Yesterday Kris flew from Cullom, Illinois to Eaton, OH some 213
miles. Top of lift was 8800'. He had good climbs but not great and a decent
push. Unfortunately, the cloud dotted sky led into a 30 mile blue hole before
the cloud streets reformed. It was the blue hole that ended the flight with
plenty of sunshine left.
He is on a roll this season with two flights over 200 miles (one an east of
Mississippi River record), one 193 mile flight and one 100+ mile triangle. The
Midwest is cracking right now. Unfortunately I couldn't partake yesterday as I
was installing a new septic system at my flip house.
