I didn't feel like I had good turning ability or flare in my last flight, so for today's flight, I had installed trimmer ratchets. I thought I had tied them off in the original positions and would be able to pull in line until I had them adjusted correctly. Apparently I was wrong! I took off fine, but noticed I had too much steering line pulled in and since I had tied a knot behind the ratchet, I couldn't let it out. It wasn't an issue though, I just landed and moved the knot back about 3 inches. It worked perfectly and I stayed up for 1.5 hours!
I landed about 5:20, with a sunset of 5:30, so I used all of the daylight I had. Did I say it was a great day?
I think Scott was trying to tell me he was cold!

You can see some deep ruts worn by the cows.
This was a cool photo. To the right was a house, to the left was a pile of junk. I wanted the reflection of the windmill, so I took a photo in the middle!
