The picture of your daughter in your first post with a crab in one hand and hammer in the other is a crack up. What a fun trip. Make the most of time like that - they grow up fast!

Nice meeting you and your daughter Andy. It is a small world. Next time you fly down to TRL, fly into our place. If the hangar door is open, we're home.

Andy, What an amazing trip with your daughter!! The tour of the ATC center would send me to nerd heaven. And the crabs look pretty good too.
Hope we get to catch up soon.

Were thinking of visiting Virginia - someplace we can fly to from N. Carolina and about 2-3 hours driving from Dover so we can meet up with my daughter and granddaughters. Wed all stay the weekend... have any suggestions where we should go?

Fair Winds,
Sandra

Bud, Wilco!

Sandy, hope to meet up again as well! I wish I had a recommendation but really just winging it.

Hope wanted to eat in and apparently has never had Dominos before, after all of the days walking I didn't mind taking it easy.

Crabandy,
Boy she is growing up so fast.
Great times.

When I finish my RV-7A I plan to fly it into the SFRA to visit my son. Never done this before so I find your trip report particularly interesting. I was thinking I'm required have 12" N-number letters. I notice you don't so curious if this requirement is true?

Also appreciate the travel reports. I can't say this enough but they really help inspire those of us in the middle of building our RVs.

UPDATE: I should have known this has already been covered on the VAF. Good to see I don't need the 12" numbers for the SFRA. Go VAF!

Great trip report!

I've logged quite a few flights in that NWA 747 and have time in all three seats.

Regards,
Tom
