What I really liked about flying XC in this area was that there were so many places to land that you never really had to put much thought into worrying if you had an LZ on glide. You could simply focus on flying and finding the next thermal. You could be down to 500' AGL and you usually still had three fields you could land in.
But it's my understanding it's not always the case there. Apparently it was a really wet spring in the area so many of the fields weren't planted yet (early June). I guess it a more typical year, there would have been fewer LZs.
It was also quite different for me. I learned to fly in Colorado and I do most of my flying at mountains sites. Aerotowing and flying in the flatlands is a very different experience.
