coming home help
I haven't flown much in several years and all of that was very local in Montana. But tomorrow I'm hopefully going to be crossing the country in my new old RV.

Yes We are buying back Aurora. I will be leaving Simpsonville SC (KLUX) to 97MT with stops at various places in between(1680nm). Won't get an early start so won't make it in 1 day. low tome VFR pilot.

Not sure of my timing or exact path yet. Weather and wind will play a factor so I am looking for easy in/out quick stops between Bowling Green, KY, St Louis and Rapid city.

Hope about some input:
1. multiple runways(cross winds are not a rusty pilots friend)
2. courtesy car if I get stuck or need overnight place...maybe hangar even
3. easy morning departure on saturday (no fog)

Thanks everybody

Great to hear your baby is coming back home. I can not help with your question. Did you build an airstrip to go with the ranch?

We built our retirement loghome on a airpark called Cabin Creek Landing 98MT. I?d post a picture but Photobucket has failed me.

You need to change your signature to "Sold and bought back!"

Are you going to be in town tonight?

Brian, this is the best news I have heard in some time. I am so happy for you and your family that you have been able to get your plane back and back on course after the hickup you guys had. Great news.

Litchfield, MN

If you end up shifting your route North due to Wx in SD, I have hangar space in Litchfield, MN (KLJF). The forecast here is good with light wind all day tomorrow. We also have a spare bed and my wife is a pretty good cook. :)

KMVN probably good kbwg to kstl.

I scan for crossing runways, the services ticks at 12/3/6/9 o'clock and touching or in the yellow built up area on sectionals, near highways- best shot quick look at easy stopovers.

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 05:14 PM.
