Two of our most determined and desperate monkeys didn't find this variety spicy enough, so they left for Mexico almost two weeks ago. On their way out, they threw a little hex on their comrades at home to prevent any XC flying. We've flown seven or eight days since then, but sure enough, we aren't getting high or going anywhere. We've chased it all over the island and we've been rewarded with plenty of scratchy, squall dodgy, thermic airtime, but various factors like clouds and stability have kept us local.
But those Hexicans didn't count on just how determined and desperate this crew can be. We can't wait until they come back to have the curse lifted. We need to fly XC now! We'll just have to chase it even harder! The next few days look promising. Hope to see some of you determined and desperate souls out there...
Roll call: Nanakuli, Makua, HDH, Kaena, Makapuu, Kahana, Koko Crater, Koko Head, Diamond Head, and probably more than I'm forgetting.
