Talking Trip to a barbershop

I am tired of my barbers. Since I moved from New York City to a NJ province I struggle to find a barber who can keep his/her mouth shut. Recent aerial reconnaissance yielded a barber shop in other state where no appointments were needed. Friday was good (payday), weather shiny and I was stupidly happy. Slipped off work a bit early...

According to the windsock the trip to the barbershop should take 37 minutes.

Past Bowman's Tower, a commemorative monument to George Washington and his army.

Past a celebrity house on the PA side of Delaware River.

Past Doylestown PA airport where hangar spaces are premium.

By a gulag where they make very expensive custom license plates for RVators' cars.

Destination reached. Amish county.

Where is N666BK?

Barbershop is on the other side of the street. Try to cross it... traffic is heavier then on Park Avenue.

Amish babushka almost rode me over with her stallion.

Finally I crossed the street.

This is my barbershop! It took 14 minutes to do the hair and the barber spoke only 4 words spaced 10 minutes apart - how short & thirteen bux... love it and will be back!

It was still plenty of daylight and I took a detour on my way home. Found a swamp with thousands of fat white geese. Spent 15 minutes counting them and herding back to the marshes. Practiced slow flight too...

That's all about barbershop. Next time I will fly to shopping I discovered an airport by a mall.

Smoketown is a great airport. Marlin, the owner is a good friend. His son, Kendall! runs Lancaster Aero, the paint shop on the field that painted our -9A.

Hopefully you had lunch while you were in Smoketown.

I recognize Graterford prison- spent many hours thermalling over it when our glider club was based at Collegeville.

Default most entertaining writeup, and with a sideline... reminder. the spring migrations are underway and the flyways are all cluttered up with non-transponder-equipped feathered traffic. everybody keep your eyes peeled out front esp now and esp around bodies of water...

And there wasn't even a picture of the new cut.

He's done it again! Another one for the bucket list. I'm just wondering where to put the long range fuel tank in the RV-12. Scott, any suggestions?

You're doing it wrong. The whole point of GOING to a barber shop is the ranting of the barber.

That's why during the Vietnam War, I had a crew cut because the more worked up the barber got about hippies and peaceniks, the harder he used the clippers on my head.

Plus, it's the only way to find out what the news is in Mt. Pilot.
