October Long Weekend

We just got home from a lovely long weekend down at the farm in Binalong. The weather was amazing and we managed to get 2 flights in.

On Saturday morning I took James for a flight. The winds were the typical Spring Westerlies, so I decided to mix it up a bit and we took off from closer to Harden than we would normally do. I set myself a few practice targets and managed to get close to all of them. A couple of them were within 2 metres using the logger.

On Sunday morning, I had planned to do a solo flight with my bike strapped to the side of the basket for retrieve, but my cousins asked if they could come out for a flight so I managed to score a retrieve crew. The flight was pretty nondescript, flying straight down one of the main roads in the area and landing next to the house of one of my other cousins.

It was nice to get back in the air again. We (James and I) are planning to head up to the Hunter Valley on Sunday. The weather is looking pretty good at this stage, so will be great to get some more flying in.
