Comment

Declared and completed 514km O/R, Dill Hill / Schulman Grove / Dill Hill.
Flew a bit further to get to some clouds N of White Mountain Intersection.
Had wanted to fly wet, but with the density altitude and busy towplane, didn't. Would have towed higher if wet.
Pulled the handle a bit low in the convergence between Mountain Valley and Tehachapi Muni, but it was really tough to climb in. Saved from pattern altitude.
Then one of the roughest thermals I can remember, S of the Bald Spot. For a few turns the averager was above ten while the vario swung off the scale at both ends. Eventually it settled down.
Mostly blue, but some clouds in a convergence near Horseshoe Meadows in both directions, a few on the Whites then some scraps in the "get home shear line" near the Rock Pile.
Lone Pine has a 5NM to 2000' AGL NOTAM, was being used as the base for a TFR W of Olancha. Smoky, but not a factor.
The SkySight forecast was spot on.
Dry.
