Mark Sanzone: Dave B and I flew Sollie today. It was nice at launch with some small cu's in the sky. Thermals were small and not well organized so we both ended up with short flights. We did not go to CLO as we could see it was in the fog/clouds. Mark

John Saltveit: Thanks for posting this. The fire issue has been one that we frequently have to deal with at Chelan. It's something I always think about before going flying there.

John Saltveit: This is a very cool article. Thanks for sharing this Mark. It can give us something to dream about when we retire, or one of the places for a vacation.

Bill B - Corvallis: A bit tardy here and not free flight, but still worth posting, I believe. I took a ride with Mark F on his two-seater aircraft. We met at the airport near Hubbard and he pulled out his flying machine from a hangar that was occupied by several other sport and ultralight vehicles. I was expecting a

Robert Redman: There's another NW low-mid 20s forecast for the coast tomorrow. Is CLO flyable with that much wind? I've been at Kiwanda all week and it's been blown out every day, even for my 16m Firefly. I've been kiteboarding during the day instead, and then getting a short flying window just before sunset. ---

|Is it a good idea to scotchguard harnesses?|
Shannon: NO! At least I don't think so. I'm about 20 years out of date but as I recall Scotchgard is a silicone-based lubricant that just happens to waterproof. In the short-term it might work fine but in the long term I think that it takes accelerates plasticizer migration. It will dry and brittle nylon, po

Douglas Mullin: You actually can with the Oudie 3, well sort of. You can download a simulator from Naviter's website that you run on your PC that acts like the real instrument. It can 'replay' a flight (you can supply an IGC or other file formats used to record a flight) and you can push the buttons etc. So you can
