Saturday 6-20-15 Fly

Postby basicbill » Thu, Jun 18 2015, 07:23 PM

I've been boring holes in the sky several days a week flying my Revs solo. Today at the squishy, wet East Side Sports Complex. I need to know what I don't know about group flying. Pretending to fly in a group only goes so far.

Anyone up for Saturday?

Maybe. Have work work + yard work, so don't know. Also, wife may put a ban on kite flying due to me being gone for kite flying a bit last weekend and next weekend.

Yard work is what Sunday mornings were created for!!!!!

Yeah, crank up the lawnmower at 6a.m. -- got neighbors you don't like?

Sorry. Working on all of the stuff I've had to put off. Set building has been dominating my time. Thank goodness tomorrows Fathers Day'. I hope to get in an hour or two of flying. C'mon wind.

And here I am on the beach at Cape May, NJ at sunset with my mid-vent.

On the job with a couple of days to kill before heading home. Brought my kite bag. Excellent wind.

It's always tough flying on crowded beaches . . . . what with the crazy wind off the ocean and all the obstacles and all . . . I don't know how you could stand it.
