The forecast was for a great day, that would be blueing out from the south west. First turnpoint Ban Ban crossing. I had never been that far north, the clouds and climbs were great. Next turnpoint was Roma(again). Cloudbase was just going up and the highest I got was 16,428ft according to my GPS. I made crossings over huge forested areas that I never thought possible. Unfortunately, just after Miles it was blue. I tried for 60km in the blue but it was slow and unreliable so I turned 90km before Roma back towards Toowoomba. There were some good climbs in the blue but it is much more a gamble so average flying speed drops. The next cloud was actually almost at Toowoomba and the smoke from the fires behind the range was thick. Probably no flying from Boonah.
I ended up with my longest flight and highest ever. I think that if it hadn't turned blue a 1000km was certainly possible. What an amazing day.

For some reason the olc doesn't record the first part of the flight,will have to re upload from my S100
