On Friday, I was scheduled for a trip over to New Holstein, but the weather was marginal along the route, so we cancelled that plan and shot some takeoffs and landings at KOSH.  Winds were 320 @ 7 kts and gusty — perfect for crosswind practice — but up at pattern altitude times were exciting with all of the turbulence and gusty winds.  In any case, my precision improved somewhat, which gave me confidence that in fact I can master the skill of side-slipping.  I made 5 landings and my last one was fairly good so I ended there.
