Default What did you do with your RV this weekend? (1/8/22 - 1/9/22)

Misty and low clouds here in N.TX. Yuck. I oiled and loved up some tools in the toolbox that needed attention. Cleaned up the workbench in the hangar some and taking the first steps at making work room for a -15. Or fixing the lawnmower <g>
Anybody flying?

Flew down to JNX with a buddy (who has a LongEZ - man, THAT thing is cool) to check out the Low N Slow BBQ joint on the field.

Food was decent. There were RVs a-plenty!

Default Winter flying

Using every reasonnable moment to fly off my first 25 restrictive hours, I waited for the temps to warm to -14C and the winds to weaken down to 10-15 knots Saturday PM. It's not always easy to find decent weather these days.

Took off at 15:10 local and landed at official sunset, 16:15.
Beautiful winter flight at 3000', caught the low sun setting behind clouds while returning to base.
Only 3:45 hours to do before applying for the unrestricted CofA.

Default Ubehebe Crater

Took a friend out to circle Ubehebe Crater in Death Valley, also a circle around Scotties Castle. This was his second ride in an RV, and he’s still got the grin!!!!
