Travelled NE for about 5 hours. Good to finally get going. Much relief about all the new Ozone kites, that had never been flown before, they were sweet. Bad weather forecast for Sunday, so a decision was made to head directly NE and miss DYE 2. 40+ knots forecast so we wanted to try and outrun storm. Early start tomorrow to get more mileage in.
