Ed, practice is a realitive term, good thermal skills are the only skill needed. It does help to have a team with someone that has been-there-n-done-that, just to keep from doing some simple mistakes. Altitude is an absolute, time does not matter, and have lots of batteries in the plane (some LV flights have taken hours, some less than one). Around here, practice is your LIV XC flight, 1.2miles, and that gives you a taste and then the biggest deal is just finding the day, which the Nats gives you 2 days, and folks to help and a vehicle.
