Tow is a Go!
Dmitry, David and I headed up to Sauk City Monday evening to try towing on a road Mariyan located on Google Maps. We were very pleased with what we found, 1.5 miles of empty dirt road surrounded by wide open fields. Best of all we discovered that as soon as you are about 200' up you can see the Wisconsin River! Which, as it turns out it just over the surrounding trees. So cool! Moments after Dmitry landed from the first flight one of the neighbors rolled up on his ATV with a big smile. As luck would have it, Joel is a ultra light pilot and he invited us to use his runway when we wanted to do some powered flying. Thanks, we will take you up on that soon! The boys were able to complete 7 tows last night to about 1,500' AGL (above ground level) with he conditions we had. When the wind lines up with the road more, last night was about 45 degrees off, we should easily be able to get over 2,500'.
