This is the day that Greg Kendall and I flew opposite sides of the San Gabriel Mountains and Mario flew from Crestline to Cucmonga Peak and back. Collectively, we circled most of the mountain range. My video was shot on 2 cameras and gives an idea of what it's like to fly the full face of the range along the basin side. I left Ontario Peak (Frankish Peak) too low and got flushed, eventually bailing out in Glen Helen Regional Park where I got a ride the rest of the way from an interesting character in a pickup truck with the initiation switch ripped out and a screwdriver used for a key. At least we didn't get stopped. It would have been fun explaining to law enforcement what I was doing with a hang glider hastily lasted down to the roof of this wreck. Mario drive me and Greg back to the LZ. Fun day.
