Airborne at last!

I finally got to fly yesterday after work. It was really enjoyable. The air was relatively calm and even though it was 78 degrees on the ground, it was quite nippy up in the air. I didn't bring my GPS with me because I can't find it at the moment, but I did get up to what I estimate to be 2000 feet or so. I didn't stay that high too long. I was only wearing a flannel shirt over my T-shirt and I was starting to get cold, so I descended to about 800 feet and did some pattern work and some touch & gos. I practiced for about 30 minutes before I started to fly out over some of the field near the airport. I flew about 30 more minutes before heading back in. It was really great to get airborne for the first time this year!
