Have you seen my Camelback?

Later when I tried to pick it up, it was not there anymore. If you see it please send me an e-mail and take it to the Windsports House. I will pick it up next ...

Re: Bathroom Location...

My five cents… I am for the gate-solution! It seems to be a win-win situation. Costs less, less obtrusive and we don't have to worry about rotors (why create additional problems if we don't have to). About the neighbors property value. I think the "Porter Potties" are pretty "lethal" at times. Dep...

Good one, Malury!
The difference between the two - Chip reacted much better.
My arms are way out there - I should have pulled in!
It was a good lesson.

Foot Launchable/Ground Towable/Aerotowable...

That looks like fun!
Must agree with OP - for a regular Joe Blow a little out of reach.

Ham Radio License Renewal

FYI... I received a letter from W5YI-VEC reminding me to renew my license for the amount of $7.00. About a week later I received another letter from ARRL asking to do the same for $ 39.00.

Torrey Pines...

Beautiful day - great video!
Wish I could have been there.
After a day like that - even hiking up doesn't seem so bad.
Was that a GoPro 3 video?
How long is the hike?

Sailplane...

That looks like fun!
I didn't know you broke your ankle?
Sorry to hear that.
This looks like a nice way to get over the pain and suffering.
I saw 9k at one point in the video - how high did you actually get?
Happy recovering!

Very cool video.

I do like the idea of going along the edge and under.
Well done!
