Russki, not all IMC... the entire trip has been a mix of IFR and VFR. There have been a couple legs that I have done RFR (Russian Flight Rules) if you know what I mean! LOL


We have been so busy on this trip the autopilot really comes in handy so that I can take a nap now and then! Hahaha

Jim, you need to stop by the hangar on a Wednesday night to catch up on your drinking! Haven't seen you in too long!

Here are a couple of more quick videos for you guys to watch. I hope you're enjoying them.

Doc, you really know your birds! I guess that's because you've been flipped it so many times! Lol

Hi John,

Looks like you timed it just right, was supposed to be sunny all day but cloud/fog rolled in around 11am this morning.

Hope you are having a safe flight!

Mike

Like I always say, I would rather be lucky than good anytime!

We are in Bellingham, Washington now. Made the trip from Your place in Nikiski, AK (PAEN) to here (KBLI) in exactly 9 hours with stops in Yakutat and Ketchikan. I filed IFR on the last leg, eliminating the need for two customs stops. Had to climb to 13,000’ for a bit to avoid clouds and ice. It was mighty cold up there. The OAT showed minus 8 degrees Celsius for a bit. I take the heater box out for the summer and I was wearing shorts! Brrrrrr!

Thanks for the hospitality buddy! The crab legs were great! Glad Russki left a few for us!

Right now I’m doing some flight planning... I have never been to Jackson Hole before. Maybe we will stop there on the way to Oshkosh? I like the idea of visiting a “cow-town” along the way. Does anyone have any ideas on where might be good?

Right now It is looking like a Saturday evening or Sunday morning arrival at Oshkosh.

What a great trip this is!

I will pick up some tasty beverages for the beer tasting on Sunday.

See you all there!

CJ
