Hello again from sunny Spain.  Sunny it may be but warm it isn’t, with constant northerly winds keeping temperatures probably lower than at home.  We have however managed to fly on most days in a mixture of thermal and wave.  Yesterday was a very good wave day with entry points in all the classic places and easy climbs to at least 15000′.  But the rotor was exciting!  JF and 291 went about 125k east in the wave while T1, the Fly-Pyr Duo, with Neal and myself in it, went west and north to explore.
