Caught the early bus again. The day started out cool. Got a few things done which included visiting flight service for a weather brief. Looks like it should be ok for us. Caught up with Pricey again fortunately. Haven't seen as much of him as I would have liked. After doing a few chores IContinue reading “Interviews and Seaplanes.”
We started early again today. The weather was a lot more friendly. I went shopping again looking at the innovations and also looked for some spark plugs. I bought a set of fine wire spark plugs. Nearly fainted at the price but I'm hoping they will be an improvement. Frankly I'm not convinced but we'llContinue reading “More shopping”

I'm not really keen to tangle with them and in fact we would likely be put in a pattern to wait while they all landed. There's a huge group of Cubs arriving in theContinue reading “This is it!”

I had identified a few trouble spots for accommodation but forgot that one. Evidently we weren’t the only ones who though staging for Oshkosh at MRJ was a good idea. ItContinue reading “Doh! – as Homer says!”
Another 06:00 wake up today but this time with a twist. We were lucky enough to have Duane in the kitchen preparing his speciality egg sandwich, which is on a bagel. And really, what self respecting New Yorker doesn’t know bagels? It was a tasty welcome before kick off of our longest leg so far.Continue reading “Eastbound again”
