Default Im on the way....

This morning I left home to cross the Atlantic in my RV-8, fly around the US and finally end up in Oshkosh.
Some time ago I never thought about flying extended legs over water, others did it and it fascinated me ever since.
Fast forward: Im already in Wick, Scotland and tomorrow Im planning to fly to Reykjavik and Kulusuk in Greenland.

Here is a link for my Inreach tracker:

Good luck with the weather Hermann!

Did you try the Old Pulteney at the Norseman? - Wick's finest.

'Hope to see you at OSH and hear about your voyage.

Great to see you're on the way Hermann! Remember - you and your RV-8 are welcome at my place outside of Chicago if you need a place to stay while you're in the area.
