Comment

Short O&R in fair to poor thermal conditions. Blue day up to Switchbacks and return working east facing ridges 7.5-10k msl. Cu started on Sierras from Mt Whitney north, but I decided not to press the day too much. My high point was 11k msl over Owens Peak just NW of Inyokern. Flew back from Switchbacks (ridge SW of Lone Pine, California) with Britton Bluedorn "BB". We were pretty much even all the time 9-10k along ridges. It's amazing how a couple of trial turns to find a thermal puts one behind... 1.6sm ... in this case with "BB". Caught up with him a short time later when he turned :)
