Winter Solstice

Six hardy pilots braved strong conditions and numerous passing squalls to fly Kahana on the shortest day of the year: Annelies, Brian, Czech Peter, McStalker, Summer, and me. Czech Peter hiked and flew three times, and Brian hiked and flew twice. These Jackson Hole pilots love to hike! One-eye Jim was there too, checking out the conditions (and judging them too strong for his current recuperation level). Ginny came out to do some kiting, and Brazilian Ray stopped by with his family. The flying wasn't epic but after a month of nuking winds we're just happy to be flying, at least until the trades crank back up again on Sunday.
