My blog went down just as the main flying season started, but nothing much has happened here in terms of flying. Actually I have only flown 3 flights in July, this must be an all time low for me. Still, I have one more week of vacation so I hope to get a few more flights next week.

Last week I flew for the first time from Flå, a new site Steinar Sverd Johnsen has explored and developed. This site seems very promising. Hopefully I will get a few more flights here this summer.

This blog was down because of a failed server harddisk. Should be OK now again. I’ve added a twitter feed in the sidebar.

Sorry for the downtime!
