Interesting day with varied conditions. Kind of a late start due to lots of smoke in the Warm Spring Valley this morning and no cus popping till 12:30 or so. Lots of blow up was forecasted and lots of blow up was delivered by mother nature. First 20 minutes were pretty weak and I almost turned around for a relight. I did eventually find a 3 knotter that I took high enough to reach the cu field that was a bit SW of Air Sailing. I followed the cus north of Truckee where it was already starting to blow up by 14:00. I wanted to go to Blue Canyon, but just like every other time I've tried, once you pass toward the western half of the Sierras, the clouds disappear and the lift just shuts off. I could have easily made it, but doubt I would have made it back so I turned around about 10 miles shy. Found my next good lift by Nervino. Started heading NE where it was working fairly well for the most part. Past crossroads the cus became more sparse, the lift weaker and lots of thermals that disappeared the moment I turned into them, but there was enough weak lift all around for decent dolphining. I turned Winemucca which ended up being a giant sink hole, but I made back the altitude in a decent climb about 15 miles SW of Winnemucca. The way home had lots of isolated blow up, but the edges of the cells had good lift, so wasn't really a problem. Once I got back to the vicinity of Air Sailing, there was lots of virga right over the airport and it was looking kind of nasty. I landed in strong, gusty S winds, moderate rain and distant thunder.
