Placida Gasparilla #980

Yesterday was jet lag.

I awoke at 4:45 and arrived at the field about 6:25.  I knew it was going to be a good morning when I ran into Mike Otten at the gas stop.  He was driving the Cheney Bros truck, making a delivery.  He had seen the post about flying this morning but duty called and he choose to feed his family instead.  We talked about doing a night flight during the July full moon.   Maybe….

There was a very light breeze from the west and 76 degrees F.  The air was mostly smooth with occasional bumps.  Thermal layer was at 950 ft.   Full Reflex most of the flight.
