What's at the end of the Rainbow?

Turns out its a landing zone and my front yard!

Didn't make the finals in the Sandisk contest I saw today. Oh well, hopefully I will have better luck with the Excedrin contest which the finals will start in two days. It's pretty chilly here, I ridge soared on Sunday for a little bit before I got too cold. I'm looking forward to experimenting with new approaches sometime when it's calm. That day my downwind was low and slightly fast over the cabins and did a low turn back towards my house for final and landed maybe 20 or 30' from the gravel road in front of my house. It was pretty fun, I did the whole thing at half vg, but I'd like to get more speed on my downwind with full vg . . .
