Comment

I declared a 550K out and back today but didn't make it. I took off real early with lots of Cu. The thermals were strong but bases were low, and like most of the day, the good thermals were not the quickest to find. Adding to the struggle, was the fact that the clouds were much farther apart than they should have been for the altitude I was getting. Anyways, Joe and I kept chugging away to the WNW and I got lower than I would have liked a few times, especially when pretty far from home. There were no real energy lines and I made a few mistakes so I felt way behind to complete the task. I chickened out and turned for home at 3:30 at 140sm out. The first hour coming back was gangbusters with a good energy line, but then things slowed down drastically the last 50 miles. Too much rain in Central Ohio lately. Still some strong thermals so I messed around a bit back home. Of course, knowing what I know now I think I could have made it. More days like this please!
