Thank you Gary, I was having a hard getting the pilot of 628PV to look like Paul.

I actually left Thursday morning and took off at 7 am. The two Sault Ste Maries were my custom airports and on the Canadian side I picked up my stored emergency equipment. Thanks again Terry. Two student pilots were awaiting me to help with the hangar and upcoming issues. A short talk in the airport coffee and I was on my way again, La Grande Riviere CYGL. Enroute I thought why stay there overnight when Iqualit is reporting fog the next morning. So I just refueled and flew to Iqualit - another 4 hours. Man - this was a long day, three landings with customs, refueling, flightplan filing and long flights of course. Tomorrow I will be at the airport early and as soon as the weather looks good I will head towards Greenland.

Goatflight, sorry to leave early, hope you didn´t waste too much time searching.

I like to see pics from the Hudson river, for a moment I was thinking to go there again with Tobias.



Two very motivated future pilots

Default Progress

It looks like Hermann has landed in Kanger already (BGSF). Great progress on his journey back home

Good luck on the rest of the trip and stay safe!

I couldn't get out there until 8:30, but no worries. It's always worth the effort to patrol the homebuilt area. I'm still catching up from the trip, so I'll get your photos in the mail Monday.

Hermann and Miles: the thumb drives with photos and video were mailed to each of you today. Let me know when you get them.

Default Home safe

Maybe this should be in the "Arrived safe from Oshkosh" thread, but I see from the tracking that you are safely back home.
It was great to meet you in California and sorry that I missed you at Oshkosh.
The tracking just shows what you have achieved with your self-built RV-8 in only a short few weeks.
You'll have some great memories.
