Default What did you do with your RV this Weekend (3/6 - 3/8)

Since I am often the starter of these threads, allow me to start this one on Friday rather than Saturday or Sunday...

Because of some pending rain, I opted to fly today. I hope to go to the Ice Cream Social in KIYK tomorrow, but it sounds like the ceilings may be too low. We'll see.

Sooo... I decided to go to Corona, CA (KAJO) for lunch today. It was a mediocre lunch, but a good excuse to fly anyhow. From there, I decided to go get some gas at Flabob (KRIR). Pretty quiet there, other than a Navion and a Pitts flying around. (BTW -- Does anyone know if the restaurant at Flabob is any good?) Fueled up, and headed back home.

Total was only about 1.2 hours of flying, but it was great to get the RV out. Hoping to get it out again tomorrow for KIYK, but seems unlikely based on the current forecast...

I hope that everyone has a great weekend of flying and building. Looking forward to hearing some updates!

Flew into the OSU fly-in at KSWO, flew a bit of formation on the way home.

I connected the battery maintainer to my RV this weekend.

I am sick and was not able to fly in the beautiful weather that we had Sunday 03-08-2020.

Default KAEJ for breakfast

Took a buddy of mine to Buena Vista for breakfast at the Roosters Crow. Great place. He flies C-17s for the AF, first time he had flown an RV. Grins all around.
