Default What did you do with your RV this weekend (9/16-17/2023)

Sedona is a popular destination for most pilots flying cross country. Our KDVT group has KSEZ in our own backyard only 32 minutes away. We usually have one of every RV in attendance. This weekend an RV7A, RV14A and an RV8A

Default Happenstance.

I was in the FBO checking the latest repair projects and a nice C175 needed a jug. The owner agreed to have it repaired and said he was calling his wife to drive and get him. I offered a RV ride home to KSQI only 18 RV minutes away. The FBO manager said - - "you should take that offer". Whiteside is a nice airport with one new grooved runway and the other nearing completion. Lots of public projects going on around here.

Mike flew the whole way but was invited to do some maneuvering and slow flight making the flight almost twice planned time. It was a perfect day, fun flight and good conversation.

Put in some $6.60 per gallon gas and decided a short 1/2 hour flight maybe all the aviating I will do this weekend.

Congratulation!!!

One point of contention; Even though it is now an aircraft, it will always be a project.

Flew the 2nd Phase 1 flight of my RV-9A. Slow flight, stalls followed by a number of landings in different scenarios and configuration. Super pleased with this plane. Itís kinda like running around in a sports car.

Today was the annual Fall Brat-O-Rama at Steinair, KFBL. Dozens of RVs flying in all morning, hosted by Stein himself. All were invited but the whole show was most broadly represented by the Twin Cities RV Builders Group (Minnesota Wing of Van's Airforce). I had to weave around a series of low clouds til I got a few miles south of KBRD, then it was just the 5 mile visibility from Canada trying to set their country on fire. The weather was otherwise nice in that part of the state. Great people, great conversations.

On the flight back from lunch at Chehalis today, 'ArlingtonRV' and I flew our two RV-8s over the Olympic Mountains to see the new wildfires we spotted on the way down. There are many fires and it doesn't appear they are being fought, probably since they are in the wilderness and not endangering any people or structures.

Looking NW with Mt. Olympus in the background:



Another:



Mt. Olympus in the clear. The fires are on the right edge of the photo:
