Default Our weekend

Saturday I flew Young Eagles in the morning in our C172, then my wife and I flew the RV-10 to Henderson, NV, then a Lyft ride to the T-Mobile Arena in Vegas where we caught the final show of the Fleetwood Mac tour.

We stayed the night in Henderson then flew back home Sunday, enjoying a hefty tailwind all the way back to KLGB. A fun-packed, flying-packed weekend for sure! Pics to come.

Default Weekend fun

Took some air to air shots of my son Justin in his -4 and Gary, builder of my -7 in his -10. A whole lot of RVing going on.




And we did air to air shots of my friends Stinson Gullwing.

Strictly speaking, it wasn't an RV activity... but I did get in some flying Sunday in a DA40. PTK to HTL and back. First real cross-country flight in a LONG Time.

Default Flying for food

Attended my second South Carolina Breakfast Club meeting in...
North Carolina?! KRUG, aka Mid-Carolina Airport. Delicious, well-attended
gathering on a chilly day in the "Eagles' Nest"...EAA Ch 1083's insulated hangar. Clear, but lumpy skies...dodging the Charlotte Class B airspace.

More condition inspection items completed. Carb and gascolator screens were clean, the inline filter after the fuel selector seemed to have grabbed the gunk.



Fresh Oil and filter, Thank goodness for another clean oil screen!



Lil' dude cleaning the removable panels while I vaccuum and wipe down the inside.
