As many of us all around the island can attest, there's nothing like living right next to your favorite flying site. The forecast called for very strong wind, but the sensor was strangely mellow, and a quick drive out to check conditions confirmed that the forecast was, ahem, overblown. And while the tenuous thread of rural island roadway that connects everyone else to this place was temporarily tied off, three lucky pilots savored a gorgeous afternoon session along the foothills of the Koolaus that lasted until the last sunbeams streamed over the mountains. Kudos to Allegra for the genius plan to drive the long way around the island to get here! And thanks to Duck for the timely retrieve!
