    I'm also planning to fly Sunday if the forecast holds. BB

    TG planning to fly hopefully around 10AM as it looks like the wave will die later in the afternoon.

    Looks like a tight window. Fog clears about 11:00 (per skysight skew T). Wave quits at goat about 1 pm (goat skew-T, looking at ridge top winds, along with 700 mb). The wave is best at yolla peak, so I guess take off as soon as it's VFR, climb goat go up to yolla see how far you can go, return. I'm going to bail out, just because lots to do here. Have fun! -BB

    You guys missed an amazing wave day. But we all decided not to post to OLC and flew without trackers and flarms so not to make it too painful to watch. Also I heard that the webcam stopped operating in the morning and showed my glider on the ground in fog the whole day. We need to fix the webcam.

    I showed this to Beth (my wife) who laughed out loud. "Aha, he knows you wasted the whole day looking at the web cam and tracker to see if you made a mistake!" John
