For when I eventually get out of prison and get my bones back into the air, maybe a few thoughts from the HG perspective:

– I like the idea of reducing our annual nut.

– Put some astroturf out there for us to hit.  IIRC, before the LZ being full grass, there were some circles.  Wingtips matter.

– Dirt sucks.  #2 behind UV in gear degradation.  Maybe do a one-time lay-down of class 2 road  base, covered by DG.  It’ll be a lot kinder to gear and less abrasive on a whack… maybe.

– Seems like the PG challenge is on launch, the HG challenge is on landing.  The grass more than looks purty.  It saves skin.  Replacing it should take that into account.
