-ERiC-MiLLER-: In that Jockey Sanderson video (security in flight 2) I got for the library he talks about using spins to enter thermals... obviously an advanced technique but kind of in the same vein...either way these guys have cool jobs.ERiC On Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 7:48 AM, Ancil Nance wrot

Chehalem today
Steve Forslund: Thanks for the photos. Chehalem can be straight forward and tricky at other times. It is a shallow ridge and often no wind below so the wind hitting the ridge has little vertical component.  Steve Forslund Sent on the new Sprint Network ----- Reply message ----- From: "Jim Dukes"

Jim Dukes: I guess I never use Google photos and thus need to learn to share a link properly.

Jim Dukes: What a beautiful day.  Quite a few pilots out and some found the lift for awhile.  I enjoyed watching and absorbing the site knowledge. I decided not to fly after seeing some close encounters with trees..I'll get more mileage in before trying this site. Got a handful of pics though: https://plus.goo

Steve Forslund: Gusts to 45 at the coast, very windy aloft. Bring your speedbar and or hang glider and be prepared to fly wind without much lift if you get up. It could be ok (probably earlier) but often with wind aloft forecast it s not much fun unless the wind stays way up above. I might be more tempted to try Pe
