I did try to fly one last flight this year. Some Y2K issues kept me at work for a few hours longer then I had hoped for, and when I came up to take-off it was blowing over the back and getting dark. Sigh.
Tomorrow is another day, so I’ll try to get the first flight in the new year here. (The forecast is not good, but who cares)
Happy new year!
Happy new year to all my readers, may it be full of good flights!
New images submitted by Bjørn Hammer in the gallery. Great pictures from the season, check it out!
Oh yeah, it’s still snowing…
Polls! All other sites have ’em, so I had to add one here as well. It’s up to you dear surfers – let me know what you think about the poll window. If I continue it will be questions like “What glider”, “PG, HG, Both?” “Personal best”, and so on.
It’s snowing outside, and a strong low coming in from the west, no flying.
Hang Sim demo available at http://www.wilcopub.com I have the previous version, and it’s great. This looks even better, check it out, it’s a 12 MB download.
Finally I’ve finished all the results from the season. Go to http://www.nak.no/hp/sider/Komiteer/KK-HG/ (Norwegian) and check out the ranking for 2000.
Yesterday evening I ordered a brand new hangglider for the first time i my life, it felt good. A Moyes Litespeed of course, white and blue. Mylar and the FAST speedbar. I also ordered a Moyes Contour harness, expensive but worth it (I hope :-))
Erik’s back on line! He’s got a new laptop, and is updating the diary now. Check out http://home.c2i.net/erikv2/evic.htm
Garmin is updating their GPS range, the new GPS 12 MAP looks very interesting for HG/PG pilots. If anyone have a link to a review le me know! Check out http://www.garmin.com/12Map.html
My car was stolen, so I can’t transport my hangglider to go flying until I’ve got a new car. It’s been bad weather lately anyway.
There’s a few new pictures from Sundvollen in August. Check out the gallery.
My Moyes CSX 4 is for sale, NOK 19.900,-
1 year old, carbon speedbar, mylar, race wires, white blue and yellow, very good condition. Pictures in the gallery.
I’m going to Australia in February, I’ll get a new Litespeed there.
I’ve converted the results from the Norwegian hanggliding championships to html. You can find it at http://www.ellefsen.net/nm

I’ll be off working in Bodø next week, so I won’t read my mail for a while.
