|Photos from Oceanside - Oct 11|
Erik Webb: I just thought I'd post my photos here from my trip up to Oceanside a week ago. I have a few of some pilots flying over sunset - https://www.flickr.com/photos/erikwebb/sets/72157648821435756/ Thanks all for the hospitality, Erik
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"

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

dave_blizzard: Pilots today included Nick B, Andrew P, Rob S, Alan F, Pat J, Mike C, John B, Kelly and students, and me. It was clear at the farm but I could see that launch would still be in the clouds when many of us arrived - had my lights and wipers on en route. Dropping Rob's rig off at the lz allowed us t
