Good flying going on in Dunlap -
A number of NorCal folks headed to Dunlap this weekend and conditions were reasonably good compared to Woodrat, OR and here on the coast, where the winds were howling. I was unable to get to Dunlap due to work commitments.
On Saturday Josh Cohn, on his new Ozone R11, flew South well beyond the distance anyone prior had flown - almost to Bakersfield.
Monday, a day with only 4000-5000' top of lift in the valley, was the day everyone was heading back to the Bay Area after flying.
Josh decided to fly. He launched around 11AM and flew for almost 7 hours and covered around 85 miles.
The California distance record is held by Dean Stratton - 147 miles from Walt's Point in the Owens, North into Nevada.
