Default First Step is a Doozey

Shot at Torrey Pines Gliderport-LaJolla, CA. A unique spot in the San Diego area-they all wait for the "thermals" and the inevitable sea breeze. Takes a lot of intestinal fortitude to walk off a 200-0 cliff. These guys are good.

You can take a tandem ride for $175 lasting about 20/30 min-not for me.
Free spirits in LaJolla-lots of surfers also

K5iis is quite a bit heavier than my Ist DS. At my age (67) takes a little time to get used to it. Part of the package from B&H was a battery pack-holds (6) AA batteries-can't imagine how heavy it would be with that attached. Think it would be easier to buy an extra battery-easier to bring with you.
