Super Matevz! Hvala za izcrpno porocilo z zadnje etape in sprejema v El Calafate. Kot kaze, bo boljse vreme a polet nad ledeniki sele v sredo: http://www.smn.gov.ar/?mod=pron&id=4&provincia=Santa%20Cruz&ciudad=El%20Calafate No, tudi ce bo treba cakat do srede, v El Calafateju si v super druzbi, pa malo pocitka ti bo najbrz tudi koristilo pred Antarktiko in nato preckanjem Pacifika. Srecno!
 
Matevž Lenarčič   05.02.2012  21:55:01 GMT
Finally Patagonia!!! After 26 years I am just back to the place where I spent my most intense climbings summiting Cerro Torre and Fitz Roy with my friends Boris, Bogdan and Rado. Pleasant evening and dinner with mr. Smon and Bajda, slovenians from Mendoza got me back to hotel late, so some of my homework should wait for first weather brake. It is a long flight down from Mendoza along the Andes. Weather forecast whas not very good with strong westerly winds which usually bring bad weather to the mountains. Took off from La Putilla Aeroclub was almost without delay as I really got good support from the local pilots. My fuel tanks were not as fool I would like because the runway was quite rough for small wheels. The ground speed was very low right from the beginning so I soon decided after discussion with Domen, to stop in Neuquen for some reserve fuel as weather might changed the plans. Mid day in desert is turbulent anyway but with strong wind even more. After Neuquen the forward visibility dropped to zero due volcanic ash coming from Chilean volcano, so I climbed higher to get some fresh air. An hour or so later improved but Domen sent message via Iridium about some bad rainy weather in front of me and advised detour so south east. It was strange to me to find heavy rainfall in the desert so I just head south and soon found not so bad conditions and enough space between dark clouds and dry ground. More south sky got brighter so as able to climbed higher to avoid terrible turbulence. Right above me were long lenticularis clouds indicators of mountain waves which made flying challenging in strong down and updrafts. Crab angle of the aircraft was unbelievable, more than 35 deg. so I always looked at the scenery I didn't go. Mountains were hidden in the clouds so no need to circled for images. After almost 10 demanding hours I finally got Lago Viedma and Argentina in sight and approached - sideway to the new International airport named by legendary pilot Armando Tola. Final for runway 27 was slow as I had 35 kts into the nose. LAN Boing was waiting on holding and I just hopped not to crash in front of their eyes. Taxiing was demanding in gusting wind but soon Aeroclub pilots grabbed my wing tips and helped me inside Lago Argentina hangar. Pedro Skvarca, legendary slovenian, argentinian glaciologist was there with his daughter Carla and slovenian flag. He did so much for our project that my eyes got wet when we made a hug, argentinian style. He took care over me in Calafate so I feel like being home. I missed 10 days of good weather and land in the first bad one. The forecast is not very promising but lets wait and see. Keep your fingers crossed for some weather windows.

@Domen:Ali lahko navedete kam in kako bi lahko poklonili konkretno podporo projektu. Lepa hvala in srečno na vseh poteh koder leti, se vozi ali hodi vsa družba!
 
S5-Ivan   05.02.2012  20:52:54 GMT
Nobena zascita nas ne bo odvrnila od sledenja tej odpravi :) Admin, je res, da bo g. Skvarca sel leteti z Matevzem, tako kot pravi bolkaj?

OK. Spam smo rešili. Zdaj pa nekaj drugega. Danes je bila nedelja, pa sem v cerkvi nekaj denarja primaknil za stroške. Kaj pa podpora GLWF projektu? Nekaj je bilo govora o nekih prispevkih. Kako lahko to realiziramo? No pa seveda bravo vsi.

MATEVŽ: Veseli me, da boš na Virusa ob solo obletu sveta vzel na krov še Pedra Škvarčo - ali to pomeni, da bosta drugo leto letela okrog sveta ti in Ivo Boscarol na Pantheri ? Mogoče bi šlo celo s Panthero Hybrid ali Electric ?

Dear visitors of the Forum GLWF. We would like to let you know, that from the beginning we have tried to avoid protection of the forum. We know that this part of the entry is a bit unfriendly to the users. Due to massive congestion of "spams" we had no choice to protect the forum. We hope that this will not discourage you to support Matevž on his journey around the world.
 
Domen Grauf   05.02.2012  19:52:09 GMT
Spoštovani obiskovalci foruma GLWF, Radi bi vas obvestili, da smo se poskušali izogniti zaščiti foruma, saj je uporabnikom manj “prijazna”. Zaradi množične zasičenosti s "spam-i" nismo imeli več izbire, zato smo forum morali zaščititi. Upamo, da vas to ne bo odvrnilo od množične podpore, ki jo izražate Matevžu na njegovi poti okoli edinega sveta.
 
Denis   05.02.2012  19:00:29 GMT
Čestitke GLFW ekipi za ves trud in seveda glavnemu protagonistu. Slike kot "obicajno" - awesome.
 
Andrej iz Konjic   05.02.2012  18:57:29 GMT
Matevž, ko se vrneš na Senožet te vabim k Inotu v Dražo vas na kosilo!
 
Janez SLO   05.02.2012  18:50:23 GMT
Super ste. Delate na vseh področjih, borite se tudi proti tistim, ki bi nam radi prodajali to in ono... Ob tem pa ima Matevž vso podporo, ki jo potrebuje. Privoščim mu lepo vreme za prelet ledenikov. Ja, ja, držim pesti in prekrižane prste in kar je še takega... In brez kode teksta ni hotel sprejeti. DELA!!! Bravo!
 
S5-Ivan   05.02.2012  18:37:02 GMT
Cestitke za dodan captcha, upamo da bo pomagalo. Se enkrat cestitam Matevzu in PEZ-u, upamo na lepo vreme v prihodnjih dneh. Patagonski ledeniki cakajo, Antarktika pa prav tako! G. Skvarca je izjemen glaciolog, kot je Matevz izjemen pilot. Za sabo ima veliko odkritij na podrocju celinskega ledu v Patagoniji in Antarkticnih ledenikov. Seveda pa gre velika zasluga za organizacijo in resevanje birokratskih tezav Petri in Domnu, ki kljub napornemu delu tudi redno spremljata forum.

Check for the new photos in the NEWS section! And keep your fingers crossed for nice weather so that Matevž and Pedro could fly over the Patagonian glaciers! // Oglejte si nove fotografije v novicah. In držite pesti, da bo lepo vreme, da bosta Peter in Matevž lahko preletela PAtagonske ledenike !

Enjoy your saty in Calafate and do not missed a whisky whith glaciers ice in Perito Moreno. It is fantastic.
 
Domen Grauf   05.02.2012  17:28:22 GMT
Arrival in Calafate. Upon arrival in Calafate Matevž was greeted by Peter Skvarča. Peter Skvarča is the legendary Slovenian glaciologist in Patagonia and on the Antarctic, which is well-deserved for an exceptional reception in southern Argentina. We would like to thank him for the tremendous effort and friendly reception. Sincere thanks also to Aeroclubu Lago Argentina, Pablo Wyssu and Armando Tola International Airport, named after legendary argentinian pilot. Matevž is staying in Hotel Sierra Nevada, owned by Silvia De Bellini Tola, daughter of the before mentioned famous argentinian pilot. We also thank the Los Glaciares National Park, where they issued a special permit to fly over the glaciers.
 
Domen Grauf   05.02.2012  17:27:57 GMT
Prihod v Calafate Ob prihodu v Calafate je Matevža sprejel Peter Skvarča. Peter Skvarča je legendarni slovenski glaciolog v Patagoniji in na Antarktiki, ki je zaslužen za izjemen sprejem na jugu Argentine. Na tem mestu se mu zahvaljujemo za izjemen trud in prijazen sprejem. Iskrena hvala tudi Aeroclubu Lago Argentino, Pablu Wyssu ter mednarodnemu letališču Armando Tola, ki nosi ime po legendarnem argentinskem pilotu. Matevž prenočuje v hotelu Sierra Nevada, katerega lastnica je Silvia Tola De Bellini, hčerka prej omenjenega slovitega argentinskega pilota. Zahvaljujemo se tudi Nacionalnemu parku Los Glaciares, kjer so izdali posebno dovoljenje za prelet ledenikov. GLWF team

I am very sorry I didnt know about your flight and I missed you when passing for Mexico.
 
Mamo   05.02.2012  15:40:48 GMT
Do not forget to try a good Malbec wine in Mendoza and Calafate. Is the best wine in the world. Cheers.
 
Domen Grauf   05.02.2012  15:38:47 GMT
Pozdravljeni, nacrtovano je bilo letenje preko patagonskih ledenikov. Danes je vreme se vedno vetrovno z rahlim dezjem. Trenutno piha veter 48 km/h in onemogoca letenje nad izredno razgibanim reliefom Patagonije. Jutri je napovedano nekoliko boljse vreme. GLWF ekipa.
 
Primož Sev   05.02.2012  15:20:34 GMT
Pozdravljeni. Kaj se dogaja z Matevžem. Sodeč po vremenski karti j.Amerike je obtičal v El Calafate. Menda bo jutri lepše vreme.

StaneA   05.02.2012  12:21:55 GMT
Domen, to bi res preprečilo spam. Škoda, da to ni bilo narejeno že na začetku. Implementacija captcha po mojem ni komplicirano z uporabo php skripte, ki je vključena v glavno stran. Captcha po mojem mnenju ne bi smela biti preveč zakomplicirana zas zaćetek.
 
Domen Grauf   05.02.2012  12:12:10 GMT
@StaneA: ravno o "captcha" smo v timu danes zjutraj razpravljali. V kratkem bo to reseno.
 
StaneA   05.02.2012  11:58:54 GMT
Kar se tiče spam-a bi morala ta stran imeti dodatek captcha - preverjanje naključne kode pred vnosom! Upam, da bo skrbnik to kmalu naredil.
 
Bogdan   05.02.2012  10:23:49 GMT
Kar se tiče spama bi mogoče pomagala obvezna registracija s kontrolo e- poštnega naslova ob registraciji. Branje bi bilo še naprej na voljo vsem. // About spam - registration for those who want to post messages mighb be the proper solution. Reading would still be possible without registration.
 
Primož Sev   05.02.2012  09:33:36 GMT
Bravo Matevž. Zadnjih osem pik kaže na obupno borbo z vetrovnimi sunki.Upam, da sta jih oba preživela.
 
Poul Brandrup (Denmark)   05.02.2012  06:45:38 GMT
Hi Michael, I think it would be a good thing to stop the spam. It also appears that some messages my go lost. To my surprise some of my messages do no longer appear? It may be of no real importance, but still. I cannot imagine there have been problem with the content. In any case i am following this endeavour with great interest. And looking for the updates several times a day. So at the very least i hope the GLWF service will be able to keep that function on. Have a nice Sunday.
 
Michael Coates Pipistrel USA   05.02.2012  06:31:32 GMT
Wow, we need to work out some spamming software here, its a full page of trash today. Hard to believe they bother! Any way we can add spam protection to this page? Matevz, your going great! I am following you every day and can even feel the excitement growing on the upcoming crossing to Antartica myself! Like others I am learning so much about the countries you are visiting and have just done my research on Ushuaia... February has 20 raining days on average, hopefully the weather will cooperate for your visit. Fantastic Adventure!

Congratulations on another well completed leg of your flight. You show a remarkable tenacity in landing outside of your flight plan to take on more fuel. Nothing can surprise me anymore. I hope you will have a good night rest and look as always forward to having your account of Saturdays flight. All the best ....

Domen Grauf   04.02.2012  22:22:04 GMT
Ravno sva z Matevzem govorila po telefonu in je rekel, da je bil danasnji let izjemno turbolenten. Na pristanku je veter pihal 35 vozlov in je imel najvecje tezave z voznjo po tleh. Letalo so hitro pospravili v hagar lokalnega Aerokluba Lago Argentino. Oblet patagonskih ledenikov je odvisen od vremena. Lahko se zgodi, da bo cakal na primerno vreme tudi vec dni? Ekipa GLWF se zahvaljuje vsem, ki spremljate projekt GreenLight WorldFlight.

Nekaj novic iz domačih logov. V okviru zimskega izobraževanja smo se danes zbrali v brunarici na vzletišču Zg. Pobrežje čalni DLZSD in okoliški društev. Vsi zbrani, 22 po številu, z zanimanjem spremljamo tvojo pot. Glede na to, da počasi zapuščaš toplo področje se tudi mi solidarno pripravljamo na hladnejše dni, da bo potovanje s teboj preko spleta še boj pristno. Pri nadaljevanju tvojega podviga ti želimo čim manj padavin in ugoden veter z željo, da nam zadnje predavanje v tej sezoni podaš ti. Tema: Doživetja na poti okrog edinega Sveta. Mirno noč!

@spyDer: Hvala sem opazil, da Matevz ni rabil krozisca. Cudno mi je tudi bilo, ko pred hangerji na stezi stojijo vozila. Vazno da je Matevz pristal tam kjer je zelel in to varno.

@Denis: Danes dopoldan si gledal napacno letalisce (Lago Argentino Airport (ING/SAWL), ki ze od leta 2000 ni vec v uporabi in piste sluzijo danes kot ceste. Pravo letalisce Comandante Armando Tola International Airport lezi vzhodno ob jezeru in ima koordinate -50.28025, -72.053194. Bravo Matevz, skoraj si ze na cilju!!!
 
oto   04.02.2012  21:18:01 GMT
Matevž, zdaj si pa zaslužite kakšen dan ali dva počitka, drugače boste "pregoreli" od vsakodnevnih dolgih zahtevnih preletov,ki zahtevajo 120% angažiranost pilota. S svojimi uspehi nas vse "zanimajoče" razveseljujete in nam življenje delate lepše. Še veliko vstrajnosti vam želim, drugače pa celotni ekipi gre vse "dobro od rok".
 
S5-Ivan   04.02.2012  21:02:24 GMT
Iz skoraj tropskega Buenos Airesa do vroce, suhe in visoke Mendoze, pa naprej do "polarnega" El-Calafateja! Virus, Rotax in Matevz - zmorejo vse!
