Hope all went well and that you all had a safe journey. I'm sure we'll hear from everyone when you get used to the time change again.

You're not kidding there, that's yet another reason why I'm stoked for Wildwood! But that's on another topic thread... :?

Japan was an absolutely great experience! I'll do a more detailed post tomorrow when I'm a bit more awake but, we're mostly all home and happy. I could sit here all day and talk about how great Japan's Rev community is, they REALLY made us feel welcome.

Megafly-wise, we got up to 36 flyers and managed to play around with Felix's grid idea for a bit though low winds at the time made it tricky to keep up. But, its going to look great at Bristol, its a great way to run a megafly. And well, having Felix around for the weekend was worthy of many smiles too!

And this hilarious picture, a composite of oke of Aki Odagawa's pictures and a special guest :

Hi to one and all,
Wow!.
Back already what a whirlwind. Just got up and slightly disorientated. Left Japan at 605 pm May 6th , arrived in US at 430pm May 6th.
Must do washing. Will post more when my head is straight. Wait until you see the Tokyo waterfront fly. Great fun.
Many thanks to Revolution , Drachen and the JKA for making this happen.
The boys are off to Grandhaven in a couple of days. I get a break for a week when it's time to get wild in the Hood. Yehah!
