Whining Bout Wind

For the past handful of launches, my level 3 flight plans have been grounded due to windy conditions.

Last month, I trekked to Plaster City with my young friend Jadan. He is an aspiring rocketeer as he received two rockets for Christmas.

Alas the wind was just crazy. So we ended up staying about an hour. Instead we decided to take the scenic route back to San Diego. This included a detour in Jacumba to check out In Ko Pah Desert Tower. More detailsĀ http://www.roadsideamerica.com/story/9178

Great view from the tower and very windy.

The fun part though was climbing the big rocks and exploring the nooks n crannies.

Despite the wind, the disappointment of not flying was dulled as we embarked on a spontaneous adventure.
