DSC members, our flying world. Map?
As you may know Mark has taken to going to Paraglide in India in winter. Unfortunately he will miss my DSC weather talk on the 12th Feb. He graciously emailed me to say he could not make the talk. this is my reply.
What I was hoping to do after the Talk was find some way for our members like you, to share there exploits and knowledge with the other DSC members.
Something like this list with may be placed marker on a world map.
e.g. Mark India= (site or sites) Time of year=(20th Jan to 20th Feb) weather=(five great days) Ridge soaring coastal=(20 h) Ridge soaring Hills=(20) XC=(hills, flat lands, mountains) O/R (20-50 km) Best Triangle=(60 km) usual triangle (30 km) Guide or unguided? Hospitals= (issues with rescue) smooth days=(2) rough days(2) other act activities not flyable=(bars and local fun, sailing? Normal cost to get there=(£200) cost of weeks stay=(£100) cost of other entertainment=(£100) cost of Guiding=(£100) quality of guiding out of ten=(6) video=(link) I am sure you are having a good time.
May be some member out there (Tommy) would be up for refining this idea for our forum?
The DSC would then build up a real pilots view of the paragliding world that is out there for them to try.
This is good for Thermal technique.
