Pretty good day. 15 knots of S wind. Cloud base at 10.5k early, 13.5k late. Had to fly dry as my water meter is flaky piece of garbage and didn't wanna fly with an unbalanced load. Initially wanted to go east well into Arizona, but by 13:30 there was already some mild blow up there, so followed the streets lining up parallel to the Colorado river SSE. Air was pretty dead over the Colorado river in places and some other valleys, so had to be strategic about when to cross. Close to Mt. Charleston it was bluish, becoming completely blue further west but there was still great lift even in some blue late afternoon sky. The Ventus just did not want to come down after turning Mt. Charleston as there was lift everywhere so stretched out to Cima Lot for more OLC distance and still did 120 KIAS to bring her down the last 20 miles or so.
