Comment

SkySight.io was slightly pessimistic, as usual.
Winds west at 10 kt at all atlitudes
Sky *mostly* blue, but enough wispy markers to be encouraging.
The Oudie prematurely declared a start, so I forged ahead and gradually increased altitude on successive thermals all the way to my first turnpoint.
From LUM (Menomonie) to past RGK (Red Wing) the soaring was all blue. Near Stanton, clouds were numerous and work was easy.
But the task was KLUM-6MN7 (Sodbusters) - KONA - KLUM, and from Sodbusters to Winona was all blue.
Then of course, there was the jump over the river... It's not the width of the river, it's the downwind thermal-killing effect of water. So I flew a few miles east into WI to terrain that looked lift-producing, and after tanking up, headed north, where there were again some markers, which I no longer needed.
Today was at least a 6-hour day. 250k was pessimistic of me, but the parachute hurts my shoulder blade.
