Hobbs 18M Nats day 5. Tricky. 3.75 hr TAT. First turn was way North. Forecast promised 15k, maybe cu. First leg had cu but only to about 10 (6 agl - actually not all that bad), difficult to work. Just nicked the first turn where the cu thinned to almost none. Better cu back to the south. Good run south until reaching a storm. Getting around the storm not a problem but there was a big dead blue hole past it with good looking cu on the far side of the hole. I misjudged the size of the hole and didn't climb as high as I should have before crossing. Ended up at 2000 agl when reaching the far side. Struggled to get up but finally did. Different air mass, very strong climbs and eventually reached 15k. Decided to stay out an extra 30 min to run a street deep into the 2nd turn and then back to the north to the final turn area. Was able to run at 100+ kts for a long run using up extra altitude, resulting in a big jump in my ave speed after the low point at 2000 ft. One bad decision to not climb high enough before the blue hole really hurt. Fun day.
