The flight on
HOLC and on
Google Maps/Earth.
The day started out blue after a few clouds before 5 AM. Then after sunrise a
light version of the over running began. The cu's were thin, barely more than
wisps, but they were there and providing the hope that we come here for.
Gary, realizing that if he is going to take a high tow, he had... mehr

Having missed the day before, Gary made an attempt on the day with
light winds and almost no over running. Even with a tow to 6,500', he was not
able to stay up as there was a strong inversion near Laredo and after a couple
of attempts to get through it he landed in plowed field near highway 359 on the
south east side of Laredo. mehr

Dave Prentice, towing out the Zapata IBC bank president's field
east of Zapata, went 246 miles, pretty much along the same course that Pete
Lehmann took west of highway 83 and east of Del Rio. This is the standard route
for paraglider flights here. Looks like he got stopped by the same high clouds
that convinced Pete to stop and come back. mehr
