Re: Over the Back

Great to hear Greg.

You certainly earned every mile of it as few locals are willing to go over the back without more altitude than that.
Victorville to Baker was a bit of a "milk run" in the 80's, but getting there from Kagel is truly an accomplishment, even on better days.

Re: Bates Beach

That’s a heck of a way to inspire people to step up to the plate to try to save a site.
People said the same thing about getting Dockweiler Beach back as well as saving our Sylmar landing area and our Towers Launch Site.

I know that’s not how you meant it.

Re: Help Bezos $ come to SHGA!

:cry: Pay close attention to Frederick's instructions not to do your shopping at amazon.com, but smile.amazon.com instead. We have been making that mistake for quite some time and only just now learned that none of our purchase resulted in credit to the club.

Very good day Tuesday (tomorrow)

Looks like a very good chance for a 7500 ft. Day tomorrow. If you don’t have to work consider flying Kagel.
Watch out for the traffic in Victor Airway 459. Best to stay below 6000 in this area.

This is one of the best flying vacations on the planet, if you like great thermal soaring every day, with climbs to over 10,000 ft., large landing areas, xc flights and training and almost everything done for you. Rudy Gotes runs a first-class operation and if you're a 30 or 40 hr pilot wishing to a...

The float is Rome Dodson's pickup truck with a western town mu...

New Wild Things insulated flight suit from Kris Greblo

I'm posting this for Kris. It is a warm and expensive, one-piece, thinsulate, flight suit that's perfect for winter flying. It's very well made and cost over $300.00 new. Never worn and sized for someone about 6' and 200 lbs; 36" shoulder to crotch. Make Kris an offer if you like it.

Emergency LZ now cleared

Somehow the emergency lz (near the base of the Pacoima Dam) has been graded and is now much safer to land on if needed. Imagine that!
The road to launch has been graded as well.

I’ve got to thank Josh and Andy over at windsports for sending me down to run another flying trip to Valle de bravo. We were a fun group of 8, flying every day and getting as high as 13000 ft. Where else in the world can you soar everyday in the winter and spring. Getting pampered with your own set ...
