What can I say but a GREAT start to the New Year with 6 of us launching the Nuthouse in Ojai and all making it over the pass to SB (5 landed Elings and Ron landed E Beach).  Beautiful hike in the cool weather to launch.  It was my first time launching there.  It's a smallish but immaculately clean launch site.  Handtools are kept up there for continued maintenance and SD got to it as soon as he was on launch.  I brought a go pro but unfortunately forgot the mounting clamp so I didn't take much in the way of in air footage.  Tim, Aaron and I got stuck low over the peak of Whiteldge for a little bit and I really wish I had the camera going then while the 3 of us circled together closely hoping for a climb that would let us chase down SD on his westbound leg.  Got a great climb over 4000' at the RR that made for an easy glide to Elings to join the party.  As soon as we can do another flight from Nuthouse westbound I'm in!
