    Bear Valley Land Out

    A week ago Thursday I landed out at the Bear Valley Ranch. The land out itself was relatively straightforward. But events leading up to land out were not, and were a pretty close call for me and my glider. Conditions were challenging, but I made several mistakes that exacerbated the situation. I decided to write up the experience with the wish that others might learn from my mistakes.

    Ramy Yanetz generously helped me sort through these events and offered frank feedback at a time when I might have been inclined to rationalize things instead of digging deeper and asking myself the tough questions.

    I also appreciate Ben Mayes input. Ben was flying that day and experienced some of the same conditions that I did.

    Finally, Alex Neigher took my somewhat clinky write-up and formatted it using an online publishing tool. It's a lot more readable and accessible in Alex's version, plus he added some nice photo captions.

    Nice write up Tom. Sounds like you learned something of value and were willing to share the lesson with others. Although it was a first for you, I can assure you that was not the first time that your glider has been landed on the Bear Valley Ranch access road.
