I got up to 7000 AGL. With a standard lapse rate that makes it something like 20 degrees? BURR!
I was in a thermal north of the field yesterday at about 4000ft and I noticed a corn husk! I looked upwind about 3 miles and noticed a field being harvested!
So then it became a competition. Who could thermal better? the corn husk or the 1-26. To my surprise the 1-26 can out climb a corn husk.
Thanks to all who came out and congratulations to Nick on his first solo today!
