And then I flew back from Harris Hill. Took off a little after 3pm. Nice long summer day! Trouble was that the cirrus was building in behind me. When the sun found the outer bands, it made a really big impact on the day. Lift strength dropped 1-2 knots and the thermal reliability dropped precipitously. Tough going once on the ridge near Bloomsburg. The nuclear thermal (Ol' Faithful), while not all that strong, did the trick. Scratch and float from there and I got home.

Local ridge worked for a bit. Wind shifted to 350 @ 12 knots or so. Really beautiful scenery!

Thanks ACA for letting me fly this gorgeous aircraft!
