you guys are having all the fun! literally! up here in NY most airports do not have a restaurant on grounds. getting 2 rv's to fly together is considered a major air show event attended by 3 people! lol. from oct 2013 to jan 8th 2014, while in Venice Fl, I HAD to fly 60 hrs, why?, because I could. Took off Jan 8th and landed 6 hrs later in Syracuse. as of yesterday I have flown only 13 hrs!! that sucks!! NY weather sucks too! When you go out flying around here you almost never encounter another RV. just the typical Pipers and Cessna's. and u no how we all try to get along. 2 weeks ago i went to an open house across NY state because they announced all kinds of static displays. aircraft, (one biplane)
gliders (2).
fire department, at least they bought all 3 of their fire trucks.
2- state troopers 1-motorcycle state trooper. i live here and never saw a motorcycle NYS Trooper.
1-oversized ultralight. There wasn't any food, no beverages of any kind except the bathroom sink. I saw everything in 2 minutes. Luckily I had also planed a second stop that said pancake bkfst. I had my uncle, MR Doolittle! yep, related to the big G. But we got a call that a friend of mine was attempting his second test flight of his Soneri. 1st time he lost eng on T/O. so we headed back but he didn't do the second attempt. winds too strong. so we ate our late bkfst there. marginal at best. we were the only people in the restaurant. And, oh yeah< gas is $5.95-$7+ (thats gas for the plane not from the food)
I MISS FLORIDA!
