        It was a nice fall day. SkySite said thermals to 4000 agl and that’s how high I finally got. SkySite also forecast lift for about 4 hours and I managed to squeeze out 3.25 hours. Not to hot, not to windy, not to strong. It reminded me of mid to late October in Phoenix, but not quite as high. Thanks to Nick for the tow, John Osborn GSO, Lawrence for the hook-up and wing run. There was a fair amount of instruction and the day was good for that. Finally thanks to Jim Hopkins for waiting until I landed and handing me a cold refreshment and help me to put my ship away. There may not be many more days like this so when one comes along all y’all should take advantage of it. John Lincoln

              Thanks, Andy,  for checking-refilling the GC tires & H2O, and cleaning that crummy Reverse switch, again.
