Sled Ride to Parma
Trying to squeeze a flight out of a poor day on my last opportunity. Nice day to be out and enjoying the weather solo. Left the Toyota at El Cielito & Gibraltar. Had to wait about 5 minutes for the first vehicle, a pickup with a couple of bikers. The Rock looked to weak, and the Skyport was stiff down, so they dropped me at the top of Gibraltar. Hike a half mile over to The Brotherhood. Coming in nice, about 5 to 12+, but getting weaker by the time I pulled up. Clean launch about 11:15, but didn't get up and had to reach for the road after a 180 across the gap.
Hike back up, but it died. Figured the Skyport would work, but the hike down was over a mile and I'd have to pack up. Hike over to the HG launch instead and tried a cross wind frontal down the fire break. Ended up in the brush. Crashed through a bush on the second try, but got off and veered right through the saddle. Got in a turn or 2 in a few spots, but it was mostly an extended sleder. Land at Parma about 12:45.
Kevin came in a little high on Gilbert's old Fusion, but popped his drogue and set down on target.
Walk back up to get the car.
