Thomas Hirsch: Hi all - I'm a visiting pilot coming from Norway (IPP5) and would bring my gear in the hope for a flight, or a hike & fly on Sunday, or maybe even Saturday evening. I will also be around for the rest of the week, just busier.  If you are planning anything good in the Portland area, I'd be happy to

Anyone flying Local today ro tomorrow?
Mitch: Sounds intriguing. If I had a bit more energy and weren't just a tiny bit hung over this morning I'd be up for it. But as it is, I think I'll be prudent and stick with a nice glass-off at Pine over that option. Anyone else doing anything local that's not quite so adventurous? On Sep 1, 2014, at 10:3
Anyone flying Local today ro tomorrow?
Luke: Myself and SpyderMonkey are planning to go to Silver Star.  We are going to check the road to the main parking lot which I think is open.  We plan to hike the ridge to launch then land in the west parking lot and hike back to the main parking lot.  I am going to make sure about the roads then we pla

Mitch: Has a consensus formed yet? If all else fails I'm going down to Pine to fly this evening, but I'd rather stay closer to home if a plan coalesces. mitch On Sep 1, 2014, at 9:55 AM, wrote: Does Hoover or Bald Butte appeal to anyone.  If not I think the coast is the way to go

Jan: Tillamook has a high overcast layer at 7000' now that was supposed to have burned off already.  Looking at the satellite imagery there I see a lot of clouds in that area and more to the west.  If they don't burn off as forecast much of the thermal activity around Sollie may be shut down. Just my $0

Steve Forslund:  Jim listed the closure of the Dole Valley road to Silverstar, as far as I know the other way in from Silver Falls may still be an option. Forecast looks OK but possibility of being too north, I thought about going to Silverstar yesterday. Depending on when it burns off a chance to hike & fly Angor

Luke: The options that I see are Detroit (Hoover Ridge), bald Butte, Sollie and Kiwanda.   Pros and cons:   Detroit Pros:  Beautiful scenery, excellent lapse rate and lots of fun when it works. Detroit cons:  need to clear trees near launch, longer drive,  winds may be a little more NW than ideal.   Bald
