300k+ pre-declared triangle (Bighorn Mountain, Mt. Sherman, Lookout Mountain, Bighorn Mountain). Took me three attempts to round TP1 (Mt Sherman - one of CO's 14ers). Then I took the hard way to TP2 (Lookout Mountain, W of Ft. Collins) - flew on the west side of Divide where the 20+kt wind blew up the thermals, instead of flying the perfect line along the lower foothills - if this had been a race this is where I would have lost it for sure... Weak climbs and strong sink in-between with a lot of wind drift at each climb. After rounding TP2 I finally found out how easy the day could have been - straight cruise for 40+ miles without losing altitude. I did make my final TP with enough altitude to qualify for Diamond Goal again. Oh and I bagged five Forteeners: Quandary Peak, Mt. Lincoln, Mt. Democrat, Mt. Cameron, and Mt. Sherman. And I made it back to Boulder :-)
