Safe back on the ground!

When I started to setup it was WSW. By the time I was ready to fly it was SSW. I decided to have a go anyway. Just as I went to take off a thermal came through and I came within a second of visiting my mate Mick at work.
Somehow with an adrenaline fueled spurt of strength I managed to abort the takeoff and get the wing back under control. A few seconds later I took off safely and the had several exiting minutes working the unpredictable lift. I managed to get above launch for a while but decided that discretion being the better part of valour It would be smarter to land safely in the padlock at the base of the hill.
I got good exercise climbing back up the hill to get the car.
