Rosie and his PAX have stopped for lunch. They are in the "courtesy" car on the way into town. This was a Planned stop. (Per phone report from Rosie.)


Gary, I'm guessing they went to West Texas Pit Masters for Barbecue. --- Don

Default Day 1: Rosamond to Dallas

Hi All!

It's been a long day and was up at 0400 PDT and now getting online at 2100 PDT; It's been a long but GREAT DAY of flying! Tuppergal got to sleep in as my co-worker Herb Turner and I were up early then airborne by about 0510 (still dark). I had packed the plane the night before so here's our my luggage for the 3-week trip:



We saw the sun rise as we were crossing the Colorado River:



The desert in the early morning is not very colorful. Here's Sedona Airport on the plateau:



And my friend Herb:



And a picture of my standard, no wind, ground speed:



Three hours after departing Rosamond (L00), we were at St. Johns with my longtime friend and airport manager, Gary Liston :



After fueling and a short visit, we continued on, passing just south of Albuquerque (looking north to ABQ):



Not much to see flying eastbound past Albuquerque:



At 11,500' we picked up a NICE tailwind which gave a GREAT groundspeed:

Default Day 1: Rosamond to Dallas

Two hours after leaving SJN, we were on the ground at Plainview (PVW), TX...



...where they were kind enough to lend us the airport car to get something to eat...at Jumbo Joe's!

NO PICTURE AVAILABLE: Left the camera in the car...but you need to stop there!

After leaving PVW, I saw some red stuff on the ground..."What is that Herb?"..."That is red dirt Paul." Duh!



We pressed into the DFW area towards Sycamore (9F9) were I was to drop Herb off....Can anyone out there please point out 9F9 to me?!? Thank goodness for GPS!



Here's the downline into 9F9:



So there I am...two (2) miles to 9F9 and I don't see it...I turn 'downwind based on blind faith....



oh...now I see that little sidewalk of a runway next to the train tracks...here's look back down the runway after landing:



And the train passing by:





After takeoff, I finally 'saw' the airport:



I almost got an 'over the top of DFW clearance' but the 'scud' on the other side was too low so they took me around the north side:
