Default Home safe from LOE? Please check in here...

When you get home from LOE'07 could you please give us a shout here so we'll know you're home safe? Thanks.

Best always,
Doug

I made it, but it's not really a cross country for me.

5.5 hours of smooth flying back to NE with a 30+ MPH tail wind. Beautiful cloud formations along the way, a great day to fly.

Thanks DR, for helping to put on such a great flyin. A good time was had by all in our "group". Very nice to put faces with screen names, and to have major contributors to this forum be recongized for their efforts.

VERY cool of you to recognize the 82 year old B-17 crewman / WWII POW survivor / RV builder and pilot who flew solo to LOE. Very classy of everyone to give him a standing O too. Well done.

BTW, I'm still holding my raffel tickets. I'm sure Russ Davies winning the Garmin 496 was a total mistake, and he'll give it to me (the rightfull owner) in a few days.

Although we're not really home yet (I've got a work project in Phoenix for the next week or so), we made it to our post-LOE destination. We left as a six-ship group that included us, the Schneiders, the Woods, the Rosaleses, Leland & Andrew, and the Murdocks (father & son ?). It was a beautiful flight to DVT. After breakfast all but the Millses and Schneiders continued on to CA.

This was my second trip to LOE but my first in my own plane with my wife. Had a great time catching up with friends and also making some new ones!!

Default Back at ADS

Got home just after Doug. The Regional Approach controller for Addison was so busy that I never could make contact and ended up calling Addison Tower direct. Nice flight. Great weekend.
