I've flown my Bixler here before and had a long walk of shame when I landed unexpectedly a hundred feet from where I was standing. The area is divided up by small channels, which have water in then even in summer.

So, while I was checking out the area this morning on Google maps, (the green dot is where I'll probably launch from)(the blue arrows show wind direction)

I saw this hilarious puddle waiting for and unsuspecting crash lander!

I searched Nacza Airlines but couldn't find them. And there's nothing on Google Maps maps view either.
