Home Forums Pilot Reports Thursday April 11 – Warm & High

    Nice warm temperature today and high altitudes (I heard of 12k). There was mention that Owen did his usual out-and-return (HG) to San Gorgonio.

    After launching Marshall at 4:22 pm (it got windy there soon after), I almost sank out but found a good one at “Last Chance” then up to 8k in one climb. Not wanting the altitude to go to waste, I started going East, reached Mt Harrison and partially returned. Thanks to Forrest for the retrieve.

    Climbs were very smooth but on the weak and small side. Still, the weather was near perfect which made for really pleasant flying and allowed us a modest adventure to the east. Heard many others on the radio having their own fun.

    Echoing the thanks to Forrest for the retrieve – we packed up, got curbside, and he was there 5 minutes later. He had a cool rattlesnake story too.
