|Mega task today!|
|Alien art near Odessa!|
|Crossing the highway on a perfect day!|
|Final glide just past the Forest Preserve.|
I had to slow down to get high enough to cross this area of no roads, and then another slow and patient climb on the other side, and I was home free! I could see Fairfield and the goal field, and lots of pilots ahead of me and lots still behind me.
I was impressed by the amount of organization that went into this task. There were lots of retrieve vehicles at goal, ready to take pilots back, and Owen was downloading tracks from our instruments right there (for those with limited or no data on our phones).
I'm glad I decided to fly today as the conditions were lovely once away from the Butte. We could have kept going; Matt Henzi decided to do just that and got over 300 km by dusk! The scenery was amazing, watching the OD in the mountains to the north, and the palouse as we neared the Idaho border. It was certainly a highlight of this comp for me!
