The second task day was tougher than the first. It seemed okay at first, and lots of folks got high, but once again just before the start window opened, we got a massive flush cycle that I never quite recovered from. The air was not doing anything I recognized, it just felt trashy, and I ended up at the LZ without making the first turnpoint across the valley. I had lots of company down there, at least. I think only a small group of pilots really made something out of the day. Anyway, a few of us went to the winery to salve our bruised egos, including Don and Motorhead Paul, and we enjoyed a nice mellow afternoon in the cool indoor tasting house at Fiasco Winery. After that we enjoyed a nice mellow glass off flight, floating up high over the middle of the Ruch valley as the sun was setting.
