I especially like the music. A choir of strings is the second most beautiful sound in the world.

found SNAKE

I was going out my trailer door headed to the outhouse. I saw the tail of a snake going under the side of the glider storage. It had rattles on it! My point is that we should be vigilant when opening up the doors.

BS2015 task 4

Day 4 task 4 I told you how my driver was a now show. It has added a lot of stress scrounging for a retrieve every day. The pilots here have been very helpful and every day someone different has been able to squeeze me in despite a full truck. Hang gliding is NOT a cut throat competition. Today wind...

BS2015 Task2

Monday did not go well but, looking at the result, it didn’t go well for most. My driver didn’t show again after promising she would, I bumbed a ride mainly because Zippy pleaded my case. I am getting ahead of the story. It rained hard the night before. In the morning it was still overcast. The ...

BS2015 Task 3

Day 3 Task 3 It started out bad but ended pretty well. Woke up to find the motel was without water. No Breakfast no brushing teeth, no washing face, no toilet. A water main broke up the street and every place north of the freeway was without water. I skipped breakfast because I wanted to set up my g...

BS2015 Task 1

Day 1 task 1 Started out badly. My driver didn’t show and calling her produced an error message “the number you have called is unavailable�. Two of my pilots went to another truck and Bruce Barmakian agreed to take me for just one day. What a scramble. My launch position was 20th based on my U...

BS2015 TD

Transition day 20 hours driving to Big Spring. With an early start I did 14 hours the first day stopping in Las Cruses, NM overnight. Not as hard as I expected. Credit goes to Redbull. It keeps me alert without making me stop to pee. Fourteen hours is 3 cans. Cruise control keeps me from going too f...

Thanks for the photos DQ and thanks for not publishing my bad one. Another thing that added to the great day was Dayna's superlative cornbread and chili! Also Maria and Pedro's visit. She is a sweetheart.

I want to find out how you got the person's name next to the icon. Have made a couple of unsuccessful tries. I must scroll over their stats line at the bottom of the animation to see who is who.

update: The scorer forgot to give Greg his hero points. The scorer was notified by another participant and she said she would correct the oversight. That should move his finish up several positions.

Results are in. I did not get enough pints to improve my lot. I finished 31 out of 39 pilots. Greg Kendall finished 23, a little more than 2 points behind 22. Kraig Coomber did win. MOYES GLIDERS TOOK THE FIRST 5 PLACES. Mike Bilyk from Crestline finished 3rd and ahead of Jonny Durand, who was forth...
