Default BBQ-1, A quick run for some NC BBQ

Last Sunday, while having to fly off some time solo for the insurance company in the new -10, I needed to come up with somewhere to go. After a quick stop in western NC, then over the hills to N. Wilkesboro, and then a BBQ pick up in Lexington and a photo op with my bro and spouse. (Maybe one day they will even get off the ground). After packing the cooler, turned towards home to make dinner with the crew. Really loving the room and the ride in the -10.

Default Nice bird.

I love that 10. It belonged to my brother Tim Morris. I recognized "Betty Boop" on the tail. Tim did it in memory of our mother Betty.
Tim really missed his 8.

Default For the next BBQ trip to NC..

Fly another 15 minutes east to Gilliam McConell airport "Pik-n-Pig" and have BBQ at our favorite NC fly in restaurant..we go there often and there usually usually a bunch of planes. Arrival/departure fly-bys often requested by the owner!

I get so many comments on the -10.
It's a great example of the model, and Tim really cared for her well - it really shows ---- I feel bad, I need to go clean the bugs off, but I try to fly every chance I get
Clean or fly? Humm...

I know how he feels about his -8...
I miss my -8, too....

Two thumbs up for the Pik-n-Pig!

BTW, the airport is 5NC3 and it is not on many GPS's. (35-20-30.0000N / 079-26-13.0000W)

Although it is a private airport, permission is not needed to land there, if you are going to the restaurant, which is on the airport, mid-field.

What's the Airport Code for G. McConell?
Always ready to try another NC BBQ establishment.

Guys in Atlanta don't understand why I have to go so far for BBQ. I tell them; " you can get good BBQ almost anywhere, to get Great BBQ, you gotta go to NC"

Winston-Salem is closest for our side of High Point.
Wake / NCSU Saturday afternoon and Dave Mason in High Point Saturday night. Probably will check in on the new owner of 97DW also. He is in Mt. Airy.
