Comment

Not exactly the best of soaring days, but I'll take what I can get especially after not having flown in a month. Weak, unmarked thermals around 1 knot occasionally going over 7k. Easterly winds 5-10 knots aloft. Never went anywhere, just lots of weak thermal practice. Ended up thermalling a bit with CP in the single seat Blanik and a bit with some birds of prey. By 15:00 the lift was already shutting down but the easterly winds picked up just enough that the ridge lift on the Dogskins was just barely sustainable if you flew slow enough. I was hoping late to find lift on the sunlit western slopes of the Virginias as opposed to the shadowed E slopes of the Dogskins, but didn't have a lot of excess altitude to try once I got there and didn't find much of anything except sink.
Thanks to Gene as always for towing. Also thanks to my non soaring friend Mike who drove an hour from Reno just to give me a few minutes of derigging help (yes, the soaring community at Air Sailing is so pathetically inactive nowadays that the airport was completely deserted on a Saturday afternoon on the first soarable weekend day in a month at the oh so late hour of 15:30).
