Default Double Duty

Wednesday morning it was snowing and blowing at 45 kts in Minneapolis. I thought Fall was over, but thankfully, I was wrong. Everything cleared out and the weekend has been just beautiful.

Andi and I were planning to head south for homecoming at Iowa State to see some old friends at the tailgates. Ames is great for this as airport is only a 10 min walk from Jack Trice Stadium and they recently built a walking path!

We arrived in Ames about 9:15 and enjoyed food, beverage and friends for about 3 hours, then hoofed it back to the airport and headed south right over Des Moines to Osceola, IA where a new buddy, Rambler, was waiting in a van. Rambler was a stray Boxer in Girard, KS and had been hit by a car, breaking his leg/and or pelvis. He is a real nice dog....

It was a bit of a challenge to get him in back, but he slid in and took a look around.

After takeoff, we never heard a peep from him until got bumpy over top of Minne International.

Gotta love direct routing thru the Bravo!

Great trip! Andi told me how much she loves the plane and all the fun things we have been doing with it!

Sorry for the lame pics - we forgot the camera and were using cell phones.
