Good day in the wave. Blue, 30-40 knots of SW winds aloft, not terribly strong at mostly 2 knots or so with occasional patches of 4-5 knots and as forecast was better up north than south. Got off on the far side of the Dogskins, Ridge soared to get my first 1000' off of tow and thermalled the rest of the way right into the wave right on the north end of the Dogskins. Probably the easiest time I've ever had entering the wave. Unfortunately the wave seemed to quit around 13k or so I dove upwind to find the next wave and lost 3k-4k of altitude in the process. I ended up in the west side of the Peterson Mountain where with a little effort I found another wave, zig zagged back and forth to get a little altitude and started heading north. For the most part thing were smooth going and I tried to stay between 16-17k with moderate success. After rounding a bit west of Susanville I headed S. After passing Slide Mountain the wave was barely strong enough to keep me flying level at minimum sink and with the southerly component my ground speeds were just pathetic so I turned back north. Made it to Susanville again and back pretty easily. I left Susanville very high just in case and ended up hitting a lot more lift than sink on the way. Once I got below 10k the air was so rough I had to slow down to avoid tearing the wings off and made it back to Air Sailing with 1000s of feet of excess altitude. And to think, I almost committed the mortal sin of actually going to work today.
