Default Petit Jean Bound!

This morning Roy and I launched from KHIO (Hillsboro, Oregon) for a 7 week journey in our RV-7A. First destination: Petit Jean, Arkansas for the PJ Fly-in! We can hardly wait to see our friends!
But first, a wistful good bye to the great PNW. The air was hazy, and it was still a 9 volcano day.


We stopped for lunch at (U76) Mountain Home, Idaho. We continued east, but found ourselves confused. The Garmin shows we’re crossing in to Utah, but we couldn’t find the corresponding border lines on the ground. How do we know where we are if we can’t see the lines on the ground?

"...but found ourselves confused. The Garmin shows we’re crossing in to Utah, but we couldn’t find the corresponding border lines on the ground. How do we know where we are if we can’t see the lines on the ground?"

As a "Coastie" you should not have had any problems seeing the line across Bear Lake.
