It just didn’t feel right. I woke and hour before the alarm and went through the usual routine. The winds were predicted to be 6 but were 10 in Punta Gorda. When I got to the field it was a little strong but doable. I waited 15 minutes and it was coming down nicely. It was very flyable.
BUT… It just didn’t feel right. Maybe it was the new wing, maybe I didn’t drink enough coffee, maybe it’s because I’d flown the two previous days and was tired. Maybe it’s because Jeff Goin has stepped down from the USPPA. Whatever the reason, I didn’t feel like going up.
BUT … The sunrise was awesome so I enjoyed the sight and drove home. The next several days it’s going to be high winds and a wet cold front.
