instead of running, because the wind had picked up, I carried my Adventure out to see if it wanted to fly.
A hawk was circling above finding weak thermals drifting with the wind from NE.
Yes! Some good training. The wing is a bit tricky to pull up; it has a tendency to move to one or the other side. The wind was tricky, too.
At take off it usually is easier to get the glider up.
