Taylor is a nice quiet muni airport. The runway is good, but just taxi a little slower than usual on the parallel taxiway. It is a bit wavy in some places that can catch one by surprise.

The taxiway at T74 is NEW and smooth. The taxiways have changed around on the S end, but not too much. The ramp 'has not changed'...new hangars are done, but not yet occupied.

Tanya - you gotta get out more.

I haven't been there personally, but I do know they take their no ops between sunset and sunrise rule VERY seriously (civil twilight does not count at Lakeway).

Default Great Info

Thanx for the info all. Sounds like southern hospitality (and BBQ) abounds near Austin. I'll post my experience here after my trip. If anyone has more info on Lakeway 3R9 please post. That is the closest to my destination. And NO plan to go into A-B.

There are more!
Thanks Mark, took the RV to T74 today and the crew car to Davis', would never have found that place if not for your post, it's off the beaten track, going to try the rest in the near future.

Cheers.

Default Austin Exec

Completed my relocation flight with Warner Robins GA my final destination.
Left Cable airport in SoCal at 7am. Made 2 fuel stops - Marana regional (KAVQ) AZ. Very nice airport with a cafe and self service pumps. Then on to San Angelo (KSJT) TX. Lots of jet traffic which got most of the ramp attention. I'll just say that I dont plan on stopping here again. Landed at Austin Exec at 5:45. They took care of me and the plane even with jet traffic arriving. Very good service. Reasonable self service gas and Low overnite parking of $10. Had great BBQ at the downtown Coopers.
Left the next morning with varying cloud layers and had to stop in Natchitoches (KIER) due to IFR. (Pronounced "Nak u tish" for us non-locals). Another nice GA airport with good service, a courtesy car and nice people. Actually spent the nite in the pilot lounge. Departed at 7 into clear skies.
Stopped for fuel in Moton (06A) AL. Great little airport with good service. Plan on going back to see the Tuskegee museum. Landed at final destination Perry Houston KPXE Georgia at noon with a welcoming party.
Had a great series of flights, great adventure and almost perfect experience for 2000 miles in 3 days with my son Kyle. The RV is a magical machine.
