Mediocre wave day with some strong spots in the late afternoon. I was up for over 6 hours and did the Heavenly/Susanville out and back milk run twice, so I did get some respectable distance. The day had plenty of lenticulars, rotor cus and Foehn gaps to mark the way. Later in the day, there were some stacked lenticulars. Never go remotely low or stumbled into sink I couldn't get out of pretty quickly. Getting into the wave was remarkably easy, it set up right over the southern half of the Dogskins and took next to no time after launch to get into it. The initial patch of wave was pretty strong and I climb up to 16k pretty quickly. The forecasts called for weaker winds down south and that's what I found as I had to fly slow just to maintain my altitude downwind of the Tahoe Rim Trail ridge on the first run. Some times the Air Glide said the winds were less than 20 knots. The air by Honey Lake wasn't a whole lot better, the winds were stronger but the WNW winds didn't mesh too well with the NW/SE Diamond mountains. On my second run, around 15:30 the winds picked up considerably and running downwind of Lake Tahoe was working like gangbusters with 40+ knot W winds and I could comfortably run at over 100 knots. The second run by Honey Lake was again mediocre going north, but was strong enough going south that I had trouble coming down on my final glide. Tomorrow looks even better, hoping to do a spectacular flight tomorrow!
