Our team has been staying at Lens place, outside Forbes in Rustic Australia. The stars are amazing out there. For those that have seen the movie "The Dish", the facility is just outside Parkes. Yesterday we flew north 92km and back. At least that was the task, however during the day a 27km southerly developed and made the return quite challenging.
The storms probably created the southerly draw. I ended up 8km short, after 6hrs 41mins and drifting 10kms backwards, ... But I found a nice place to land, and they gave me a beer or two :) It had 43'C during the day !
