Comments:Sat around for a few hours with no wind, ran out of food and was low on patience, and was considering drifting off home - like many others. About 4.30 wind came on and every man and dog threw themselves into the air. No drift and no time left so went for a mini-triangle boating around the valley. When the thermal lift faded got bored and landed. A nice day and probably the first XC that I did not have to have a retrieve and/or long walk
