After flying Monday I enjoyed some of the new shade at the north end of the structure


Owen Morse, Tim Ward, and a couple of others were supervised by architect Jai Paul.


Jeff Bether at Crestline.


400-1000 fpm thermals (as much as 1,400 fpm) and numerous climbs to 6k and 6.5k. Strong sink in many places; got to 6k at Regionals and arrived at Crestline below the ridge, for example. Flew out to Kendall Hill,  ready to land,  but was zero-sinkin’. Thermal west of the lz took me back to the 750. Found sink in the canyon and landed into light W.

Thanks for the ride,  Dan!
