Cinco De Mayo Short Flight

Took off Just before Granger but did not find a strong enough thermal to stay up.  Its definatly all about the timing.  I waited to make the turn to take off until I felt the wing try and lift me off the ground. Thought I had hit it perfect but the thermal diddnt last.  Got a few small bumps on the way to the LZ but nothing sustained.  Every flight is a learing experience. Take note of all the indicators during your flight to learn and improve.

  1. Always a tough call to fly away from the Mt. to find a thermal or stay close enough to get some figure 8s in at first. Then ?? Any way always good to
    get up there.
