The strangest part of the day was early on, when Woody and I were the only two pilots up. I wasn't sure what planet I was on! Even after we'd been joined by a handful of other pilots, it was hard to tell who anyone was up there, since everyone was trying out demo wings. For the longest time I thought I was flying downrange with Christopher, until he got close enough for me to see that it was Jorge under his wing.
Thanks to Jorge for taking the cover shot for this story. It looks like Dave's glider but he swears it's mine! Either way it's a classic shot - thanks man!
I forgot to take photos since I was focused on video, but I did get one shot of the overdevelopment that was growing out from Olomana. Dave says that's Kahana sunshine. Or maybe Woody is Kahana sunshine, I'm not sure. Either way it was fun making the most of a marginal day. I was playing with a new instrument that connects to flying apps on my phone using bluetooth, and I'm looking forward to more accurate and better detailed track logs like this one.
I think we got at least eight pilots up: me, Woody, Thom, Ike, Jorge, Dave, TommyRD, and Christopher. It was also great to see Joey, Mad Dog, Nova, Allegra and FireJack out there.
