May 21, 2015 - Mara to Revy

Had the unexpected luck of having two Retrieve drivers - Mike and Fred. When does that ever happen??

1st we drove to flyhills, I took a calculated risk and launched early - it did not work out so we packed up and drove to Mara - got off launch at about 1:45.

The day was amazing with a high cloud base (over 13k) and little wind. I made great time to just before 3 valley gap. I waited on the Mara range side until I got high - I have heard of people getting flushed in the venturi there.

After making the crossing it was clear sailing - until the river crossing towards the Revy ski hill. Was touch and go as to glide - but managed to find another thermal just before the river - so sweet - back up (-:

Took a little tour the ski hill and Mt Cartier - and then off to dinner at the Villiage Idiot in Revy to celebrate with Mike and Fred.
