|Matt, Dawn and Jim....Flying with the crazy socks!|
The mountains were really ratty, so I finally found my way out to the flats and headed south. There were people in the sky here and there to show me some thermals, so I had it pretty easy. Then the wind seemed to turn back north again! That made it an easy choice to go back home, and save the bus ride for another day. I got really high, so much I was cold (that doesn't happen very often in Colombia), and I landed pretty much in the front yard of the hotel. After 5 1/2 hours and about 80 km. That was good enough for an even bigger overall lead on the XC Hike and Fly website. http://www.xc-hikeandfly.com. I'm sure that will last until the skies get nice in Europe....
