It had been about 8 weeks since my last solo flight, so it was good to get in the air. Launched about 10:45 and stayed up about a half hour +. Got to 9+ in a convergence slightly to the NW. Went over Rayes. The drift was variable, and I managed to avoid the lift. Got stuck on the point below 7 for a while. Finally got up enough to get back to launch. Had the family waiting, so I top landed on the road a few yards west of launch.
The rest of the gang showed up as I was launching. Art got to the mid 9s around noon. Bob Hurlbett and Ron Faoro also got up, but the other half + struggled on the point. A couple landed short. It was blowing up both sides on the way down.
Fun weekend. First time for Sam up at Pine for camping Friday night. Got a flat on the way up. The spare was real small. The wind seemed to shift around quite a bit. Stopped at a swimming hole below the hitter ledge on the way back.
