A long work day was now complete, and it was noon. Okay, I did work for a solid 2 hours. I decided to give Woody a call and see if he wanted to go to lunch. We had a most wonderful Thai lunch at the wagon in Kahuku, my first trip there. It was even better because I had forgotten my wallet. Thanks, Woody. During lunch the wind seemed to be subsiding, and a short chat with Alex gave us some motivation to meander on back to Kahana to take a peek.
We were so motivated that we decided to stop by Duck and Ginger's to say hello. Finally we pulled into Kahana and trudged toward the beach. Why are we doing this to ourselves? It can't be good. We stared out to sea, then at each other, then back to the sea, ending with our eyes rolling up to the clouds. No words were spoken. We did not want to jinx it. We got our bags and started hiking. Yes, even I was quiet, but inside giddy as hell.
The trail is starting to become overgrown due to lack of use. Oh, but it felt good to be heading up the hill. Hiking down was never a thought, but somehow, between the beach and launch it seemed to have changed. Bit stronger than we thought it would be. But a quick look at the sensors gave us a jolt to "Get Our Gear and Go!" Woody and I wanged it over for quite some time, and then buzzed the launch to see if top landing was on the menu. Nope, but a flight to the LZ was sure satisfying.
We flew for an hour but did not sound the alarm, since it was a short window. A small party of two snuck one in today and you had to have the Right Wing to join this Party.
It's Time to Fly???? Seriously!!! Get Your Gear, if you can remember where you put it, and how to use it, and Go!!!
