Talking Went Shopping 2

Very recently I?ve moved. My village doesn?t a grocery store residents usually drive to either Vernal or Green River WY to shop. I looked at the map checked the turbulence forecast and decided to fly to Lander KLND. Road to my airport was passable.



I trumped a drift over taxiway with my car



checked the runway



and put the preheater to work.




Stayed lower to avoid the turbulence.





I had to climb to 10 thousand to hop over a pass.



Took a little beating




It was calm and smooth over Lander.

Pretty little town.



Good fuel prices. Courtesy car. It took me twenty minutes max to get my groceries.



Road back was a bit bumpy.





This is Green River Intergalactic Spaceport.



The grocery run was a quick three hours hop. Both ways. Will repeat in two weeks

Vlad think you'll need to upgrade your 9A with some larger tires!

I once stopped for gas at an airport in Utah and the nice young lady living at the airport with her husband said the nearest grocery was 80 miles away.

Still looking for ?Braden West?. Hard to beat that one. Lander looks more like Allentown Queen City
