Wesmar April 18 2015
I chose to go before anyone else. I got rewarded with a gentle climb out to about 4k AGL. Rick M in the Carbon Dragon came up Larry B followed suit.
Sadly Rick was turning in imaginary lift, and unlike Peter Pan, I didn't believe could be real. Rick went up, Larry B and I came down.

I don't remember the remaining order, but Larry W, Matt D, Dan M, and Terry M were all up and horsing around with lift. Larry B and I finally got back in line and joined Larry W, the last remaining pilot in the sky.

Willie dropped me off well under the Larrys 2. We were about a glide away (for me) already. I hung on and eventually found a solid core. Not long after I hear Larry B telling Lesa he is landing out..... Didn't even realize he was no longer above me. I hear Larry W saying he is heading back, but I highly doubt I can make it back. I'm guessing I'll be on my own.

Larry had radio problems and wasn't leaving if he couldn't get Linda on the radio. Well now he has Linda on the radio so he turns back to join my thermal. Soon we are off. Drift is pretty slow and quite southerly. We go with it until we can swing around the lake. A couple more good climbs and Larry says he is probably going to the Fayette Co airport.

Happy with my flight, and not wanting to be a burden retrieve, I follow him down. Larry B would say it was a 18 miles flight. (Pin to pin) I say it was a 37 mile dogleg!
You be the judge! OLC Flight Summary

Here is some footage from both my flights for the day.
