    Monday Soaring

    Today was unusual for January 16. I released at 6K a few miles east of Walker ridge and found a thermal to 7k over the ridge, went to the gold mines where there was not much and then found another thermal southeast of Bear valley. Rumsey gap was not working, so I returned to the previous thermal and then back to 7K over Walker ridge. I made to the top of Goat and then proceded north of Snow and then returned to Goat and then back home. I could have flown longer, but my feet were cold and I did not have my gatorade bottle with me. Obviously it was post frontal instability but I cannot remember ever having a flight like this during the winter.

    Luke,
    Nice flight. Aren't we lucky to be able to fly in the middle of January! Interesting path you were able to fly. Thanks for posting the IGC file.
