Chasing the sun

One week of nice weather and almost no work during the weekend. Seems like the stars aligned for me after long 2 months with pouring rain. On Friday I woke up with a flu but I was consistent to fly next day no matter what.

Me, Alan and Italians Lupo and Davide, went to the ramp above Gorica, it is nice that here you get company to fly almost any day you go for it. Ramp is nicer then paragliding take off as you have enough of space to start your flying in a normal way and it takes you more time to get bombed out.

Well, December and sun here in Slovenia truly makes a hang glider pilots dream. Where else you can fly such a thermals in middle of winter.
Few more weeks and the day will start to get longer again, thoughts are in 2011 already.

In two days I took GoPro with me and made this nice little video of us chasing the sun in the middle of winter. Enjoy it!

Wow, I am really jealous. We can't even fly dragonFly right now because it's way too cold to do so.
May Spring arrive soon!!!
