Comment

Was concerned with possible strong SW winds surface to 18K on western half of the flight. Well, it was a struggle until I got into the NM/CO airmass, then it was a beautiful flight. I climbed 3K+ straight ahead in the cloud street south of Farmington, NM...when I was on short final to Val Air's Durango Soaring Clubs beautiful grass runway, I noticed all of the sprinklers were on! It was a 21 gun salute :-)
Many thanks to my beautiful wife who chased me and got to the hotel 15 minutes after I did! She's the best :-)
