(which I’ll add to later…)
I’m so VERY GLAD that Tuppergal and I made this month-long trip, and it was even MORE SPECIAL making the month-long trip with Keys, Sharkbait, Jailbird & Indira!
It probably helped that we’ve all traveled together in the past so there were going to be no surprises when flying with Rosie. And thank you all for letting me touch your plane
When flying with Rosie…you just fly IFR…”I Follow Rosie” as Seismo says! But it was also good to let Sharkbait and Keys lead some of the legs to gain experience…not flying but having to talk with foreign controllers…getting four (4) planes on the ground can be a challenge but is do-able! Jailbird did his fair share of leading but he's an 'Old Salt' when it comes to flying the Islands!
It was also a new but fun challenge flying to foreign airports for the very first time and trying to figure out who wants what, where they want it, and how much they want!
Here's the list of 23 islands we landed at:
Anegada (British Virgin Islands)
Beef (British Virgin Islands)
Culebra (Puerto Rico)
Grand Turk (Turks & Caicos)
Great Exuma (Bahamas)
Hispaniola (Dominican Republic)
Providenciales (Turks & Caicos)
St. Croix (US Virgin Islands)
St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands)
Vieques (Puerto Rico)

for getting me back online with a login and webspace!
If there’s something I missed here and you’d like to know about it, post here to this thread or e-mail
me and I’ll get to it for you!
I keep saying it but really mean it: THANKS SO MUCH FOR FLYING ALONG!
You too Don Hull & Daryl Tolliver!
I hope we’ve inspired some of you to get out and ‘spread your wings’!
Keep poundin’ them rivets because it’s ALL WORTH IT!
Rosie & Tuppergal
PS: If you happen to see Jailbird or Keys on the ramp, here’s three things you can say to them…and then get a good laugh out of them:
“What Island is this?”
“Are we over water yet?”
