Last week Jeff and I ventured to Tarkio in hopes of finding dry enough rodes to make it to launch. After a few tries we made it and found a nice dry launch site. Conditions appeared to be great; a slight west wind with nice cycles moving through launch. After a quick set up I was standing on launch. A few powerful steps and I was in the air for the first time this year. Everything came back to me and it felt great to be in the air again. Conditions turned out to be more difficult than expected so after 15 minutes I headed to the landing zone. The wind direction was blowing 90 degrees cross from what we saw earlier and with barely enough altitude, I squeaked in a nice approach and landed. Moments later Jeff landed rather than fly around by himself for an hour.
The temps have been wonderful for rock climbing also. Not so warm as to get all sweaty but not so cool than your fingers get cold. I've put in a few days at the local crag and am pretty motivated to try and climb some routes. Its just a matter of staying motivated which can be a difficult thing when my head is in the clouds. Just have to wait and see.
