1.5hrs – I went to Burnt to Upper Rabies then crossed to OFF-RG and then dug out low to get to Longsword. I had a 40% assymetric at 5.2K’ above Burnt ridge. That is a convergence area and can be bumpy. The Iota2 handled it well, I had to brake an assymetric surge but the collapse popped out fine.

The time window for the clinic is working out well. I launch around 11am and like that it is before the stronger afternoon winds. The top comp pilots are talented, I think they can push 15mph faster than my wing, and have less sink.

1.5hr XC south down Applegate valley, was trying for Applegate Lake but ended up short. When I landed one neighbor drove out to give me a bottle of water, and the other offered me a ride to the main road, and we talked about his vineyard (Cowhorn label, need to buy a bottle!). 2 cars stopped on this small road and offered rides. Very friendly here.
