Flying from a moving vehicle would be somewhat different from standing by the winch, I would assume.

Traveling down the road, a mile from the field, and finding no lift would present some different challenges. I would not try it with a pure glider where I live. But I might try it with an ALES set-up where I can reclimb on the course if I had to.

Piloting the glider at extreme height and having to keep pace from the car is something I read about. Or going under a bridge or below a canopy of trees. I hear this is a bit different from flying stationary at the field.
