I flew to Catalina several times in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. Last time I was there was probably 2002. Runway used to be in much better shape, and it was always a fun trip. Justin and his clan should be ashamed of the trashy facility they lord over now. I'll probably never return.

I'm sure they have seen it before and obviously knew what they had to do to stop a thief. Any admonishments Scott received were well deserved.

Really? It's Scott's story and I for one appreciate all the detail, pictures and time he took to write about his big adventure for others to enjoy and even to learn from. According to my understanding of his story, he was concerned about the aircraft, became angry, walked it off, made a mistake, contained his anger, apologized, paid his tab, and confessed it all here publicly on VAF. Any further admonishment here is totally undeserved as he has already been forgiven by those who he'd allegedly sinned against. Therefore your comment here is nothing more than a blemish, a cheap shot at the end of HIS fantastic story. I challenge you to apologize, and post on VAF a better story about a bigger adventure, sins and all.

I'm still wondering if he made it home ok to Merced. In the last episode he was flying in the dark over what looked like Alamitos bay heading toward Los Angles and he made the statement "I saw it coming". Hope it wasn't a 747 out of LAX. :eek:

He made it home. I saw his RV-8 at the Half Moon bay airport last Saturday.

Extra dramatic cliff hanger until next years adventures! Roll with it.

Is there going to be a conclusion to this trip across the USA, which has been interesting so far, or are we just waiting for the end of everything? I don't mind which it is, but I'd just like to know.
