Nice ridge early on, ~ 90 knots at ridge top, but no thermals. Day triggered at Hawk Mountain, but the thermals were weak and low due to all the moisture. Thermalled through Sharp to Mahantango and dropped down. Ridge worked great in the higher part, but went soft beyond Pillow in the low part... climbed up and thermalled slowly to Tuscarora. Ridge worked well there and transitioned to thermals at Honey Grove to make the NNE run of the triangle. Several solid thermals, but then the day shifted at 2pm. I missed the change and tried to pick up a thermal on an intermediate ridge near Loganton. 8 miles along the ridge, under clouds and no joy finding a thermal. Doubled back when there weren't any more fields ahead and landed in the Loganton valley, in a cut hay field. Amish folks own the field and the whole family, 10 kids and more showed up to be introduced to the sport!

Thanks Rob for letting me fly your wonderful bird, Tommy for towing and Steve Beer for retrieving me! Thanks Aero Club Albatross for being awesome.
