Because Chehalem is on the way to Petersons for me, I am going to stoop there at about 11 AM first and if it looks good go there. If not will head to Petersons.

Chehalem launch often socked in until noon during autumn ,  temperature and dew point are within 1 to 3 degrees of each other tomorrow which means launch will be socked in until after 1pm (or later).... However, l  like Chehalem  windspeed and direction so I'll try my luck to see if I can get a launch window at Chehalem tomorrow if Bob or anyone going.  Let's make final decision in the morning. 

Bingen and Yaquina Head south side also looks good too but l don't think anyone feel like hike and fly since there are more flying sites options for tomorrow. 

Chehalem Dew Point from Accuweather look better than NOAA

Around 11 AM to noon cloud base rises quite a bit, temp goes up a bit too, wind looks decent, so yes, I will be at Chehalem right around 11 AM to look!

Eyes on the Peterson prize and hoping there's enough juice tomorrow . . . Decide in the morning.

Rick, Bob and I all flew hgs at Chehalem. It was strong and somewhat gusty, but fun.  Quite warm and dry for this time of year. Then we each hiked all the way up from Johnsons LZ.  No, I am not going jogging now that I am home.

Yes, great day at Chehalem.  Ray Berger and Ken Dawe also showed up on their trike and Swift Lite electric (motor off) soaring Chehalem ridge with us for a while . I launched first at 11:40am. Flew for 2.5 hrs. Maximum altitude 2,100ft . Will share video and photos later. We will call uber next time.

Rick mentioned that it's only $10. Split between 3 people? Cheap.

Great day after the rain yesterday. Rick is iron man. Bob and John need to lose some weight anyway. Next you'll be ordering Uber Eats on launch and LZ. Ray

Looking at your track log and watching you earlier, you really tore up and down the entire ridge. Thanks for the video. Probably blowing 20 at 2000, 30 mph at 3000 today. Landing back at Lenhardts was the hardest part because it got a bit gusty about the time I arrived. I was going 65mph downwind and only 38 or so upwind. Pushing out on ridge I could get her down to 17 mph. Fun day.  Ray

Just kidding. I think Uber is a great idea. I wonder how long it takes them to get out there to pick you up? Ray

I know you were kidding!
No idea how long, that’s why we walked that day since we were almost done breaking down when the idea came up. Interesting concept though, since we are very close to a populated area it may just come in handy.
 
Yesterday was a good day, at time a bit rowdy, especially right after launch, but once up a ways mostly smoothed out. Sailed way East on the ridge, never gone that far, almost above where 219 comes over. Going west was not as good, rather rowdy that direction it seems, big rotors coming from the south over the ridges in front in that area. Explored a bit trying to top land, tested the waters so to speak, got behind the ridge and into the expected down rotor. Was not too ruff but dropped fast, had to pull in hard just to get across the road in time to get over the wires by launch and was in rowdy air there for a bit. Decided because of the quick drop behind launch that going for the regular landing would be the safer bet. I landed in zero wind at the LZ, very lite winds low, did not hit any winds walking back up to launch until right below launch.
Over all nice!!!

In my experience, people outside of the city are into the gig economy like uber.  The density of willing drivers is probably lower, though. I definitely think it's worth a shot.  The hike up was difficult but great exercise.

The Chehalem fire from couple years ago clear out a lot of trees,  bushes,  .... etc which made hike up so easy from Chehalem Dr. intersection to launch. No bushwhacking required.

Yes, I remember hiking up 25 years ago, and it was harder then! I'm a lot older, but it was still easier this time.
