901 Yorkshire

Met up with Mike and Bob at the Yorkshire LZ at 6:30.  Bob wasted no time getting up and I followed shortly after.  The plan was to fly out to the Arcadia Airport and back but I hitched my horse to the wrong wagon.  I stayed with Bob after takeoff and we climbed to 2000 feet but instead of turning North Bob stayed within a 5 mile radius of our launch.  Mike on the other hand stayed low and made a beeline toward Arcadia.  

So....Bob and I played around the patch for 90 minutes in calm air.  Turns out he was having trouble with is motor and opted to stay close and practice maneuvers.  Mike completed his round trip including a pit stop at the airport in about 110 minutes.  All in all , a good way to start the day.
