Texas Yet Again

Robin Hamilton called it again. This time he had company, Mick
Howard and Nate Wreyford all went on a 175 km trek to Beeville.
It was a beautiful blue day (with low￼ humidity) and again they launched late
and went over 100 miles.
Their initial climbs were weak 50-100 fpm and Robin did get down to 800 feet, but
you know Robin, he wasnt there long. The average climbs were about 300 fpm
(though Robin did see 750 fpm in one climb at El Campo).
Launching late in the afternoon the flight took about 4 hours and they spiraled
down to land. Mick spiraled down from 5,000 feet.
It was a nice day and more are on tap for Texas.
Ironically they had little to no radio contact with each other and didnt see
each other in the air, yet they landed within 5km of each other. Pretty easy
retrieve for Sasha.
Oh well, just another great Texas day.
