Longest flight to date - 2.25 hours

I went to MR yesterday, and the conditions were a bit light and South.  It was really crowded at first, because I guess everyone was expecting good conditions and it was a Sunday.  I did a three flights from Coyote Launch.  And I sank out immediately on all of them.  By this point the crowds had mostly left launch, and some people were just hanging out in the LZ.  I figured what the hell, I'll hike up for another sledder.  This was my first day launching from Coyote, and it would at least be some good practice.  But the wind picked up just enough that I was able to soar the cliff in front of Coyote a few times, and then I turned South and was able to make it around the corner.  I made it up the cliffs over the beach.  I ended up flying for 2.25 hours.  I would have landed sooner, but I wasn't sure if I would be able to get up again.  And I need those hours to get to P3.  I'm getting closer.  This one flight was >10% of the total hours that I need to make it to P3.

Oh and I named my glider.  The colors of the glider are lime green and yellow.  And recently I created a summer cocktail that we named a 'Gatorade Spritz'.  It kinda tastes like a lemon-lime Gatorade, and it's pretty refreshing.  The name is kinda a joke, because it sounds pretty nasty.  But the drink is actually really good.

This is NOT me.  I found this picture on Ozone's facebook page, but this is the same color scheme as my wing.

Gatorade Spritz:

In cocktail shaker:
1.5 oz vodka
1 oz lemon juice
0.75 oz simple syrup
Ice cubes

Shake that up, strain in a pint glass filled with ice.  Add in a healthy splash of lime flavored Le Croix, and stir.
