By way of intro, and keeping our stories relative to our local area, here is a story written back in 2006 by Pilot and Author Jim Conger about landing out at Elk Creek.
Here’s Jim on the ground, with tow plane on the horizon ( just above the ridge, left of center)….
That was Jim was flying his mini nimbus back then.
More recently Jim has taken to writing Sci-Fi stories.
Check this one out, available for Kindle at Amazon…
In chapter four the pilots take a trip to the weather office to evaluate the soaring conditions – in this Sci-Fi story, they do not have the advantage of BLIP Maps fro Dr Jack.
