less than 20 miles today. Except for my excuse … which is that I was by myself! (Or, still waiting for that ball to drop!) Come on guys - don't leave your president hanging like that.
Woody thermaled to cloud base with me at Kahana, out-thermaling me of course, but he didn't join me at Kualoa, where I benched up and looked longingly at the Pyramid and the main range. It looked amazing. I expected a full complement of the Usuals to come floating down from Makapuu. But no one appeared or even answered on the radio. I flew back and then flew to Punaluu where the thermals were feeding some intense dark bottomed clouds, which were still quite high. I should have dashed to the golf course but I had limited time so I joined Woody back at Kahana.
Two lonely pilots skied out with nowhere to go in the most perfect thermals I can remember all year. That just seems wrong! I look forward to more company soon!
