lunch flight

I flew Barclay Bay again at lunch today. I got another 45min. I had to leave to get back to work. It was perfect when I left. I have a feeling I’m going to get a lot of flying in this winter. The water had dropped 5 ft or so in the last week helping the ridge grow.

Barclay at lunch

I took a long lunch and went flying at Barclay Bay at lunch. I got around 45 minutes of flying. Eddy and Me had a good time. I’m going to have to do that more often. Nothing like having a flying site 15 minutes from my work.  When the water drops a little more the site will double in size…….. I can’t wait. This winter is going to be fun. I’ll have to get some pictures taken.  This site isn’t a beginner site but it sure does have a lot of potential to be a good site for a kiteing park.

Weekend flying.

Saturday morning we flew Barclay Bay in the morning. I flew for about 30 minutes. It was a fun place to fly. Saturday afternoon we went to pickle but there was no wind so the group headed to Swan Falls. Swan Falls was blowing pretty hard. We ended up winging off a fellow hanglider pilot. Sunday was strong as well. The hanglider was able to fly again. I might have to take up hangliding as well as paragliding to get the full amount of fun. This weekend was definetly a Hanglider weekend. Way to go Wayne!

Pickle on tuesday the 21st.

Pickle was really good on tuesday the 21st. Rob, Chuck and me all showd up out there around 5. There were 3 hangliders packing up from a good day of flying(Rich, Wayne, Tim). We launched and got 30 minutes of good wind flying. It started to die so we landed. About 15 minutes later the wind picked up and we launched again. I flew till 8:30 and got 500ft over. When we left it was dark and still flyable. The wind was some of the smoothest I’ve ever flown. Congrats to Chuck and Rob for landing were they launched…. First time ever!  SWEET!

Swan Falls

Looks like last weekend was a good weekend for flying. Tyler sent me some pictures and video of his weekend. Here is a video of one of his flights at SwanFalls this past weekend.

I was sick and not in town this last weekend. Man I’m jealous!
