When you start hiking, you wake up quickly.
|I made a short detour for a geocache, so Bronco and Nada patiently waited for me.|

|I found a nice spot for the take off.|
When you are clumsy.
2nd attempt was successful.
|My first flight in Romania.|
Bronco closely followed me.
|High above the ground.|
|Well Bronco, you will have to walk back down.|
|Towards Poiana Țapului.|
|Caraiman Peak also has a good take off site. Maybe next time.|
|Looking back to my take off site Furnica.|
Due to the strong valley wind I slowly advanced to the landing site.
|All done, time for a beer - Garmin Connect.|
On the way back we bought some fresh trout and back home, we put them on the barbecue.
|Happy chef is a good chef.|
|Analysing the clumsiness.|
