It shaped up really nicely later in the day. Launched then landed Marshall Peak after 2:06 hours and 19 mi along 3 turn-points. It’s time to re-think when to run the shuttle on days that are forecast to be gusty mid-day.
Side note: Had solo student launch 6pm or so. I had walked down to launch first, unhooked and got him launched. Went to grab my glider and spotted a little rattlesnake right there next to the base bar. It was coiled up and managed a little strike as I picked up the wing but he couldnt reach far enough. Warm spring weather brings out the snakes so watch your step.
