Default Alpha Flight?

What, no JB or Seismo?

Wishing we were on your wing again for the trip.

You guys have fun and be safe.

L and C

From Rosie: Jim "Jimmyb" Baker thought it best that I get out on my 'own' now that I'm all growed up. Seismo is in training for next Ironman!

Rosie,
If you're over southwest MS around shut down time, drop in on T-36 we got cheap 100LL, ground transportation, close motel, and no fees.

Allen

From Rosie: Thanks for the invite Allen! Looks like we'll be landing Crystal Springs (M11) for our first fuel stop from Pecan Plantation (0TX1)

Default Survival Gear

I have thought about doing this kind of a trip in my 8. Are you able to load up a raft and jackets along with your gear and 2 pax? My thoughts are "where do I put the raft so that I can get it out if I ditch the airplane"?

Sounds like a great time and I will be following you!

Be Safe out there!

Dave

From Rosie: No raft Dave, but I will have three aircraft off my wing

Default Customs

Can't wait for the rest of the write up. Make sure you tell us how the wait was on re-entering the country. There seems to be a lot of thought that customs is making you wait for hours in your plane until they get to you. I know you have to stay in the plane just don't know how long...

Checked in on the biannual "Pirates of the Caribbean" adventure and notice after leaving California in the pre-dawn twilight and making their planned fuel stop at St. Johns, Az, Paul and Victoria are now over New Mexico approaching Texas. What a great day to fly across the southern half of this country! With tail winds and clear skies, it should be a great trip to Homestead. Surface winds are gusting at some locations out west, but I'm sure Paul and Victoria can handle 'em.

Best wishes for an enjoyable vacation, and thanks for allowing us to peek over your shoulders from time to time.

P.S. Photos, we need photos.

P.P.S. Wow, I just noticed this thread already has over 2,800 views and Paul just started this thread two days ago! Paul and Victoria may have to give autographs at their stops because they're so famous.

Rosie has been in Texas for the past 7 minutes!!!! 5 hours and 2 minutes including a fuel stop.

Looks like he will be very close to his 15:00 TX arrival time at KSEP.
