled on a dinner at my place to allow us to be together and share. So, along those lines, one more item to add the "What to Bring" list: Please bring a story. Please feel encouraged, but not required, to bring a story, r...

Wolcott, Saturday 10-26

Meg's wing brought me luck, and I had a nice soaring flight at Wolcott yesterday with Martin, Dave Champaign, and Godfrey (theboywhoflies). We lucked into the only decent cycle of the day (north and sinky otherwise) and got up. Martin got the best of it, reaching 13.9K. Some of the hangies got decen...
