I've been working on my level 3 thermal flights and 30 mins is harder than I thought it would be. One day last November I thought I had it in the bag, and discovered only after setting up to land that my timer (thanks a lot, Doug!) goofed reading the stopwatch, and I was 3 minutes short!

One other thing I'd like to mention, I have found Google Earth to be a superb tool for getting exact distances for the XC tasks. That way you can avoid wasting time going farther than necessary.
