Thde swoose project never went away, I have been flying that one for a year but off of land. The guys at the dry lake finally decided to get into float flying, they waited until the summer was over of course. All I did was put the floats back on and wait until they said they were going out again. One of the guys has the rubber raft so I waited for him to go out.
That site is the old Boulder launch area. Just follow the road around ans not far past the camp site the turn off is on the right. You can driver right up to the water and get off loaded but they don't want you to park there, you have to park about 20 yards from the water.
Not sure how many people use it during the summer but when we drove back out the long way to get out going north there are a lot of places to fly from. This just happens to be a really good spot.
When they didn't think I was going to walk again and I was still in my chair I got one of those forever passes so it's free to get in, I'm sure you have one too. I was told, but don't know for sure that we can fly electrics off of Lake Las Vegas too?
Word went out that the lake bed was flooded so we fly the smaller planes at the Hemingway area right there on the lake. I went to see the lake bed and there was a lot of water on it but it isn't completely flooded, sure is a lot of mud though! I just heard the south end is OK and there is a small area right on the north end that the guys are flying the bigger planes on. That rain storm caught us all by surprise, all it will take is one good monsoon rain to fill the bed up enough to float fly from. I still have a pair of waders and I'm ready for it!!
I'm not going to fly anymore until after the first of the year and I get my eyes fixed. It hasn't been fun for a long time. I think I'm hooked on float flying though.
