My Xpyr is ending with a little more excitement than I bargained for.

Well today started off with some nice flying in mellow conditions on the Cadi mountains but it looks like my race is coming to an end with my wing in a tree after I threw my reserve parachute in nasty nasty foehn-ish wind trying to land in the valley near turnpoint 6. The awesome thing is that I came down without a scratch. Not exactly how I wanted to finish but I have had a great race and I'm very happy to be safe and sound on the ground.

Last day push. The horses can rest but I have to push for one more day.

Well I am really happy I decided to push yesterday for the Cadi  mountains. I made it here to launch at a good time and I made some good progress down the north side of the mountain. Unfortunately I got stuck in a sinky shady spot and had to land. Fortunately I can hike up to launch again pretty quick and hopefully make turn point 6 soon. It's a long shot but the end of the course is still within reach.

Interesting mix of wind and air masses today. I got to turn point 5 but then got stuck. Now after a hike up I'm going to try to get back in the air.
