Awesome first day flying my Ventus at LVVSA. First time I've flown a glider on O2, above 13k, in Nevada, Arizona and California. Great cus at 13k-14k to the SE, blue to bluish elsewhere. Occasional lift damn near 10 knots. Getting to Lake Havasu and back was a snap. After getting back to Roach dry lake, I decided to head south, as there wasn't much cu to the west. After a while it kind of blued up there as well, 50 miles south of Jean in some horridly unlandable territory. Even though I was well over 10k I thought to myself, maybe I shouldn't be pushing that hard my first time out, so turned back at Kelso with about 35:1 to make it back to Jean. I slowed down a bit just to make sure the glide wouldn't be a nail biter. Before you know it, I'm way above glide slope and doing 110 to bring her down and still made it back above pattern height. I think I'm gonna like it out here.
