Friday was supposed to be flyable with weak SW then several days of relentless, unflyable N wind. Friday it started cycling from the N while we were in the LZ parking lot. So much for a flight this weekend.
The weather gods made up for it by making the N winds end early, so Sunday was flyable!
I would have liked more airtime but I’m totally satisfied.
Great conditions for hiking back up. GREAT seeing old old friends and unseen newer friends at the LZ.
They were having good long flights from up high.
Launch & Land 20201122 – S3 155 M750
Sport 3 155 at the 750 launch.
Peter Swanson was one of a number of PG’s who hiked up and flew from the 750.November 23, 2020 at 5:49 AM #10797Mark HoffmannGeneral Member

Same for Soboba, which was good these last 2 days.
Got over 2 hours Sunday, and up to 5k, could hear the radio chatter from Marshall.
Today (Monday) got over 2.5 hours and up to 4500′.November 24, 2020 at 11:01 AM #10809
I was soooo happy to get a flight in on Sunday! 😍 I needed that badly. Over an hour of flying and up to 6,200ft. ☺️ It wasn’t even that cold up there. I had thermals on, which helped, but I was glad I didn’t need gloves. Too bad my GoPro kept turning itself off. 👎 Crestline launch and sky was so busy, it would have been fun footage of everyone there. Thanks for the webcam shot, David! 🙏😎
