A labor day weekend, east side sierras the Bridgeport Fly In was hosted by Pam and supported by the motherlode sky riders club. Terrific job.
Around Bridgeport there are a number of sites, Saturday we launched Sweetwater, so many folks were sinking out, I threw off my jacket. That was a mistake, I went to16k where it was well below freezing!
Flying here always leaves an impression on me, so much diversity, so many possibilities, fantastic scenery.
Landing in Nevada can be lonely, no cell phone, no radio, no people. How was a found ? Well that was my flight plan direction, but it was the SPOT that got me found. I was too cold to make the jump to Hawthorne.
The go-pro took this random shot mid-slide.

Catching up again. A few weeks ago, Fort Funston hosted the annual air races. The weather was about the most perfect one could have arranged with the weather gods.http://flyfunston.org/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1332&sid=4628af8d9ac10f61d8d9f30b1e3634bf#p3206
Funston can be a really beautiful place to fly.
