Back in the States

Well, shortly after getting to Tannheim yesterday Michelle called to tell me my Grandfather had passed away. So I'm back in the states (Philly airport) to attended to somethings and help my family out.

On the flying front, the boys had an "epic day" (their words) today at Tannheim. Tomorrow looks to be even better but there is rain in the forecast for mid week. I'm debating flying back over on Wed to finish out the final 4 days of the trip and try to get some flying in Depends on how I feel once I get things settled with the family. I've spend 27 of the past 48 hours on airplanes or trains, so I'm exhausted and still have a 2 hr flight home. ugh.

Addict 2 - Flew it

Wow. Finally flew the A2 today. Love this glider. You know how on some gliders you can be ahead of the glider, it just doesn't react to what you want it to do fast enough? Or how on others it gets ahead of you and you are chasing the glider to keep it where you want it? Well, with the Addict 2, Ozone nailed it, right in my sweet spot. The glider and I are in perfect harmony. It seems to know what I want to do and reacts perfectly. It wants to turn into the thermal. It doesn't want to get pushed out. It wants to go up.

Plus, it feels rock solid. More like a 1/2 than a 2. Maybe it's because I am so in tune with this glider. I typically keep a 1/2 glider in my arsenal for those days that look squirrelly but with the A2, my 1/2 gliders are now up for sale.

I'll write a full review soon, but Dave and Robbie really nailed it with this one.

(btw, the A1 is sold. Stinky bought it)

Got my Addict 2!

Received my new Addict 2 today. The custom color scheme looks really good. I can't wait to fly it. BTW, anyone wanting a good deal on a 1 year old Addict 1, drop me a note.

Grant Turns 1

Today's Grant's first birthday. He had his first trip with Chucky Cheese with big sis Sophie and cousin Jack and loved it. Slides are fun!

Lord Stanley's Cup

We had some leadership training in Tronto this week for work and the second night they surprised us with an event at the Hockey Hall of Fame. We had the whole place rented out, had dinner in the Hall of Records, and then got to hear Jimmy Craig (goalie from the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team) speak. Was a great event and Jimmy Craig was phenomenal. Yes, that is crappy cell phone pic of THE Stanley Cup.

Ozone Releases the Addict 2

Ozone just released the Addict 2, the follow-up to the Addict that I currently fly. New color scheme, comp lines for the uppers, and supposedly better performance and handling. Mine is on order now.

On a related note, anyone want to buy a slightly used Addict 1 for a great price? If so, please drop me an email.
