Re: July 4 epilogue -- more than you want to know

It was an interesting and fun trip. Wed. July 1: Greg A., Steve M and wife Pat, Sujata, Arthur and Lisa all head north and rendezvous in Bishop for a possible late flight at Flynn's. It's blowing hard south though and on launch we decide that 25 cross from the south will not be fun and scratch the i...

Re: July 4

I'm in. I have room for Tony's glider and others, for that matter. I've been looking into camping sites and wrote to the Lakeview fairgrounds for some info. Here is the reply: Yes it's open...and I don't think you'll have a problem with a non hookup space. Dry camping is $5 night and our restrooms/s...

So were the conditions as expected, better or worse? Probably not better or Steve would be talking about it.

Re: Corona flying

I guess I'd say the same. Won't be hiking up, I don't think, but if I could get my stepson here to drive me one of these days I would fly. A friend is a nurse at the VA and is positive and sick, but they make her come in to work anyway as long as she can. Hospitals seem to be a last resort at this p...

I had a sled ride last Saturday. How's that for discussion?
Good actually. A sled ride for you counts as news. 13+ minutes for me. It was worth coming out just to watch Dennis with his PG outlast Joe G.

Re: TFR is in effect from 10/11/2019 to 12/11/2019 west of Kagel mountain

The TFR region has been reduced and now allows launches from Kagel. The eastern edge now includes the 1500. A map is available here:

Yeah, we got the bad news from Andrea. Don't act like you committed a crime, shit happens ...on a glider, on the water or on a motorcycle. Come on out once you are mobile and we all wish you the best luck with your surgery.

Re: Flyng the Owens in October

I think I would be in for the first weekend of October and maybe the third as a second choice but it looks like Jim D cannot make that one. Also, I don't think it is necessary to have oxygen to fly there, especially if you are not familiar with the place because you'll have enough to worry about. It...

Re: Yosemite

So if it still looks like we can fly next year, I'm going to give a shot at getting the group campsite there for a weekend in July. Maybe the weekend of 18-19 near the new moon. The first day (and only day, actually) to do that is March 15. I think if people could rely on having a campsite no matter...

Re: Yosemite

Yeah, I thought the trip went great. Perfect weather and no fires. For myself, I enjoyed getting a few extra days up there to relax, hike a little and bicycle around the Valley. We had less trouble than expected getting campsites, probably due to the lack of water there. Made it quieter too with few...

Re: Yosemite

River is low but floatable. No more boat rentals after Thursday though. Get a cheap one at Walmart or Big 5.

Re: Yosemite

Nevermind. It is the Mt. Raymond Rd. The snow area shows up on the maps.

Mike, I will try to get spots for you and Arthur for Thursday night, if I can.
