April 6, 2010 at the Florida Ridge-
Good day for some XC here in SW Florida. Winds ESE around 10 mph at the surface and E at 10 mph, altitude 3000 ft. Pilots here were John Souther, Rafael Castro, and Austin Tindle. John and Austin flew XC while Rafael stayed around the field. John flew 5 miles down State road 80 before sinking out and landing in a cow pasture. Austin flew to Labelle, then back to John's LZ for an hour and a half flight. Para-glider pilot David Prentice drove retrieval for the short XC.
Tomorrow's (4-7-10) potential for distance is very good, and hopefully we get some longer flights to brag about.
