With all the launches at Andy Jackson Airpark closed due to the El Dorado Fire, I jumped at David Webb’s invitation to go to Soboba today. It did not disappoint. 2 hour-and-16 minute flight with lift up to 705 fpm. Got to core a strong thermal with Jerome in locked and tight synchronization. What a rush! Maxed out at 4,439 feet and was rewarded with glass-off smooth figure-8’s all the way down to the LZ. What a great day!
