Flying a Vans RV6 From Watsonville

What a fun experimental plane. And it was "positive-g aerobatic" so I got to practice loops, rolls and spins. Good times.

Arroyo Seco Hike

Hiking a river valley near UCSC where you had to spend a lot of your "hike" swimming up stream like a salmon. What a great way to keep cool and float along.

Rayleigh Sky

Up at Opal, I spent time making a video and an applied model for how the polarization of the sky works. It made lots of cool figures....

Petoskey Run

After a day of sailing, we took a run over to Petoskey for Joanna to do parade stuff. Nikki and I just hung out around town for a little while. It was really pretty to drive through summer corn country. Slept out on the pontoon boat under the stars....
