Thumbs up

Your adventure provides encouragement for me to finish the mistress. Engine and avionics to go. Although some airports and towns seem deserted and worn down, something can always be gained from the experience, as Scott shows and describes. I've enjoyed following your travels.

Default Ten Commandments

It appears our good friend Scott needs to review #8 of the 10 Commandments. The people that run that airport on Catalina Island are operating a business and I doubt they take kindly to people trying to run off without paying their bill. I'm sure they have seen it before and obviously knew what they had to do to stop a thief. Any admonishments Scott received were well deserved.

Default Love Catalina, hate airport

I would be hanging out at Catalina much more if the runway was any good. No sure if this is a conspiracy to keep people away or not. Sure wish the runway was better, then I would gladly pay the landing fee.
Thank you
John S

“With a nice plane like that, you should be able to afford it,” said Justin.

I suppose that stigma will never go away that if you fly an airplane ,you must be independently wealthy. Thanks again Scott for taking us along on your travels, it never gets old .

Talking Hoping for series renewal

He's not home yet ! I expect another final episode on Monday. Although he could leave us with another cliffhanger since this is his second season and I'm hoping he does a third season again next summer. That is if Armageddon doesn't happen. Actually going to miss his daily posts. He's gives a very good insight on what a tour to small airports in the USA would be like and the varied receptions he received. And his photography is outstanding.
