Comment

The original task route was Piperton, TN to New Albany, MS to Bolivar, TN to Holly Springs, MS and back to Piperton, TN. When I got down to Potts Camp, MS, I decided to turn around and fly all the way up towards Covington, TN. If the conditions looked good there, I would jump across the Mississippi River into Arkansas towards Cherry Valley, AR. If I could make it all the way to Cherry Valley I would receive the Arkansas Wanderer Trophy. Very tough conditions west of the river as it was totally blue skies until Crowleys Ridge in Arkansas. I could not fly straight to Cherry Valley, because of the Memphis International airspace, that's why it's a big curved line as I circumnavigated the Class B airspace.

Thanks to Jim Bob Slocum for towing me.
Thanks to Steve Vihlen for setting this all up.
Thanks to Nathan Lemmon for a sounds of excitement over the radio when I announced my intentions!

One of the best soaring days ever in my life today, despite 5 grueling hours in the cockpit with temperatures above 100 degrees.
