Should read “babtism of ice”. Back 24hrs from 30+ degree heat, palm trees, white sand between the toes and the odd cool beer to a chill factor of minus god knows what and two good flying days.

The BBC are here next Friday and they are particularly interested in bungy launching as part of the theme of their program. The wind is forecast to be too northerly at the moment, however should it change to a more favourable direction it would be great if we can get enough people to pull a bungy rope. So if you think you can help let me know and I will blog on Thursday to say whether it’s on or not.
