Default Great

Good picture!! That is a beautiful location and the temperatures must be a little cooler than TX. Have a good trip!

We have started our summer travels and are in Steamboat Springs, CO. Planning on working our way NW next weekend.

I can only hope we can grow up to be just like Tom & Bonnie with their summer adventures.

We're safe on the ground at the mother ship for the next couple of days. The run up from Medford was pretty low level following I-5, worked well. There totally comes a time to put down all the toys, instruments and data to put eyes on the road ahead, and the 'out' still in sight. We are hooked up with Dave and Alena Bono for a major part of the rest of the adventure.

The Victoria Flying Club was a good place to tie down in Victoria when we were there last and the car rental places will deliver to you there.

I'll be up there again at the end of July. Victoria is a nice place to visit.



If you want to have lunch at Friday Harbor, do it on the way to Canada, not on the return. The Canadians warned me it was the least friendly US spot for Customs, and I think they were correct...

Good tips. Tanya found Friday Harbor customs very grumpy when she just called to inquire a few days ago, already hatching a different reentry plan.

Both Bellingham KBLI and KCLM are very friendly in the custom department. Enjoy your stay here.

Boy is this a change!! You guys are wearing jackets and we're roasting to death in Colorado. Looks like you're having a good trip. We got beat up coming back from San Diego yesterday... So many fires along the way, the state is burning up.
Be safe and have fun in the Great White North. Keep those jackets handy. See you at OSH.

Congrats on the thousand hour mark. I need do some more flying you're starting to catch me.
