Smile ONLY 11 STATES IN 2 1/2 WEEKS

While Larry New was zipping around the 48 states in 7 days, my wife & i were on a more leisurely adventure. We made 15 stops in 11 states visiting friends, relatives and historical points. NO schedule - NO hurry.

My RV (aptly named VANESSA) just emerged from Art Craft Paint Shop in Santa Maria California and we needed to get it to our new home in Georgia.
here is a link to our route :

(hope it works)
My stats:
Departed Cable Airport KCCB on May 17th.
Miles flown - 3,992
Gas used - 218.97 gal - $1,112.09
Hobbs Hours - 30.8 Tach Hours 28.6
Added 1 Quart of oil

Arrived Perry-Houston GA KPXE on June 4th
Used 2 Courtesy cars, 1 hotel shuttle, 1 taxi and 1 rental car. friends provided transportation at 4 stops.

3 airports charged for overnite parking - 2 @ $5 and 1 @ $7. these appeared to be the most secure.

We had a GREAT adventure. VANESSA performed flawlessly. the wife is now planning new destinations.

Keith,

What I do is put the pictures in a google blog. Super easy to create and free if you have a gmail account.

You don't even have to make it a "pretty" blog. I have one title "Aviation Photos" without text for photos I want to link in VAF. They are super easy to add from google photos. Of course, you can also do a traditional blog and link from the photos back to VAF. That's what I've done for 10 years and never had a broken link. Here's my building and now flying blog: http://larrys-airplane.blogspot.com/. I tried directly from google photos but they kept breaking.

With the photo in blogger, all you do is right click and "Copy Link Address". I do have to resize them in VAF but all you do is find in the link where it says /s1600/ and change to /s800/.

Hope that helps. If it's OK, I'll let you know when we're in town. We do visit as I have many relatives in the area.

We're not far from Austin and both kids (and now a granddaughter) live in Austin so we're up there often. Let me know and we'll find some good BBQ!
