Comments:Comments: Arrived at hill at 13.15 to find loads of cars and no pilots - b*****ds! Ran to take off and threw gear together but far too strong to take off - bigger b*****ds!! Stood ready - just in case there was a lul. There was a lul! Took off straight into a thermal and left the hill. Had a lot of fun on the way and landed 60 odd km later. Wicked sky and varied from weak to screaming (a 7m/sec climb - in the uk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Too tired to trype any more. Keith
