About 1.5 miles to the interstate exit, many choices. Travis will take care of you.

Forgot to mention the catfish place at KMVC, just off the north end of the airport.

Now that's as good a reason as any to alter the plan!

Hi Larry,
My 48 State tour was a great time for me and I am certain that you will view it the same. Your 7 day time frame is very ambitious, but if the weather and your stamina permit, I don't see any reason it can not be accomplished as planned.

One change you might consider is substituting Orofino for Lewiston ID, the former being more picturesque as it is located along side of a small river and it has a great pilot lounge.

Good luck and blue skies,
Joe

Joe - Thanks for the tip (I changed to Orofino) and for the help and advice last year with our planning.

Cool Wi

I guess what I was hinting at with the KOSH is if you don't land in Wi how can you claim 48 states.

Bob - excellent catch. Looks like I had 2 stops in Minnesota and skipped Wisconsin of all states. Time to go back and double check every state. Thanks much!

Larry, if you get to the Boise - Caldwell KEUL, and need anything, let me know I always have a car at the airport, tools, and help.

Have fun. Email me for phone number or just email.

Bob,

Wow! That’s a kind offer. Just an RV friendly place to stop would be nice. We’ve modified our planned route slightly to be as efficient as possible. Looking at KMAI Marianna but will let you know if we’re ahead of schedule and can drop in. We’ve got the route down to a manageable 857 miles per day average but know there will be adjustments.

Rockwood,

Thanks also for the support. We’re planning to launch on Friday, wx permitting. But, we’ve told friends and family that is is a pleasure trip and we’re shooting for 48 states but will be fine if we only get 32 or whatever.
