Start 098 True Blue 5mi 4000'
075 Rockdale 15mi
087 Smithville 15mi
045 Independence 15mi
083 SCOH 2mi

Had a rocky start but the first leg was BRUTAL... Just barely went into Rockdale, turned just past Caldwell as the sky was getting really blue. The second leg was much better with good streets and much faster speeds. Found a good line all the way down to Smithville but had to dog leg to get into the back side of Smithville, near La Grange. Was slow finding a path but once I got going towards Independence, things got much better. Took a slow climb over Brenham to ensure I had final glide...rolled out 19miles out at even for final glide. Running across the river, kept going faster but finding lift in the blue, too. Finished fast but 1100' high...shame! It was a fun flight and never really got too low but wish I had pushed harder early and shifted into high gear later but I was rattled about how the first leg had gone. Wish I could fly tomorrow or the rest of the week for the Region 10 contest but...
