Talking First cross country or How to Burn Paycheck

With this in mind I planned my first cross country trip. Intentions were to double the distance but vacation request was denied and the trip was shortened in half.

There were several contributing factors. I just hit big 50 and still didn't grow up. Paul Dye did 50 rolls and loops on his 50, Rosie threw a big Vegas party worth 50G, what would I do? Let's log 50 hundred miles of high quality x-country flying and spend 50 crispy twenties on gas. Great idea! Extra holiday day earned coupled with two weekends will make the trip for grown kid possible. Did I mention the beach?

Early Friday morning I beat all the traffic to the airport. Anyone can do it at 3 am. 50 minutes drive. Plane was fueled weather checked. There was a front somewhere over Continental Divide but I am still one day away from it. Plus I know at least two people who can influence weather if I give them at least 50 hours advance notice.
