Default That’s most unfortunate

that the Carolinas ran out. We had started NC but had a ways to go. Several years ago I brought up the programs to a Florida aviation rep at Sun N Fun and he just made a face and blew it off. The VA and SC jackets are the most “expensive” jackets I own, but the programs are a lot of fun and great experiences as you know!

Texas doesn't have a program so I made my own. There are 393 public use airports in Texas and I've visited about 140 so far. I'm not sure what prize I'm going to give myself when I complete it.

I like your approach Greg! I may do the same with Wyoming I live on the state line

Woof! I love this. I've been known to take a day and see how many I can hit. In Texas, this is multiple overnight trips that aren't possible to be "home in time for dinner"...

Maybe if I launched earlier? Packed breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is always fun to talk to the people at the fuel stops. "Where you headed?" Uh, I'm just out doing a lap.

So far it's been almost all normal flying. I've got to start doing collection trips though. I'm even missing a couple in the Houston area. All the Big Bend airports were done in a day trip out of Ruidoso during a Navion convention but the rest of West Texas and the pan handle are going to take some dedicated effort.
