Everyone over here in So Cal had the day off. Even tho the conditions were garbage everyone wanted to fly.

This day was very hot for November. I blame chemtrails.

When we got to launch, there were a bunch of pilots getting ready to fly.

I told Chris that he needed to give the report.

Chris launched first and ended up at the bailout.

We were a little apprehensive to launch, but we wanted to fly.

This was my first day back in the air after the chaos at Palomar one week earlier.

So today, I am going to just take it easy.

As the day progressed, more and more pilots were in the air.

Some of them crossed and went to El Cap.

I made the decision to stay at the site and fly.

It took me about an hour to regain the confidents that I lost.

I practiced top landings and watched some of the more excellent pilots.

I launched a few more times before the day was over.

There was a nice glass off at the end of the day. I was able to get above the launch.

At this point in the day, I felt like I was back to normal.

Flying around over launch is fun when there is not much air traffic.

Another smooth landing, but I missed it because the GoPro was off.

Chris came to tell me that he had to hike because he launched first. LOL
