    My copilot assured me he would be fine.

    Then as the tow rope is being hooked up, he did clarify "wait, where are the bags? Just in case..."

    Oh well.

    It was significantly weaker than I expected. Unfortunately only two gliders were up ahead of us. One was doing ok at 2000agl and the other ended up returning to land right as we were hooking up. But I'll definitely be more patient and launch into stronger conditions when I take the first student up again.

    Peter, Very nice job on the "permanent" web page and thanks for including the graphic from OLC showing the altitude graph. I have edited my first post to include an altitude graph I copied from SeeYou with some added information.
