Pretty good day. Cus started popping before 11:00. Launched shortly before noon, all watered up. Initially headed south hoping to do a big triangle, once I got to Hillboro, the cus were pretty sparse, so decided to go west instead, but eventually decided to go southwest. Getting to Burnet was pretty good, although it got somewhat weak by Lampassas. Shortly before getting to Burnet, it got really good with strong lift up to 7000' and good lines of cu. Decided I wanted some more distance after coming back to TSA so decided to go to Corsicana. Up to about Bardwell, the cus were just a bit sparse, but the lift was strong. In typical fashion for Corsicana, it was a giant blue sink hole. Got down to just a bit above 2000' when I started working a 1 knotter out of desperation and dumping my water. That 1 knotter eventually became 4 knots up to 5500'. Heading back to TSA again, the cus were sparse but I had plenty of altitude. By far my best flight this year, but that's not saying that much for 2014.
