Make sure we know when he is ready to go. I want to follow that pretty close. Thanks.

Maybe have him update the blog too!

Default Stuck in Hilo

Well if you have to be stuck waiting on weather and maintenance issues...I guess Hilo is as good as any as opposed to the middle of no-where third world country.

According to FlightAware he is now at PHOG. Hope his problems are minor and he found a good place for the plane.

Default RTW trip update

Due to concerns of potential damage to the plane from Hurricane Hector at Hilo, I relocated "May" to the island of Maui. Thanks to the VAF community (Ed, Scott, Eric, and Brad) I was able to secure a hanger at Kahului Airport (PHOG).

The winds aloft forecast for the Hawaii/California flight does not look favorable for the next two weeks. I decided to fly home commercially, rest and prepare for the final leg of the trip. When I return to Hawaii on August 21, I will complete work on the aircraft, fly back to Hilo, and wait for right moment to fly the 2000+nm to California.

John

Good decision John. I’m curious what “work” are you doing on the plane?
