Hi Bob,

I see you mentioned the trip logs. We are definitely planning to provide links for all the existing trip logs here. I also have one of our summer interns on a project finding all the best "nugget" of information in the existing triplogs. We will be excerpting them as we post to the blog, which will help people find these useful planning aids.

Hi Bob, yes it is Jean, sorry for the name on my
profile, but I wasn't sure how to do it.
Hopefully in the near future I will change to
a shorter one. Yes I hope we will be exchanging
ideas and stories in the future. Jean and Fred

Bob:
Try sending a message to Marilee or Powen about the problem. I would send another invite, but the site says the invite was already sent.

Bill told me that you were having problems accepting all of our requests to have you as a friend. We're patient, and in the mean time we'll go the e-mail route.
When are you off for Switzerland? I didn't recall that you were planning another trip there this year.

Bob,

As I recall, you soared from Planplatten down to Meiringen. My wife Gail was going to do her first paraglide flight last year, but was grounded due to the weather. She will make another attempt via Birdwing this year. Any advice?

Hi Bob!
I'm so out of step with the technological improvements we have made that I can't even do the basics-- like find out what time period you are in Switzerland (In Sachseln, at the Greuterts--if I remember correctly. Can't query the computer, so I'm asking you, seated here at my table in the Untour Cafe. Hal

When you catch up, send news of the Greutert's and how your trip went. Cheers. Joan.
