Catch Me One

My video of Wednesday's awesome thermal research and cross country mayhem. Thanks to all the monkeys that made it such a fun day. At least sixteen pilots flew, and almost every one of them left Kahana in one way or another. It was (another) dream flight for me, fun thermaling with all you guys, and my fourth time to the golf course. Roll call: Maui Doug, Woody, Scot, Mad Dog, me, Reaper, Joey, Thom, Lake, Brian, Will, Duck, Jim, Gaza, Kevin, Sharky.

Seems more and more likely that the winter doldrums are finally at an end and my hibernation can end. WOOOOHOOOO! There's flying to be done!

Thom said...

Dont get too excited shut down on Friday and Saturday due to high trade winds.

Story is now me there when it might be good just to get chance.

Thanks for the log update Alex, that was super snot rocket fun and when we got high they were just big ol therms.

Hopefully Winter doldrums have let Spring have the glory.

It's Time to Fly Get Your Gear and Be Ready!!!!

Wow, Just watched the video. Nice except for me getting called the javelin man.

Duck said...

Javelin Man! LMAO JJJ, SH, JM which moniker to choose???

Great video Alex! I like the fact that you started with the trip from home and went all the way through. Gave it a good story line.

Great video Alex! I really enjoyed it. you have such a steady hand. Great editing. I had an awesome flight that evening when the winds turned more North. A little bummed I couldnt make the party but this day will be with me for a long time.
