958 & 959

958 was only a token flight.
10 minutes
900 ft
Easterly winds
I couldn’t launch from Shell Creek because of an Easterly wind across the runway.  I would have had to transit SWF Skydiving and thats not going to happen.   So. I dashed over to Mike’s LZ at Peachtree and Veterans.
It was a no frills flight.  The sun had already set so I didn’t fool with the iPad or iTunes.  Quick launch and some carving around the field.

950 was 10 minutes after dawn.
50 minutes
I set the alarm for 5:30 and overslept to 6:30.  Light winds from the East built throughout the flight.  Smooth air above.  Strong bumps below 200 feet.
