Does it have to be wheelchair accessible too?

So the regulation is concerned with the problem of a 3 gallon toilet getting into a raging river full of trash and wildlife scat? If it's a valid concern, then why is it OK if it's attached?

I know, I know, just shut up and swallow it.

There are areas where people sled ride or snowboard in the mountains. There are many areas where people surf at the beach or play volleyball. There are hiking areas, and off-roading areas, and dog parks full of land sharks. There are all kinds of activities that people seemed to be able to do reason...

Like him or not, (I don't even know him) it seems to me Bob K. is within his rights, and banning or assaulting a man for filming at a hang gliding site with cameras running everywhere is nobody's right to do. Not liking someone is just too bad in public places. I'm no cheerleader for him or his opin...

Is there a zombie hang gliding club? I mean seriously - "senior" kind of understates the situation, doesn't it?

Congratulation Joe!

Absolutely deserved and long overdue. One of the best human beings I've met in or out of hang gliding. I'd probably be dead if not for the things he's taught me. I never saw Joe when he wasn't doing something to help either the club or someone in it. Awesome dude.

I know it says "Hook In" right at launch, but maybe we need it in braille too.

Glad you're alright.

You can see the problem right there. Look at the riff raff that gathers on it. Probably some kind of hang glider gang that kicks tiny kittens for fun and then leaves those mysterious evil contrails in the sky. We need less benches and more prison cells.

That is a nice streamer, and surprisingly it performs just as well in a north wind.

So where is everybody? I thought there was some enthusiasm for this trip.
There may be some, but I think a lot of people never visit this forum. Put a sign up in the LZ.

Not sure if I can make it or not, but I'm interested. Regardless, I hope some in the club do it anyway. It's a great adventure, that people who never did it should try.

I think Ken's proof concludes that the answer is to keep the cooler closed, but this is a perversion against man, God, and nature, and that's all due to that ancient Eve chick. We will never get back to the garden.

The new bench is a beautiful piece of artistry that should be around a long time. Just an amazing piece of work guys. I love it. Really well done.

I'll feel kind of guilty sitting my ass on it. That wasn't always true, but my ass is not what it used to be.

It's a gradient from the warmest areas inside the beer to the interface with the slurry where answer one prevails, then to the center of the slurry where answer two takes over. The gradient then goes back the other way toward the outside of the cooler to the warmth again. It's like a keg party, wher...

What if the heat of fusion mechanism requires more heat, but that heat is not forthcoming fast enough? Then the ice does not melt, or the slurry refreezes. Therefore, the priority, as with all things, is to get more beer, fast! That should be the focus of those involved.

The glider storage cell still needs a closing and locking mechanism installed, which I plan to do Tomorrow (Friday 5/3). If all goes well with that, then they will just need the final paint added, which I'll leave to someone else at your leisure.
