Surprise, surprise, we had West wind today.
No one was forecasting that! J and I made it up to Camas this afternoon to
check it out, and had a rockin' good time.
We went straight to the "Hysterical Site," but
there wasn't any wind. So, we went back to the ridge line because we saw
sure signs of wind there. We kited on the North side of the
road. The wind was pretty ratty where we launched and along the
ridge, but J found some sweet cruising winds just at the bottom of the
hills on the East side. Since I was getting spanked on the ridge line, I
cruised down to fly with him. I found a knob that stuck up into the strong
20+mph winds that was great for boosting HUGE air off of with a soft powdery
landing in smooth 12-15mph wind.
We had an absolutely stellar day. One of the
best of the year. Wish Y'all were there. Oh well, maybe tomorrow,
