Re: Storms

Most of it missed us too. We got clipped by a downpour and that's about it. We did see almost continuous lightning south of us for almost 3 hours.

Saturday April 11th

Weather looks decent. I have had a chance to fly much this year, but I might have a few hours in the afternoon ... maybe. Anybody? Anybody?

Re: BRAKES

I tend to fly fairly fast, which is sort of what spurred the question. I'm thinking I should try flying with more break then what I typically fly with and see what happens.

BRAKES

I was out doing a little flying today, and I got to thinking, how do you know when you've got the right amount of brake on your lines? I know it's a subjective thing, but I'm curious what YOU'RE indicators are that things are just right?

Re: Anybody from Michigan?

I swear to God I thought Swannie was talking about Holland. You know tulips and wooden shoes? Since he's been in Europe for work so much I thought his family immigrated. It's been a long week. Oh, believe me, the Holland I'm talking about has tulips, wooden shoes, windmills, and lots of last names ...

Re: Anybody from Michigan?

LOL, I'll live with the drive. :) it's all private beach South of the channel, which wouldn't have been a problem 15 years ago, but after all the law suits from the new subdivision who were sold something they shouldn't have been (long story) it's been a bit challenging. Best times for our beach is ...

Re: Anybody from Michigan?

Oh man ... then I'd have to drive ALL the way around the Lake Macatawa! :) I've never been over to that beach, so I can't speak to how crowded it is on the weekends. BBQ at my place in the evening, though.

Re: Anybody from Michigan?

LOL ... I'd say you could make a guess from my avatar, but you could only deduce I'm east of Wisconsin.:) I'd love to do an IKE event there, but unfortunately the beach isn't very big. Well, actually, it's pretty large but the dune grass has taken over most of it leaving a narrow swath of sand betwe...

Re: Anybody from Michigan?

My parents have a place in Holland. I've been known to frequent the beach there during the summer.
