Hello Sam!!

It always brings me a big smile to hear from you!!    :D

I'm sad to say that I've been getting a lot more courtroom time than air time.   :(

How about you? How is your thermal-on-demand vehicle treating you?

:salute:

Calm this morning. Was able to let go of the stick and get a few pics with my phone. ~1,000agl

Nationals sail plane comp started in Uvalde yesterday. https://wgc2024uvalde.com/2023-uvalde-glide/

Next year is sailplane Worlds Comp down there.

I bet you could fly this Quicksilver Sprint without any trouble.

Sam, get the trike to Torrey Pines, Ca and buzz the ridge while sounding off an amplified whistle every time you cross over launch.

I'd have to stop >50 times to re fuel between here and there. I still think setting up the scooter tow on the old glider strip is the solution.

Did you hear the news? The newest U.S.hang glider manufacturer is now located 15min. from Torrey Pines.

That should increase the HG representation at TPGP.

It's Bob's old friends at Thunderbird Kites.
