Flew at Busse Woods today with Xay, Karl and Nhut. Nhut was already there when we arrived -- I guess he was there flying before I posted up.

Strong, very bumpy wind, occasionally dropping off to nearly nothing. Full and extra vent were flown. I stayed on after the other guys left and met a dualie flyer named Travis. I told him about the forum and put the Phantom Rev handles in his hands and told him to fly. He did really well for someone trying it the first time, probably because he had such a great teacher. 8-)

I told him there is no turning back now and he seemed to take the news quite well. I believe his addiction has begun.

Need more IKE business cards, didn't have any left that I could give him. Had to write the info down on a piece of scrap paper for him. I hope he doesn't lose it.

A good time was had by all. Didn't bring the Blast with me, way too much wind for that beast unless I was buggying. You must come fly with us sometime.

How am I missing all the fun flying? :-( I'm pretty sure I checked the forum first thing Sunday morning . . . .

Sounds like you guys had a good time. Well, I did get to change out the pads & rotors on my car (with help from a friend) . . . plus a whole bunch of other chores and errands. I think I'd rather be flying . . .
