Comment

The day seemed uncertain because there were weather systems north and south covering NW MN and SE WI, throwing off cirrus. But there was an alley from SW-ern WI to NE-ern WI that looked fairly clear in the AM, and visible motion satellite images seemed to indicate the alley might remain clear. And it did.
Off somewhat late, at 1330 local, due to the usual multiple factors, winds light and variable but easterly. Still no GPS connection to my SN-10, so no final glide calculations or navigation, but hey, we weren't born with a gps in our hand, were we?
Beautiful day, markers everywhere; light winds, lift NE side of cu at first, SW side later, rarely sucking air up the middle. Cloud base at first about 4500 msl/3500 agl, increasing as I flew SE to about 7000 msl, then as I flew north quickly down to 6000 msl. An easy day. I quit at 1700 local due to physiologic factors and the fact the triangle was complete.
