Yesterday I made the short hop from Sault Ste Marie CYAM to Sault Ste Marie Sanderson KANJ to clear US customs. From there I headed towards Bismarck KBIS, passed some rainshowers and arrived in good weather there. I was parked right in front of the FBO and so left for the hotel. In the evening I checked the weather and noticed that CB´s are forecasted in the vicinity and severe storms more to the south. It didn´t feel right and at 10:30 pm I headed back to the airport to get a hangar for the Skyrunner.
Next morning I planned for Wendover KENV instead of Helena due weather. However I flew into some rain and drizzle with decreasing visibility and had to start maneuvering. I passed an airfield and should have landed to sit out the worst but didn´t. Finally I made it through but lost time and range and decided for a fuel stop at Custer KCUT not before having a look at the Mt. Rushmore Monument. The last flight was very bumpy but with perfect visibility.





Approaching Wendover KENV over the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Hermann- where are you headed currently? Looks like you made it to NV, wondering if you are headed up to the mothership or elsewhere.

Sorry Hermann for not catching up to you with a sleeping pad and steak!
Prost!

No problem, things doesn't always go as planned. I can go to town for dinner with some pilots here.
And yes it is Johnson Creek.

I made some new friends in Johnson Creek, we don?t have these kind of airfields in Europe and this was a real new experience. I might try another field in Idaho soon.

Sunday I set off for an airport near Seattle and initially only made it to Yakima KYKM. I took the opportunity and refueled while I was there. Checked the weather, but it didn?t look right over the Cascade Mountains. A friend was waiting and gave me very accurate weather updates and recommendations. I set off and initially didn?t follow his advice hoping for a shortcut. I ended up going south again (he was right) and in fact lost some time. At least I past Mt. Rainier and got some pics. Finally landed at Arlington KAWO late afternoon.

Next morning we met at Arlington for Breakfast, chatted a bit - you guess about what - and flew to Friday Harbor FHR. He in his Bonanza and I followed in my -8i. Some more aviation talk there and I was very impressed about his aviation knowledge. Whatever I asked there was an immediate answer or explanation. He is a real aviation expert!! And he offered me a hangar in Boulder City should I pass there - I will.

I ended up today in Anacortes 74S.


Saturday evening at Johnson Creek
