    That's a bummer, but stuff happens. I had to repair my wingtip last year. There are worst things that can happen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z5O87-Ib7Y

    Too bad it will prevent you from going to Dead Cow. I went there in 2019, it was a lot of fun.

    I saw big gash in wing fabric repaired by stretching Oratex fabric over it. n hour or so later it was back in the air. It’s probably still there a couple of years later.

    It is. Forgot you were here when he did that. He now has a gravel bar named after him.

    sierrasplitter, hope your damage isn't to bad.
