Re: Website migration

Hi Vresh, Maybe you need to clear the cache on your phone browser? I don't have an android so I don't know how to do that... possibly these instructions would be helpful: https://www.wikihow.tech/Clear-Your-Browser%27s-Cache-on-an-Android Next time you see me out at Kagel I can take a look at your p...

Re: Website migration

I'm still working on getting the rest of the site moved over to the new host. Once that's done, I will work on outstanding issues like this. Please feel free to post any problems you see with the site here and I'll see what I can do. I'll look into youtube video embedding, as well as imgur image emb...

Website migration

Hi all, As a first step in the website migration, I have updated the forum software (phpBB) to the latest version and moved it to a new hosting service, A2 Hosting. The website itself is still on the old host (ReadyHosting) but it now links to the new forum. Please let me know if you encounter any p...

FYI - Dave Turner from http://sierraparagliding.com found Ken's glider and has the precise location recorded. I put Dave and Ken in touch with each other (hopefully) and the glider can soon be high and dry rather than submerged and damp. Cheers, JD Sooo... here's the weird thing. That's not Ken's g...

Second. Did you ever recover the glider. Nope. Third you are lucky to be alive. Imagine if that had not been a calm section you touched down in. Yup. If I had made it to even the other side of that loop, it would have been a lot more dramatic. My first and only flight from Walt’s was landing at the...

It’s all right there. If you don’t have it, we can provide you with another copy. O.K. Please provide it right here and we'll see if it cites any of my actual words that were found to be in violation. Justice requires a number of things including: 1. Objective rules. 2. Citation of specific conduct...

I will add my story here, that Ken alluded to in the Owens post in the events section. I was setting up a landing north of BIGEARS (Owens Valley Radio Observatory) next to the Owens River. I planned a left handed aircraft approach onto a section of dirt road that was straight, clear of high bushes a...

I am disappointed for a number of reasons, but most notable was the fact that it was done without citing any actual rule that was broken and without giving me a chance to confront the people calling for my ban "You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, se...

Sad news. Greg helped me get back into the air after a 10 year layoff from the sport, and also fixed some bad habits that I had developed, so that I could be the pilot I am today. Thanks for everything, Greg.

The hurricane plan looks good but I'm going to be on another trip the weekend before, returning Monday the 14th. Currently my thought was to leave on the 17th and return to LA on the 23rd, figuring out the details dependent on who is riding with me and what Greg, Steve, &co were doing. Are you guys ...
