Nearly all you could ask for

Most people went to the big party at Morningside, but a few of us dodged the crowds and made the trek up to West Rutland. Solid blue sky. Soarable? Definitely. PK and Jeff C. both got somewhere in the neighborhood of four hours. Launching in between them, my flight was somewhat shorter:

Solid launch, no troubles handling the glider, and a great landing right where I intended. On the hike up the mountain to retrieve the truck, I worked out that at the rate I’ve been going lately, I should have enough hours for my H-4 sometime around 2023. I have nothing to complain about, but honestly, my interest is waning.
