Very nice Mike. That's too cool having an air facility to land at. _________________ H-4 (1976) UP Saturn 147 & UP Axis 13

Yeah - the bowl. If I was to be losing much more altitude I would have to have headed west to begin looking for a bailout LZ. Much further south and I'd have been getting too close to the lee side of another lower S facing spur. The thermal came through at a good time. It was an interesting day during which the wind slowly went from SSE to SW during the time I was aloft. More paras would have flown but the wind speed was a bit strong ( 15-18 ) and a bit cross for their experience levels. Tekoa's best wind direction is WSW-W - at least in my thoughts as it was only the 3rd time I've flown the site.
WoW what a nice flight that is the ultimate experience for every hangglider who will try to soar high!
Thanks - It was a timely experience for me as I'm just getting used to how the Sport 2 175 handles best in 360s. I'm on the light side for the glider and had to experiment with VG setting and speed to fly to get a radius that worked. _________________ U2 160 • Chattaroy, WA - USA
