Mick, did you use the tricks along with feeling the wind and temperature or just the wind and temperature? If you managed to nail it unaided then GOOD ON YA! ! ! ! The one you felt was the sort of smaller one that peters out without breaking connection with the ground. Or perhaps you simply missed the core. In addition to watching the wind speed and temp watch for the DIRECTION as well. A sizeable shift in the wind direction along with a speed change can indicate a thermal over to one side of your location. If the winds are stronger then you can just adapt to the new direction and launch and hopefully it gets pulled over to the core that is anywhere up to 50 meters over to the side.

You're also well on your way to having the others consider you as a practitioner of the Dark Arts....
