XC tour porterville - in pursuit of 100km

In early March of every year we head down to Porterville & Valley-of-Desolation (with a quick stop-over in Wilderness) for 1 week of focused XC flying, with the sole objective being to break 100km. March is the best time because it is extremely hot and the inversion can lift to 3000m ATO on select days. The thermals will definitely yield some good XC opportunities. Conditions are traditionally strong, so this trip is for reasonably experienced Pilots wanting "adventurous" XC flying.
