Many thanks to Simon for organising the weekend. I had a great couple of days (and nights!).

I got just under 8 hours airtime over Friday and Saturday which cant be too bad. I also got some personal bests and ticked off some of the to do list. These included highest flight ever at just over 8500' (wanted to do 10000' but airspace and cold prevented it) beating my previous best on a paraglider of 6500'. I also had the longest period of flight with the engine off and also the best climb engine off with the motor, at one point I got a climb from 1300' to 3500'. Conditions on Saturday were superb with thermals of 3.5m/s kicking off. lots of sink about too though and at times was barely maintaining on full chat with 65kg of thrust. Getting the glory (about the same time as Dan the man was also awesome, I have been wanting to see the glory for ages but never quite got it. Flying with the balloons was also cool and another first for me. The WW2 airstrip flight was pretty cool too, thanks guys, if I hadn't seen you go over I wouldn't of done it.

I will try to sort out some of the photo's and post them up.

Nice to meet you all and can't wait for the next one.
