Talking Visiting Jeff

Jeff lives in Jeffersonville, US. Jeff has cool job, nice house, garage full of toys and RV9 empennage. I've been to Jeff's place a year or so ago (see post #7 and #8)















What Jeff desperately needs is serious RV Brainwashing. I am always ready to help

As always Vlad you are welcome at any time. The RV brainwashing happened about 2 years ago now.

In fact any RV that needs a quick or long stopover is always welcome.

Vlad did lay claim to the bourbon but we can figure out something else, and I do have a stocked fridge of Flat Tire beer now.

Myself, getting old and lazy, recruited freshly baked private pilot to do servo work. In the interests of national security his identity won't be revealed. I will call him MR.1016





MR.1016 "works airplanes". Not domestic like my cousin but rather wild airspaces I've never heard of before. He is young, energetic and in good physical shape. Perfect candidate for autopilot and great platform to plant an RV Bug . Plus he is walking encyclopedia on geography.

MR1016 was sharp on time. We swapped plane-for-cars hangar space and left.





We couldn't escape unnoticed. Somewhere in Maryland three RVs converged for breakfast.


Glen arrived in style.








Father Don was couple minutes late.







Breakfast was good. We ate fast, posed for a panorama and went our way.





There was another RV on the field and we briefly talked to the owner.






Father Don escorted us around Red Circle.

Hospitable Clark County met us with smile, moderate turbulence and nice cross winds.






Up we go with Jeff for couple steeps and stalls.












Then he drives me past super duper sekrit ammunition depot. I've seen bigger











Crosswinds at satellite airport blasted us sideways and Jeff couldn't land it on first try. Me neither

We went around and did approach again by the book. Easy peasy.


Then was a steak house. Compulsory food picture - here several minutes ago was Rogan Steak.







Then was Jeff's house. Bottle of Brown Water older then Communism. Let the Brainwash begin

Vlad, even without very VERY nice beach and water pictures... you set the gold standard with interesting and humorous trip reports. I aspire to reach your "altitude" someday. One question, with brown water who is brainwashing who?

This is Hot Springs, Virginia. Last time when I visited the FBO guy told me that he was not sure whether it is him or the pilot who lands during a gusty day who is more scared. There is always windshare on the approach end of the runway (a cliff).

A few thousand feet down the valley on the other side of the ridge is this:
The Homestead
