Kommentar

Axiom for today: Never give up! Persevering yielded my farthest (1,072 miles) and longest (11.8 hours) flight ever.
Declared a 1,000 km O&R. Got an early tow from Bill Francis. Had good rotor cu at Mojave, otherwise mostly blue in the south. As forecast early winds in the south were on the light side and more NWerly than desired. North of Olancha winds were stronger than desired and way more NWerly so I turned near Big Pine. Lift was in unusual places. Went back south to Oso and restarted. Made a save at the Switchbacks. This time there were rotor cu that marked the lift from Big Pine to Mt Patterson so I pressed on. Return from northern turn was fast due to quartering tail wind. Did O&R at 106.94 mph to claim new US record.
Thank you, Doug Armstrong (for weather), Bob Ettinger (for the sailplane), and Jackie (for crewing).
