Very good day Tuesday (tomorrow)

Looks like a very good chance for a 7500 ft. Day tomorrow. If you don’t have to work consider flying Kagel.
Watch out for the traffic in Victor Airway 459. Best to stay below 6000 in this area.

It's a flight discussion topic,
but it originated here, so i will finish it here.

It really was a good day, initially even a little on the wild side, punchy and rough near the edges,
felt very much like that young, strong spring air.

There were 4 of us, Loren, Phill, John and I. We got to Big T, it was kind of blown out there, strong east.
So we turned back and played in the backyard.
Loren got to 7800, I think. Once I saw him specking out near West Towers, tried to catch up with him,
but after 7400 it was too cold for my comfort, so I bailed.

Later some paragliders went up and had good flights also.

Spring is here.
