Max,
thanks for the report. It's nice to know about my fellow pilots' flights,
specially when I can't make it.

BTW, your singing is phenomenal, you might wanna join the band
with Phil and Larry :D

November 4 is what I remember the most. In fact, I checked right now, Saturday, February 16, 11:00 PM, before I wrote this, and it's doing the same thing. I check for tomorrow, it starts out just fine, from 11:00 AM, and then, as I click "next", it goes to the next hour, as it is supposed to. But af...

I put together some short video clips of the event and used some photos also taken by our friends to make this short video.

Hi Alan, First, I thank you for making this wonderful tool available for us. I contacted you couple of months ago about issues we were having with RASP, and was explained, that it was a temporary problem, and was going to go away as soon as the migration to a new hardware was over. I wonder if you a...

Monday report

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 readin...

Wednesday, good day

Somewhat unusual turnout for a winter midweek, lost the count, but probably about 10 happy souls... Cutter and Emily got above 5K, others around 4.5, a little harder to get up if you got low, but nice and a little elusive thermals to mid 4s otherwise... Beautiful, lovely day. Good landings too. Carp...

Tuesday, January 22 was a blast!

It was much better than expected (and looked). There were 4 of us, Big Mike, Jonathan, Darryl and I. The sky started to turn white/grey too soon with high clouds floating in. About 1PM, ready to launch, it looked like the best we could hope was an extended sledder. I launched, carefully timing the c...

You got it wrong. I call him Babalucci. The way it started, we used to joke around, Matso Bro calling everyone "bubba", and me-twisting anything he would try to say to me into some fake, italian sounding nonsense :D So once he said something, and of course, there was his signature "bubba" involved s...

Friday (December 28) Report

This morning the forecasts were more consistent, so there was no doubt, it was going to be a good winter day. About 15 pilots went up in 3 trucks. O, BTW, the setup area is nice and flat (I hadn't seen it after grading). It was sunny, but cold on the top. Around 1:00 we started to launch into a nice...

Just kidding :D My 6030 started doing this a while ago. In flight it would work fine, but after landing it would produce a wacked out "flight analysis". As advised by Steve, I updated the software, keep the memory clean and switched from 2 sec scan rate to 5 sec. That seemingly helped, but for a tim...

Tuesday

3 trucks went up, 10+(happy) pilots. Fred with his "superwomen"/"wonder women" tandem. Seriously, she came in a "wonder women" costume and flew like that. I flew over, when they took off, and that was quite a scene- her cape in the airflow... We started to launch around 12:30, and the day gradually ...
