Well, no Costalucco yesterday- we are having some difficulties getting organized on some fronts. But Lisa and I did head to the "free" swimming hole the meet organizers arranged for us at the local camping grounds. Turns out the women who run the place thought that the swimming was not available for pilots, just meet organizers (?) and gave us a little hassle. Lisa thought 'coif' meant 'hair tie' and jumped into the pool (no diving unless you are the lifeguard or his friends or just Italian) and almost was asked to leave since she had no bathing cap on... .well... So later we headed to Perugia to get dinner, walk the downtown area and indulge in some of the cioccolato the citta is famous for. It rained hard when we returned to Sigillo, and just this morning we had insult added to injury when we found that the French team enjoyed great flights at Costalucco yesterday- and called it the most beautiful place on earth... I would post some pictures IF I HAD BEEN THERE!!!! Okay, so no flying and I am just a weeeee bit frustrated. But today we are headed one hour away to go fly. Everybody has been rounded up and it looks like nothing can deter us from our mission. If anyone sees my kids, tell my daughter to stop smoking pot, and my son to quit stealing beer, and my boyfriend to HANG IN THERE!!!!!
More later.... (P.S. the meet starts tomorrow.)


  • Good luck!

  • Castelluccio di Norcia, Linda, that is the right name ... and it is very beautiful to see and to fly.

  • Linda - post as often as you can. I know it's the last thing you want to do after a long day, but there are those of us over here who have no idea how the US team is going.
