Big Spring Hang Gliding Comp

An amazing experience! The week was packed with more flying than I ever expected to get. Clouds were popping and long tasks were getting called. 770 miles were possible and many people came close to getting all of them.

Home for the week

Modern camping

I got the chance to meet great people and fly excellent skies pushing my personal best day after day. After it was all said and done, I flew for a total of 20 hours and 412 miles far exceeding my expectations for this trip.

The trip wasn't without carnage. A destroyed tug plane. Fortunately the pilot was ok.
