Flying to Mandi

Today I thought I'd video part of the drive up to launch - to give an indication of the steepness of the terrain:

I launched shortly after 12 and decided to head towards Mandi – a town about 45km south of Bir - I landed within about five kilometres of the "official" landing area - in a small paddy field, where a bullock plowman was chatting on his mobile phone!

Once again I was meet by a substantial "welcoming committee"!

The drive back was along about 75km of twisting mountainous roads, and took longer than the flight!
