|No, it didn't blow down, it turned launch-able right about 1:00
and flyable for 3-4 hours, until the sea breeze made it's way
to the slopes and shut down the lift. And even then and all the time before
that the winds were pushing from both sides of the range, so we were
getting wind direction readings all over the place, depending on location
and altitudes. There were some converging masses too.
Rob and Ron grabbed the first good one to near 5K, pulled the string and
went to T, with Rob coming back quickly and Ron landing in the wash.
Larry was making it look too easy on his Atozinador just cruising along
above all at 5K.
