Another rain day

Today's flying was cancelled at the morning briefing, alas.

Pilots and crews took the opportunity to tour the local area. "Local" means something different in these parts. Here are the attractions:
CarlsbadCaverns69 miles
LubbockWWII Museum109 miles
RoswellFlying Saucers116 miles
About half the teams went to one of these places, and the other half seemed to be content visiting the Hobbs laundromat and movie theater.

A few of us drove out to inspect the condition of some of the abandoned and little-known airports around here. On the way back, Bob Epp stopped and gave us a lecture on oil wells.

Here's a blowup of the signs on the bobbing head thing...

It's good to know that glider flying isn't as dangerous as being a tour guide at an oil well.
