Indeed. Jekyll Island is also the birthplace of the Federal Reserve Bank. See The Creature from Jekyll Island.

Thank you Scott for your VAF Novels posted, not only the inspiration to fly your RV like many dream too but also your talent in writing. Your honest ups and downs of small airports is all too real, I still can't help smiling about the latest natural emergency I've experienced several times just off the runway prior to the hold short line....
I've read a couple of the complaints in this thread, Perhaps some have quit looking forward to the next chapter and some have discontinued. As for me keep writing it as you see it because I'm looking forward to it!

I agree, with the prior poster. I thoroughly enjoy your travel reports (as well as all others such as Vlad's etc). Having made a month ago a cross country flight which started in N. CA and went via Oshkosh to Belfast ME and then back, I have some empathy for your experiences, though I don't camp. Keep the reports coming--I am a subscriber and look forward to each one!

There is an important lesson to be taken from Scott's experience. It's about time. We have so little of it and are willing to share even less of it. Yet it is only in sharing our time with others that we experience the truest generosity of spirit.

I'm building my aircraft at the airport and have lost countless hours of "productivity" as a result of folks walking into the hangar. I welcome them all. Some of them come with idle curiosity, some with a burning passion for flight, and yet others with stories which have enriched my life. All in exchange for a little bit of my time. It's a great tradeoff. Spend some time with a stranger - you never know just how that visit may change your life.

Nice write up about Immokalee, FL (KIMM) . Your statement "Once I crossed the first major intersection and began pedaling through downtown, I began to wonder if I was even in America anymore. It looked more to me like I was in Mexico." just goes to emphasize that "America" is so much more than the single ethnic nation some think it is. You really realize the grandeur of America when you fly to and experience places like this.

Default note from a moderator

Let's not inject politics or current events into Scott's travelogue. He is documenting his amazing journey, extraneous posts are non-productive and could run afoul of VAF policy.

Default Air mattress?

Scott--

I was wondering about your air mattress. Do you have to blow that up by mouth every time you want to use it, or do you have a 12V compressor?
