insects in the trees and I can hear motorbikes too.. flashes of lightning in the distance as well here we are on the summit ridge
had a pretty good sleep a big storm was dumping some rain before, there’s still a bit of virga around and these things have been flashing away all night, Denpasar is down that way… and West Bali its really getting scenic at the camp now got the shadow of the mountain on the clouds the storms lit up and look at that view, eh?
a few guys standing around the summit it almost seems worth it now I’ve just taken a short walk to the proper
summit and i think i might actually go back might be better to launch where I slept. Mt Agung. I’m ready to go, feeling nervous, but conditions are good I’d taken the risk of waiting for thermals
and it was good the conditions were perfect I had no scooter or car to get back to so it was
free for me to fly anywhere on the island I slept on that spur.
The summit is just along here, in view I couldn’t ask for much more. Just a very light breeze as I was sleeping and it picked up a bit as the sun came up There was a big cumulonimbus out here on dawn but it’s dissipated.. almost nothing left You can see all the cloud is drifting around this volcano, both sides, venturi-ing there’s not much happening here .. beautiful though looks like I might be out of the game should I make a dash for Candidasa? 45 knots you can see the difference between those clouds and those clouds – convergence I’m in So, much warmer down here. I’m getting really good glides, but hitting more wind down here I didn’t realize it at the time but that
village ahead on the right is one of those well preserved Bali ones that doesn’t
have any interactions with the outside world except for tourism I guess Wet. There’s a lot of whitecaps out here so it’s probably a touch over 20 knots so not the best I’ve decided to put it down here. It’s not ideal, but yeah – nice one. I was hot hungry and thirsty so after a
quick dip, off to Candidasa for lunch crashing waves on the rocks so I’m going to run through there. Got to
get the timing right. I’ve come here and sussed it out whew – that’s it
