.Monday January 9, 2017 We had not expected to fly until Tuesday with the forecast that we saw but Monday was a Big Lift day and a big surprise and we took advantage of it. My highest gain over launch was 6,528 feet. My airtime for the one flight was 2 hours and 13 minutes. After being so high and above base I made a big mistake left the good lift 5 miles downwind of Wallaby and headed upwind and after a few minutes I decided that I was not going to make it the next clouds so I turned back hoping to get into the same lift that I had been in but I could not find it so upwind I went and by the time I was over the warehouses I was down to 1,800 feet and there was not much lift there so I headed downwind over Wallaby expecting to land and as I came over the Ranch I hit a bubble at 1,000 feet and Wow, I took it up to 4 grand and another surprise. I putted around for a half hour and finally got down to 800 feet and decided to land after a great flight. Oded, Moritz, Aric Paulson and Mick Robson shared the air with me today and that was great and they all did very well. I have video coming soon. Yes it was cool but I was pretty well dressed for it. Tuesday's forecast looks good so away we go again.
