Default Sun n Fun 2016 RV style



View in the back yard in Ohio as we prepared to depart this stinking April snow for Florida.


Heading South! Goodbye snow!

What? Ice and turbulence?


Well, there is a bit of ice but the ride was smooth.


Great push from the wind gods! 60-65 kts as we leveled at 11,000 ft.


Smooth and clear as we crossed KY, TN, NC and into GA.


Made it to Athens, GA in 2 hrs 15 minutes from Northwest OH!


Gotta love the food at S n F! More lipitor, please!


Great looking rides!


Perfect weather all week for flying.

Man, I love RVs!



We were going to head back to OH on Saturday but the headwinds were not looking good, even for an RV. The following picture my friend sent from the hangar back home reinforced the thinking that it was time to have a beer and spend another day in FL.






The steed awaits her signal to awaken and take flight Northbound at sunrise on Sunday the 10th. We actually stayed in Zephyrhills where my wife's parents stay for the winter. Great airport and lots of skydiving. Short drive from there to Lakeland.




Beautiful sunrise over central FL.




Nice weather over the southern half of the country on Sunday.







Same old weather as we left it North of the Smokeys and in Ohio.






Well, welcome to Ohio in April! Winds were 120 to 210 variable gusting to 26. Neither runways 6 or 24 looked attractive at home but it ended as another successful trip. Now counting the days until OSH!

Nice ride David! What a contrast between OH and FL! I see you have a camera mount on right wing. Did you make any videos?

Good eye! I use the mounts more for form fun. Shot some short videos from inside but I haven't done any editing yet.

Default great trip report :)

Nice work. Mission accomplished. I look forward to some fun trips to the big fly-ins. Not sure I will be able to get my wife onboard. Maybe if the accommodations had the word "Spa" or "Resort" in the title. How thick was the cloud layer coming back in? Did you pick up much ice on your wings?

We went to Sugar Shakers every day for lunch. The London Broil and chicken were absolutely fantastic, as well as their salads. Oshkosh could learn a thing or two about good food from SNF!

Might I suggest putting the Petit Jean, Arkansas fly in on your calendar.

That looks like the FlyQ Pocket app that is free for AOPA members.
