748 Shell Creek

Awoke early when my wife’s alarm went off.  Thought what the heck.  Just before leaving I got a Facebook message from a new guy … Mike Otten.  We met up at SC and set up.  There was just the slightest hint of a breeze from the NE.  I took off downwind and loitered while Mike set up.  He had a couple of failed launches but got off even though his wing was soaked.  Very impressive no wind launch with a wet wing.  Cruised a few miles east.  Saw a runway cut into one guys property and spiralled down to check it out.  Also chased down a fire only to find it was somebody burning trash.

The FlySkyHy app was having trouble doing accurate altitude calculations.  It was strange that it’s bad at SC but good at Placida.  It might be a cell phone vs. GPS thing.
