Dust Devil Dash quick recap

Today I flew in the Dust Devil Dash, a straight-out distance contest from Tehachapi, CA. This is the second time I've flown the DDD. I got to Olancha, a little town a few miles from Lone Pine, right near Mount Whitney. That's about 72 nautical miles, more than double my previous best distance. The flight was eventful but the landing was safe (only my second landout ever). About 3 hours, max altitude about 13,000 feet. I'll write more about it when I get home... the network in this motel keeps dying on me.
