    And, the day after Thanksgiving was actually a decent fly day.

    The RASP looked good and the mountain web cam confirmed it would be a good day. The cu were bright and beautiful looking. Granted, they weren’t that high above the ridge lines, but they were clear markers.

    i saw Alex-4B launching and checked OLC this morning to see how it went.
    Congrats to Alex on accomplishing a safe and successful thermal flight on a day when the sun is so far south of the equator.
    Well done!

    Ha! Thanks Peter. "thermal flight" is a very generous description of my desperation hanging on at cloud base for 45 minutes There was an interesting cu marked convergence shelf right over walker ridge, that had surprisingly strong climbs throughout the 400 foot tall working band!
    Friday was as much about taking the airplane out of the box for the first time in a month to take some tows, as it was a somewhat interesting forecast for the last sunny day in November...
