lake lowell

Today was a very strong day at pickle. Blaine, and John both jumped off the hill with there hangies. Blaine had a 1hr flight while John had about a 10 minute ride. The thermals were a little funky today so it made staying up hard. The sink was very strong. I didn’t even get my hangy out of the bag. I did get a early flight with my paraglider. It was a little rough but not bad. It was getting strong so I decided to land. Later that day me and some of the other paraglider pilots decided to go try to fly the dam at lake lowell north of pickle. It was quiet  strong and gusty to actualy get a good launch. I came close one time but almost bought the farm in doing so…… whoops…….. Then we headed back to pickle to get a late flight. It was still strong but I managed to get off. I had about a 10minute flight. I got out infront and about 250 over when the wind came back up and I just got parked. I decided to land after I was getting blown back at a pretty good rate. I would call it a good day over all.

weekend flying

Last Saturday the flying sucked for paragliders. I did get a short hop in my paraglider but nothing to really get excited about. My new RC glider on the other hand was just flat awesome. It is called a HoustonHawk. It has a wingspan of 126 inches. It is one nice thermal bird. I got over 30 minutes at kuna butte flying it in only thermal lift……….
