What an interesting day! Day started quite early and strong. We first flew to the NE and afterwards we were heading again to the Kalahari with nice clouds :) Although some big storm developed in the West - we were able to easily fly up to 100km from Douglas. Closer to Douglas more storms were around, and in the end we had to cross a smaller storm to reach Douglas. Closer to Douglas we encountered another storm which was 20km from the airfield, with a very unstable airmass which in the end pushed us up with 12m/s....a bit too much so we turned to find a better spot to fly to the airfield and used full brakes from almost 4000 MSL to land. Interesting day! Up to the next! Day 6/12 and again 1000km; without the storms over 1200km would have been possible again.
