Comment

OLC day. Forecast looked like we'd have some good streets, oriented SW-NE. First leg went deep SW and was a really fun street with a tailwind. Computer showed 100 mph near the end before I got greedy and went about 5 miles too far and got low -- 110 miles downwind from home at 2300 agl, not too smart. Second leg went NNE and was a bit of a struggle. The plan was to retrace the 2nd leg on the 3rd leg and then come screaming home along that leg-1 street. That didn't work out. The clouds thinned out to the south so I cut the 3rd leg short to limp home with sparse clouds, but they still were strong and high. When almost home an E-W bonus street formed so I was able to add a few more miles. The lift stayed strong until late. Last climb was a little before 6:00 to 7500 ft at 4+ kts. The sky pretty much collapsed shortly after that. Nice day.
