    Skiing, love bike rides and tennis, and now that we have a toddler on our hands we're reaching the stage where we can do all of these things as a family, which is exciting!

    I have around 800hrs , had many cool experiences and a few scares . The sky is like a giant lava lite landscape, air movement can lift a Sailplane over 1000'ft pre minute up in rising air currents , also air flow over mountain ranges can set up a standing wave that can be "surfed " tens of thousands of feet upward.When you see a lenticular cloud ,like the one over Wildcat on Saturday.
    That indicates the presence of a Wave.
    Spring is best for my highest altitudes over the years , cool air warn sunshine .Fall when Hawks migrate is cool , as your circling in a thermal they spot you and fly over and join in , sometimes you may see dozens all around.We have a Bald Eagle living not too far from the airport ,Flew in a thermal 30' away and gained 3000'ft with him.



    Not my vid but this is what Wildcat looks like from above riding Wave

    2014 World Gliding Contest Finland 3D Flight traces . Not much of a spectator sport but this gives an idea of whats involved.
