I had every factor working in my favor today.
- Tailwind of 17 mph – I watched the cloud shadows going the same direction I was going
- Slight downhill
- Comfortable temperature
- Slightly overcast
- Low humidity though we were keeping our eye on a storm behind us
- Wide shoulder, mostly clean
Because of these great conditions, I reached the 1000 mile mark flying! I was averaging nearly 20 mph until I got close to Alamosa and had to slow down to get directions.
