Back to Taylor

After a weekend off due to shaky weather, I was back at Taylor on Saturday the 19th joining John M. and his five students for a great weather day on the training hill. Thanks to John for letting me know he would be there. Two of the students are Blue Sky truck tow students, working on foot launch skills with John. A third was Mike C, back in the States after a five year hiatus in Indonesia where his wife was posted with AID. Great to have Mike back. I arrived late, so only got in three flights. My first landing was a fast ground skimmer ending in an impressive pop-up to point no-stepper. I have to admit the next two were not so fine, but they were safe.
Here'a a tip - buy gas in Falmouth when going to Taylor. Prices go up in King George to the east. Falmouth had a low of $1.85, half a dollar below my local Springfield prices.
