8/18/22

Thursday 8/18 Dan, Amy, and I went to Ellenville. This was my first time at E-ville in years.  Forecast 3000' winds were 295 @ 15 mph. There were at least a dozen or more HG's there.  There were some occasional isolated rain clouds to the N but the big problem to me was the blue hole over the Ellenville area.  This finally started to fill in a little before 4 pm, so I launched 1st, scratched for maybe 15 minutes, then some lifty air arrived and I was able to get to the higher parts of the hill as two other HG's launched into the good air. I found a decent climb and took it way back to 6900' before coming back to the ridge.  By now there were some nice dark clouds N of launch and I managed to hook into a rocketship climb under one.  That was fun! It was also a beautiful scene with the clouds dropping rain to the N and E and sun interspersed making partial rainbows.  I used the altitude to cross the valley, then returned to a cloud over the ridge S of launch for one last climb before crossing the valley a second time, cruising back to launch, and going to land a little before 6 pm.  Winds were light N by then and not soarable. Only I and the other two HG's flew (Wilhad was one of them).  David K.
