Where and when we've been flying
Well what do the forecasters know? They all suggested it would get windier into the night - which cast a big doubt on any solstice flying.
Then again, sometimes you just have to be in it to win it. Turned out to be a lovely evening and flyable - only just though as at times not enough wind!
I've been back up in Scotland for 8.5 years and have made several trips to look at the flying site by Thornhill but never managed to fly it.
I was asked to talk a wee bit about paragliding at the muckle town festival and for some reason said yep. no problem.
Rob and Fred saw the rasp forecast and headed north but for those of us that were stuck in work (+ Mr Lyal) an evening flyabout at witchieknowe looked on the cards.
Another flyable day spent working. Conditions looked to be ok for an evening fly so made a plan with Stephen to head up to Tinto.
Thursday night looked promising for an evening float about. Lambing is almost over so time to get out and about. Conditions were looking a tad strong at 5.30 but forcast to drop off.
A plan was formed to head to witchie with Stephen. Meeting Fred, Dave and Dudley there.
