I ran out of gas a few miles from home so I took M’s motorcycle to the RV, filled it up, drove back, siphoned gas into my motorcycle, and then we drove back to the RV.  I launched flight 132:

Winter 2020 Trip, Day 26: Salton Sea, Day 8

Shabbos at the Salton Sea worked out alright.  The meals I made were tolerable, and in the morning I saw a home-made hot-air balloon launch, as well as dozens of PPG flights throughout the day.

M did his first tandem flight this morning!  I launched flight 129:
