Hey y'all,

Anyone interested in a trip to the owens this coming memorial day weekend? I unfortunately have to be back here at some point sunday night but that still leaves time for flying on friday/sat/sun for me.

My vario said I got to 10028 on monday but after I checked the tracklog...

vannoppen, if you are looking for an owens trip some of my flying buddies from berkeley will be there this friday through sunday. I will likely not as I did something (non-hg related) to my neck and have about 25% range of motion on my neck right now which doesn't seem conducive to flying, but I bel...
