It is only the second day of 2005 and I have had my first hg-drive – going out without flying. It was very strong wind during the night, but both Norwegian weather forcasts promised less wind and perfect conditions for ridge soaring at Sundvollen today (Sunday). Unfortunately, the weather men (and women) all had been infected by weather demons, and although the wind direction was perfect conditions were way too strong. So Terje B, Terje S. Petter, Rolf and Jan from Lier HGK, and I just had to drive home without flying. Still, Terje S., Petter, and I got ourselves coffee and cake at Vik and talked a lot of hg-bull shit. All in all, not totally wasted day.
