Vlad,

Have been following your epic journey and have thoroughly enjoyed all the great photos along with reading about all the interesting places you visited along the way.

I have friends in MI a little south of White Cloud so wanted to pass on the tip about the best pancakes in MI ... so they can check it out too. Curious, what was the name of the cafe you visited?

Happy flying,

It's good to see that the old Space Shuttle metal (of which that medallion is cast) is still getting miles on it. You probably got half a Rev this last trip!

Can't really blame you, Vlad. With all the scary water and mountain crossings on this trip, a man can't be faulted for finding a way to cut the tension once in a while.

Wait, you're talking your harnesses?? Oh yeah, I have them too, and they really cut the tension in heavy turbulence.

Loved the fantastic scenery photographs across B.C., the Canadian Rockies, and everything else! What a trip, what a report.

Thanks again for sharing.

I'm assuming we're gonna get a shot of the trusty, globe-trotting -9A resting safely back in it's home spot in green, leafy NJ though ....?

Yes. 17 days. I've never been grounded for that long since first flight. Let the wallet recover

Vlad thanks for all the world traveling you do in your RV, it truly is great motivation for many of us to keep pounding rivets and the hopes high of joining the ranks some day.

We met in Edenvale (Piper Cub pilot). I thought about your trip all the way home that day. I told some of my RV buddies about your adventure and they led me here. Amazing trip and pics - thanks for sharing.

Small world Brian. Was great talking to you at the restaurant I wish I weren't on a run. That mighty Cub of yours caught my eye you put some serious hours on that amphib. Thanks for a nice try to pay my bill.

There was an RV12 flying that day who was that?
