Looking at the weather, arrival after 12 looks best. Launch from Dallas is good pretty much anytime, but no place to arrive until it clears a bit. Glad I packed for all weather.

Unlike Dallas, in Austin we are on wrong side of the line of rain that does include some thunderstorms. We will be cooling our heels for a bit longer but expect to make it this afternoon, even if we have to go west first to get around the back side of the line.

It was a good time as always. We had a fantastic time talking with old and new friends. I think our first year on the mountain was 2009...

We had an absolute blast this weekend. We made many new friends and are already looking forward to next year. As I type this Kira is sitting in front of me waiting on her ball to be thrown. It seems we?re more worn out than she is from this weekend.

Big shout out to Bill and all of the volunteers who make this event happen.

(Beware, Dog people!)

As far as we're concerned, Kira stole the show! Your investment has been worthwhile. We were impressed from across the creek while she ignored all other people and dogs while following up the boulders at the waterfalls. I didn't carry a long enough telephoto lens to share.

Bonus images of that girl!

"Really, I didn't make that mess. I just like the smell of beer and decided to drop under Andrew's airplane where the foam drain is! We need to train those humans how to poor a proper beer."


"I am DOG, and I love my MAMA!." Really, this is the real deal. 16" paw to paw, waiting for the trainer to flinch. Two girls in lock step.



"Did someone say Cheese!? The good Wisconsin kind? Ron, do you like dogs, because they LOVE you! I can help with that cheese."



Ok, Dad also had a part in the magic, but this looked like a girl operation .

Who said you need an airplane to have fun at Petit Jean.

Thanks Bob for clearing us on the runway. Thanks Scroll for video

Word is that the whole ramp Could hear Kathy screaming at 120 MPH as PIC.

Default We don't need no steenking fuel!

First time visitor this year, but definitely will not be the only time, Petit Jean is a must-go on the list! Another year, maybe two, and I'll bring my son Collin along for the fun.

I love my long-range tanks on my 9A, I departed from my home strip out here near Midland TX Friday morning with 68 gallons on board, flew to Fayetteville for lunch with a friend and then hopped down to Petit Jean for the main event. Flew a short hop while there after getting my prop balanced, and then departed Sunday morning to Hot Springs for lunch with some other friends, then home again - without ever buying a drop of fuel. Landed with an hour and a half still in the tanks, life is good.

Default Petit Jean

This was my first time at Petit Jean and I will definitely be back. Everyone was friendly and it was a fun weekend. It was good to see so many RV's and the nice people who own and fly them.
