Previously, no one had searched for waves...

Ron liked what he saw and is now planning for some soaring exploration of...

Is the poor turnout these days because you are looking at a poor soaring forecast? In the winter, we can get good lift from convergence, ridge lift, and wave. Anybody could see that the sky was overcast today, and...
