Default First Trip Log

After reading, and being motivated/inspired by, so many great trip logs, it's finally my turn to put up a few pics from a great trip we just took to Oregon in the recently completed plane. I hope there will be many more to come and I hope to get better about taking the right photos, and taking better ones.

It started as a short 2-day business trip to central Oregon. Work got done in one day instead of two. What to do? A call to Wally Anderson at Synergy Air in Eugene (who taught me everything I know about building RVs) and John Stahr (Stahr Design, who helped design my paint job) also in Eugene, revealed they would be around Thursday morning. Off we launched from Prineville to Eugene.

Final approach into Eugene


John's Plane - wow


After visiting with Wally and lunch with John, still looking for something to do, we asked John if he knew anyplace to fly to/stay on the coast. As luck would have it, John recently painted an RV-10 for Doug Neibert, who with his wife Dee owns a great B&B on Oregon Coast (Tyeelodge.com). Make a call, rooms available, weather soon clears to get in to Newport. We're off!

Doug picks us up at the airport and takes us to the B&B. What a great spot!
