Planning that first flight as a "New Pilot" !
Mary and I have discussed many different locations for that "first flight". I would like to head north to KWBW (Wilkes-Barre, Wyoming Valley) since this is where my family is from. We also would like to go to Block Island, one of my Brides favorite places. I think the Island will hold for now and we may start off with a short trip to Cape May, NJ and visit one of our favorite restaurants the Oyster Bay.
A short hop to Cape May from Brandywine Airport, 40 minutes, a great dinner and a stroll along main street along with visiting the few shops on the boardwalk. I was trying to get away today (Saturday) but the wx looks like a "no-go" so maybe next weekend. I think Monday we will try for an hour or two of checking out the local sights after an early departure from work!
When we post I think we will do as a few other husband wife traveler's do and that is changing up the type set. I'll continue in this format while Mary can post in Italics. This will give us a chance to present both sides of the adventure, left seat and right seat.
We hope to be posting details soon. The inspiration to keep the travel journal now that flight lessons are completed has come from various journals I have read and enjoyed over the last year. A few of my favorites are; Bo and Sandra Boggs, "Flights of the Mouse" and Phil and Nancy Verghese, "P Factor" both great reads if you have some time.
As a newly minted Private Pilot I look forward to adventures and destinations that Mary and I can share with our friends!
