A very interesting day with many junctures and surprises including the landout, with the skying falling apart rapidly after heading west from Delta, only to gracefully struggle to landing in a paddock 1 1/2 miles short of the Garrison strip. I walked to a nearby farm house to get a ride to the Garrison strip, where I was picked up by some flying over from Ely in a powered aircraft for the quick ride back to Ely before dark. Beer and Brats tonight and to bed early for an early trailer retrieve tomorrow morning. The landout was full landing flap, and 100' from the first wheel mark in soft dirt to a full stop facing backwards in a whirl of dust and dirt to avoid a barbed wire fence 70' from where I stopped. It's amazing how short one can touch and land this glider! The glider is just fine, but needs to be washed and cleaned after the dust bath whirl of a landing.
GOD is good, GOD is great!

With interest email me at craig@craigmelvinarchitects.com and I will return email photos or the landout when I pick it up tomorrow morning.

Kind Regards,

Craig
