6/25/18 on our hill


I made it out today after work to try some light wind slermaling on our hill.
The forecast was for a max of 10 mph north dropping off to under 9 after 4:30.
I used my 2M Great Planes Spirit to check out the possibilities ,as I have not tried to fly in north wind at this marginal wind speed .
The first hour was good flying alternating between ranging out and thermaling with the active air and running back to the hill and sloping the face .
On Que the wind speed dropped ,I started to notice the bugs coming out of hiding then the wind shifted across the hill to from the north east all the lift vanished.
Time to pick up and go.
A great way to end the work day -
