With a number that high Turbo, you must have been living in fear of an internal battery failure resetting the unit to zero....

Default ... And Miles To Go Before I Sleep - Robert Frost

Ed:
You're certainly living the last line of the poem. Your tally speaks volumes about the durability of the RVs as well as your skill as a pilot. Congratulations.

Default Trip Odometer through the end of March 2013

Turbo, I have a 'quarterly' update on our trip odometer to date:



We leave on April 6th for our 1-month-long vacation to the Antilles, and I'm hoping that puts me WAY AHEAD of you Rosie

rosie, sounds like you will be jumpn ahead on your island trip.

i have a current island guide if you need one.

spray down that engine compartment with corrosion x to help the salt air issue for such a long trip in the islands.

enjoy the under water environment too.

lookn forward to your trip thread.

Turbo,

That is simply very amazing... There are pilots flying for the regionals with less time than that.

Turbo, I don't know you, but I like you.
Great accomplishment especially running avgas/Mogas.
I am way behind you and I don't think I am gaining on you.
Now that you have a worthy challenger (Rosie) it will be even more fun Than ever.
Keep it up!

Default This is Incredible !!

.... After looking at this thread, I became curious as to the numbers on my airplane (The 9-A). I fly a lot, about 300 Hrs. annually. This being said, it seems I have flown my RV-9A about 86,000 miles in the last 2&1/2 years. I hadn't thought about in in terms of miles, but that is a lot of coast to coast trips. I sure love these little airplanes. Allan....
