Since I know you are OK, I laughed out loud at your retelling of the incident. You have my sympathy at loss of your gear. Most pilots have to wait for film to see their glider destroyed with them in it. You got to actually observe the Owens River roll your glider into a ball. Oh wait, that wasn't ev...

2) Attack faired downtubes 68"
2) round downtubes 66" (maybe for Falcon 205)

These could be yours at no cost. Let me know via tel please.

Rome:

I'll bet Caitlyn has the better wardrobe -- after all, she gets to borrow from all those Kardashian girls. On the other hand, Jennifer has those dimples. Choose wisely, my son!

Well all right then. Will the chef who created Pot "F" Organic Beef Chili step forward please. Shoot, I wish we still had those papers saying who had turned in what. You cooks know who you are. Someone out there, please step up and claim those bragging rights. We loved your chili. You deserve a prize.

Chili Cookoff 2013

Vrezh -- so sorry you tweaked your own wing. Downtubes are so much easier to fix. Thanks for your good analysis of conditions and pilot reactions too. Man, it sucks to be humbled by the Gods of Wind and Mountain.

Best wishes for a quick recovery.

I'm on board to help and likely a couple of other friends too.

? Shall we bring big trash bags? If no dumpster, we may have to haul the real trash away in our vehicles to have it be gone.

? Do they still live at 2343 Cedarwood St, West Covina?
