Default Big South Adventure

Big project at work with no vacat since New Year's..... so now that things have settled down a little bit, Andi and I took off to see family and friends. I snapped a few photos along the way!

Plans to leave Monday night were scrubbed by bad weather, but Tuesday dawned clear and cool, so we got up early and headed southeast.

Tailwinds had the happy couple making great time at 9500ft.

We made the turn at Joliet and sped past Gary and the big lake...

My neighbor was a big football star down there.... any guesses?

We stopped for gas at Fremont, OH at their great little airport. An older lady owns the place and insisted on helping me fuel the plane. She just sold one of her late husband's DC-3s and there is a group rebuilding it on the field. This is a real GA airport!

On to the first attraction! Put-in-Bay, OH - scene of some of my less glamorous, but very entertaining moments back more than a few years....

We rented a cart......and got a room at Admiral Brodee's

Andi went fishing.....

I skipped rocks........

More to come!!
