A very strange day. Nil wind on launch, climb out with Phil W, not very high, went west to get a turnpoint for a triangle. Reached the M6 and found significant wind so decided I wouldn't be able to make it back to the hill. Good line of convergence cloud so headed North along the motorway, spotting a couple of light planes using the motorway as a handrail. Note to self: keep well out of the clouds which were forming around an below. Very confusing wind layers, twisitng the thermals in all directions, I eventually got fed up with the broken rubbish and started looking for landing options near towns and roads but each time I'd get a climb and push on, now being blown inland on a sea-breeze westerly (smoke on the ground was from the south). There was now a cloud street that looked like I could ride it back to Parlick - now that would have been some flight. It wasn't to be and I had a gret choice of freshly-harvested stubble fields at Low Bentham. This is a common ending place for flights over the back from Parlick, usually much more direct, and not easy to get back from - the next bus was in 3 hours. But the trusty hitching sign worked fine, lift to J34, then 4 people rang with offers to come an get me. Thanks everyone, and especially Geoff for driving out.
