Default Greeneville TN trip

We ended up flying into KDKX on Thursday. That?s still one of the nicest small airports around. And Thursday-Sunday cost a total of $10 in overnight fees. We parked next to a transient RV-10. But it departed before I could check it out.

Enterprise in downtown Knoxville picked us up and let us drop the car at KDKX when we were done with no drop charge.

On Sunday, we flew to KAVL. In spite of the AOPA complaints, Signature Flight was fine. We purchased fuel, so we paid only a $13 overnight fee and an airport infrastructure fee. They were really busy with the jet set, so I see why piston singles might not be their target market!

The flight back to KDPA on Monday was uneventful. But I sure wish I had that RV climb rate. With the density altitude what it was, the Arrow started at about 700 FPM and was wheezing by the time we got to 8000.
