I've never actually flown anywhere along the river or in the gorge
I've heard people mention Frenchman's Bar in Vancouver before, but have never there. Is that a workable alternative John?
Frenchman's bar is a nice place, but it is small, and they charge an entrance fee in the summer. There is a double soccer field up by the WSU campus in northern Vancouver that I've considered flying in many times. Only thing is that I don't know how the school would feel about having a bunch of kiteflyers show up, particularly when none are students...
