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.
