#963. Shell Creek
I’ve been playing invalid for 6 days, nursing a sore groin and sporting a seriously bruised thigh. The puncture where they inserted the cardiac catheter is barely noticeable and I suspect the whole affair had more impact on my head than anything else.
So after a frustrating day arranging a Doctors appointments and lining up boat detailers, I jumped into the truck and headed out to the field. The wind was 7 mph from the west. In the past I’ve turned back when faced with launching across the runway and toward the skydiving operation, but today I decided to go for it.
Luck was with me because while I was unloading the wind shifted and I was able to set up more down the runway than across it. Unfortunately the air was shifty and bumpy all the way up to 1000 feet. I turned back and landed after 7 minuted. According to the FlySkyHy App it was indeed lifty sinky air.
