Sep 4/03      Tandem flight with Anne - Aug 29/03

Here and there we would hit a thermal turbulence and at one point we got shaken quite a bit. More then I liked and as you see on next picture Anne did not like it either. 

Sep 2/03      Flying at Chuck's place - Aug 31/03

The take off area was quite tricky. Spot 40 by 40 ft with 20 ft cliff at the edge. Definitely not a place for beginner to take off. Even I had little butterflies in my stomach.... 

      See video of my tricky takeoff here. 1.4 MB.
