Re: Lost Kingpost Cover on Kagel

Thanks Vrezh. I sent him a text. Thanks again for saving my leading edges from the dust devil that kicked up as the wind switched. Fun day!

Beautiful video, Jonathan, as always.
I enjoyed it.
Is that Bruce in a Swift?
Thanks Vrezh. Yes, that is Bruce and I hitched a ride back on his truck.

SCENE & HERD at the Kagel LZ in the 21st Century (2000-2003)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bS4whXP3MH4

Really fun to watch and listen in stereo!
Wayne gave me this video not long before he passed. I finally got it to post to YouTube with good resolution.
The audio quality is amazing thanks to Wayne's work as a sound pro in the film industry.

Queen's Gambit - Mini Review

If you have Netflix or can borrow someone's account, this was a very compelling drama that is true to the text of the 1983 novel it was based on and well worth watching. We finished all 7 episodes over 2 consecutive evenings and both applauded at the end. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Queen%27s_...

I'm curious how people find out about USFS closures. I couldn't find a link on the USFS website. Thanks.

Gliding Into A Smoke Filtered Sunset - 2020-08-20

https://youtu.be/_sI2teqbtR0 Massive fires all over the state obscure the skies in San Bernardino creating a beautiful light as I coast along late in the day. I also flew earlier when it was turbulent: https://youtu.be/ZPUFzIPn3yU https://photos.imageevent.com/aero92/misc/giant/Devore%20Sunset%202.p...

Merry Condensation All My Friends!

https://youtu.be/8zVI26Vm_uY I originally began a secret anthology of my personal FAR 103.23 breaches in concert with Orian Price less than a year before he tragically died. I have since refined the edit and sound track dozens of times trying to get it just right and remove the non-aesthetic element...

Watch out in the Clouds....
Please don't even be in the clouds locally given the amount of commercial and other powered air traffic.

On another note, I see you signed your marvelous watercolor "WINGNUTZ".
I am impressed. If you have an online gallery I would enjoy seeing more.
Cheers,
Jonathan

Cloud Suck Thursday - 2019.11.21

Hour-long flight yesterday to 500' below cloud base just over 4900'MSL. The lighting and scenery were very pleasing but the cold and turbulence weren't nearly as enjoyable. I kept the edit short and to the point. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/orvDVALVcqY http://photos.imageevent.com/aero92/misc/vlcsnap-20...
