Talking Went shopping

There are tons of supermarkets and shopping malls in my area. But to find one in close proximity to a landing zone is a challenge.

This one is too short one way in one way out always packed with helicopters.

A Moth is always on runway 77.

That steel runway looked OK then they put a Space Shuttle right at the numbers.

The Main Lawn is filled with beach goers.

This one looks empty and all right but the conga line at the taxiway looks suspicious.

People waived to me from this field but I need half a day to walk to the closest shopping mall. Thanks guys.

Finally after browsing three states for an hour I found my grocery store.

Where is N666BK?

Oh the woes of having to go to the grocery store and do hand to hand combat in the parking lot! Your solution is perfect.

Which is the airstrip? This might be handy for us westerners venturing east who land on highways to access the local general store (Fields, OR).
