Sunday on the Ground (+0
November 23, 2008: Migration Day 38
winds are out of the south and the headwind aloft would be 25 miles
an hour! They're staying on the ground today. Operation
Migration's Liz Condie gives this heads up for a flyover viewing opportunity!
the hope that the improving weather forecast holds, we thought
we'd better get the location for a potential flyover
viewing opportunity posted. We've found what we think might be
a good site for folks to gather to view the cranes and planes
when we depart Piatt County for Cumberland County.
It is at the on westerly edge of the town of Milmine at the intersection of 22
(Milmine Road) and Bodman, just before crossing the railway tracks. We suggest
you use MapQuest or GoogleMaps to come up with driving directions to it from
your home location.
"Remember - safety first. Please park your vehicles well off the road and be
respectful of private property. You will want to be on site by sunrise - approximately
- and dress warmly. Also remember, that you could make the trip for naught if
conditions are such that the cranes and planes are unable to fly.
"Assuming we can fly, there will be a crew member at the viewing site to meet
and chat with those gathered, as well as offer those interested an opportunity
to purchase some OM Gear."
