Considering that it is November the forecast was good.

Went north first because it was totally blue to the south. Had good markers and good run north until it became undercast. Going back south our timing was excellent as small clouds kept popping to guide us to Mammoth, after which it was blue. The rest of the day we had spectacular clouds from Mono Lake to the north. Ran out of daylight. See Jackie’s blog at https://soaringblog.tumblr.com/post/167499390843/sierra-autumn-wave-at-200-kph

Had a Sage 2 to FL290 inside R-2508 and clearances up to FL230 from Oakland Center between Minden and R-2508.

Thank you, Alan, Reba, and Jackie for helping rig; Stefan for the early tow with a SoaringNV Pawnee; Cindy for the Sage 2: Joshua & Oakland Center for the ATC support; and Jackie for crewing.
