Our first stop was Danville, KY. KDVK, is a very nice stop. Cheap fuel (under $5) and they even pump it for you as you use their beautiful facilities. Sorry, forgot to take pics.
We travel southwest to our next stop in Carlisle, Arkansas but not before crossing the mighty Mississippi.
Not much in Carlisle except cheap fuel, friendly FBO, and a crew car to go get some good catfish!
Of course Pierre Smith's buddies are there....
We thought of staying the night but we were only 2 hours or so from 52F and there was weather approaching from the west that may have had us stuck for a day or so if we didn't beat it to Fort Worth.
We almost didnt beat the approaching weather...
I was getting continuous reports from local Fort Worth control towers about what kind of weather was there (GO ATC!!). That along with my XM weather picture I was able to press on and make it to 52F.
Just in time it seems....distant lightning to the west.
We made it to Walt's hangar to find our rental car waiting.
A VW Beetle! Cool! We asked for the cheapest car and Enterprise delivered this to Walt.
