Kommentar

Dennis says, "95% of life is showing up." When I told Dennis on April 28 that "Minden will be the place to be"  he insisted that we go for it so he gets the credit for this one.

The day played out pretty much as forecast.  Turned in the north when we got to an undercast and in the south when it got soft.  Generally good markers.

On Leg 6 we had to pull the spoilers to dive under an overcast layer at Minden. A foehn gap subsequently opened at Carson City so we climbed up and headed to Stead where we again had to pull the spoilers to get under a cloud layer.

Landed at Stead in front of the Reno air racing grandstands ... a sobering place to end a spectacular adventure.

Had a Sage 2 clearance to FL 290 in R2508 (Thanks, Cindy).  On Legs 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 had a clearance from Oakland Center to FL230.
The DG has FAR compliant navigation, strobe, and landing lights.

Thanks to Laurie at Soaring NV, Gabe for the early tow, Doug & Andrew Armstrong for helping at Stead, Robert & Jackie for crewing.
