Default What did you do with your RV this Weekend (5/1/21 - 5/2/21)

Getting it started.

Me? Nothing. So many extra paper routes in the sim over the last six days I'm seeing crooked. Five more this coming week. I miss my RV....

Default Minneapolis out & back

The "vaccination celebration tour" continued Friday with an out and back trip to Minneapolis to see family & friends. A beautiful day of flying over the Mighty Mississippi as well as some cool solar farms. The selfie was taken as I passed the 100 hour mark in the time machine...the RV grin is still evident. Next on the tour...Florida!

GoPro 360 Max. Rylos just suck. Insta 360 R is also good. NFlight screw-on spud mounts.

I got the Rylo before that GoPro was released, I think. The GoPro looks pretty cool.

Flew up to Bridger Montana for the first time. This marks the first time the RV has been to a new state!

Also the first time on a smaller runway. 3400' x 42' Certainly not small by RV standards but it is small compared to everything around here!

Default How about the last two weekends?

On the 17th we flew from N Florida (FL10) out west to do the national parks with a stop at Roswell to see... well you know. Anyway, from there to Flagstaff and rented a car, then off to the Grand Canyon for three days, then flew to Moab to see the Arches, Canyonlands, Zion Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Capitol Reef. Then we flew on Friday April 30th to Carlsbad to see the Caverns, and finally on Saturday flew home. Great trip, but **** flying weather most of the way in both directions. Incidentally, If you're going to see Canyonlands, make sure to do it before seeing the Grand Canyon!

Would love to see some pictures. Sounds like a great trip.

Some say if there are no pictures, it didnt happen? (Just joking)
