January and spring

Well as I am still waiting for that new harness I took a chance of a nice weather to fly with my girlfriend in tandem. What a day!!!???
At the start we went together with my friend instructor and our student so it was quite a nice picture at the top, to see 3 gliders at the top in January when mostly snow is at the top in this time.
There were changing wind conditions at the top so with the first nose breeze we went for a run and forgot about the camera that was waiting at the crossbar to film this nice flight. Soon after the start we found a nice lift wich took us up with no problem as we both weight together around 130 kg :) We climbed up to 1500 m and went for a nice glide over the valley and landed perfectly with 3 wells atached to the glider.
I think that waiting for a new harness will be even more dificult now :)

At the top cheking for everything

Nervous? :=)

Remembering of the spring

We have started with the new year and now I am waiting for the spring to come. Just yesterday we got first snow here in Tolmin (Slovenia), so a bit more waiting to get to the starting place of Kobala.
Here is a video that I have made in early spring of 2007. Heights up to 2400m, beautiful views of our eastern part of Alps. The peaks were still in snow and yes it was cold up there :)
Those who are still grounded in winter time with me, relax and think of season that is slowly coming.

Don`t mind of the ALS height I have made a mistake :)
