Turned out to be another nice SE ridge day. Turned on a bit later, closer to 2pm. Thermals were low, but consistent. The lift band was reinforced by the sun heating the front face of the ridge. After Wind Gap, the lift band was very nicely set up between 2100-2300ft. Every powerline, there was a 150ft gain... and this got me SW far enough that the wind kicked on. Around the Pinnacle, the ridge became a 75-80 knot ridge. Down at Swatara Gap, there was cirrus encroaching and it was too late and weak to fly the lower/crappier ridge ahead. Turned around and got a decent climb over Pinnacle. 80-knot ridge for the rest of the day, except by Cliffhouse where it got a bit softer. Turned out to be a much better day than originally thought! Thanks a million to Aero Club Albatross for letting me fly this wonderful bird.
