Yeah...problem is, my wife can't come along and we have rule about everyone being in the plane except her (morbid though it is...we stick to it).

Default Room at Rockefeller Center

I just cancelled my room at the center. I don't have much schedule flexibility, so the weather is making it difficult for me.

Default Extra room available or unfortunate cancellation?

My wife and I are driving to PJ2016 and this will be our first visit to the flyin. We weren't sure we were going to be able to make it so we did not reserve early enough to get a room at Lodge etc.

We don't really know the lay of the land or the events so we played it safe and have a room reserved Friday and Saturday nights in Morrilton, AR but would much rather stay closer and with RV'ers.

If you have a house with an extra room that we could rent or think you may cancel a room reservation (wx etc) at PJ state park lodge etc., please let me know.

Looking forward to it!!!

Here is some surrounding airports reporting WX:
  1. Russellville, AR (12 nm NW):
    http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/laun...=KRUE&state=AR
  2. Clinton, AR (35 nm NE):
    http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/laun...=KCCA&state=AR
  3. Hot Springs, AR (40 nm N)
    http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/laun...=KHOT&state=AR

Keep in mind Petit Jean is up on a mountain bluff approx. 900-1000 feet above the surrounding terrain. There is a river flowing at the base of the mountain so there is a high likelihood some of the low lying airports down in the valleys will report fog in the morning while it may be clear at Petit Jean.

Hopefully the Arkansas contention will pipe in with some details.

I have been using Weather Underground website to keep track of their local Wx. In the 10-day forecast, I customize what I see so that it shows Dew Point. Cloud base can be estimated from dew point spread. Typically 4.4-degrees F per 1,000 to cloud base.

The local Weather Underground forecast is around 90% correct for where I live over the past 2+ years.

Default We just canceled

Due to the Friday forecast we just canceled our Friday night room.
I hated doing it. Might fly over Sat. For a few hours.

We have about 500 foot ceilings and 1/2 mile this morning.

Hoping it lifts enough to get out even IFR in a few hours.

Has anyone shot the RNAV approach into Petit Jean?
