Not sure if there is a prize for the wierdest post of the year. If so, here is my entry 😀
I'm trying to get some groundhandling practice, but everywhere is soaking wet. So even though I've only got a cheap groundhandling wind, I need to dry it out afterwards.
Having done it so far by just spreading it out as much as possible in the living room, and suffering the obvious marital problems that occur with such a plan, my mind has gone into overdrive thinking of other solutions I can use in the garage. I cant be the first surely?
Please post any novel ideas and pics of how you dry your wings here please?
So far, I'm thinking:
crossing backwards and forwards across the garage a few times. Not sure if I would have to drape the glider over it(is it so thin it could cause damage), or use clothes pegs on the trailing edge (would that also cause damage?) Has anyone dried their wing on a clothes line outside and did it cause damage
Or similar. I think you would have to concertina the wing garage floor to ceiling across its back to front, if that makes sense. Not sure the gaps would be wide enough when you get to the leading edge profiles. Would be draped over almost in a IVVVI shape
3. A homemade version of 2. I'm wondering about replacing the metal ends of the above with 2 garage-width lengths of plywood hanging from the ceiling, with holes the diameter of 40mm plastic plumbing pipes cut into them. Then concertina the wing over these front to back as above.
In all of the above cases, I've not really thought about the wires and risers. I'm assuming they could get in a right mess.
Its such a common problem, someone out there must have a good way of doing this. Or do I just need to man up and tell the wife to deal with her cream carpet...
Thanks in advance.
