Very nice day on the Appalachian ridges. Tried wave and fell out in the morning. Decided to poke along Blue Mountain until Hawk. Hit an honest climb and then I clicked on! Transitions were tricky, but there was plenty of energy in between. The Masanutten was a blast. Coming back got tricky... the wind shifted to 250, so I transitioned to thermalling. Got back on the ridge on Dickeys Mtn. Really messed up the jump onto the end of Shade (Gobbler's Knob). Had my hand on the gear handle and was about 20ft away from dumping into a field off my left wingtip. Got lucky on that one... The rest of the run up to the front ridge was no problem, but not fast enough. I couldn't hook a climb to go into the plateau and it being 4:15pm, I decided to bag it and go home. Thermalled from Knauff's place to Snyders and then a fun ride on Blue Mountain. Really gorgeous day with lots of interesting challenges thrown in. Thanks Aaron for towing and Aero Club Albatross for letting me fly this wonderful bird.
