Season opener – Liukuei

Les in Liukuei

Les in Liukuei

Finally a cross-country flight to Liukuei. A couple of weeks ago I made it to Tajin but for me, the season hasn’t started until I drank a beer in Liukuei.
It’s also the first time in a long time since I flew to Liukuei on a blue day, not always the easiest of tasks. There were about 20 pilots from Japan around who made the job of thermal hunting a little easier. Still, it was a pretty slow and painful job to get there. Liukuei now has a small park near the red bridge at the north end of town, by the river, which makes a very good landing zone.
Once Jaco arrived (in my car) to collect me I realized why the other pilots has all turned around at Tajin and headed for home. The road between Tajin and Liukuei makes a motocross track look like a pool table. That nasty fine clay from the typhoon floods makes horrible sticky mud.
