I must say glider guys on Saturday morning seemed to be apart from all of us. Except for three of them all of the are 85 and older. They took their planes up to a machine that has a long string on it and a foot pedal. They step on the pedal and the plane shoots straight up into the air and then they tip the nose over and release it. And then they go off and find thermals and they find them!

I was watching them one morning and one of them said "do you see that?" And someone said "yeah I see it Charlie I'm headed that way".

They had spotted a hole in a cloud where the edges of the hole were being sucked in. I asked my friend Jay "what are they talking about?", He said a thermal blew a hole in that cloud and they can see and they're going after it.

PS: I think we have a great flight
