I won't be, so can you please leave me as custodian/guardian of your
glider? It would really help me enjoy the last 5 months of
civilization, and from the post-rapture weather predictions I've read
it sounds like the thermals will be GREAT! I'd really like to get the
paperwork settled before Saturday though, being the rapture and all.
It's not too late yet, and I promise to take really good care of it in
your absence. PM me for my details.

I'm just glad that most of the tow pilots I know will definitely still
be around so I can launch!

Retrieve crews will be gone, though...

Good point ... I need to dust off my One-Man Assembly Rig.

We've got everything under control at Blairstown. From
a posting this morning (stolen from somebody else, but
I wish it had been my idea):

End of the World Party - May 21

Let's see...task for day 1...turn area ...
Turn point 1 - erupting volcano
Turn point 2 - lava flow
Turn point 3 - tornado alley
Man, the lift is going to be off the charts!

Is the FAA going to open a rapture window to allow those being saved
to climb through 'Class A'? ...which also begs warning of pilots to
keep vigil. Rapturees may not be terribly concerned, but running into
one of them in your ship at high speeds while they are ascending will
certainly cause a problem. It'll probably be a good idea to check the
NOTAMS before launching.

A properly harnessed team of them may be able to provide a free tow as
well, although they don't launch till 6:00pm...

I'm going to take an early tow; this thing could go either way.

Anybody know whether it is EST or CST?
