cloud surfing in the Baron

Today I got a nice warm up for the IFR season.  Day before Thanksgiving it was nice to see plenty of air traffic out there, but for my IFR routing ATC wanted to keep me low... 8k or below which put me right in the top of the cloud layer.  I love this kind of flying, you really get the sensation of hauling ass when you see the clouds fly by at 230 mph.  It's also too warm for ice yet so a stress free IFR flight with 45 minutes of actual all inside a 2000 ft thick cloud layer.  Good fun!
