I think, and this is only a hunch, that people get in trouble on Superior by trying to stick to a schedule. ( you know the boss will fire you if you are late back to work).When I solo I am very conservative and probably over "bail out". That said I have not yet had many total wind days. Some days are only twelve miles long though!
