Flight Plans...

Sunday's Trip - I have been watching weather off and on all day checking the outlook for Sunday. It looks to be clearing in time for a trip to KOXB, Ocean City, MD.

Mary and I have planned out some day trips to various locations and Ocean City is on the top of that list. It's a short taxi ride to the boardwalk so once the aircraft is secure we will hoof it on the boards and investigate all the shops and places to eat. I have made the trip to OCMD many times with the Liberty Region Corvette Club and always had a great time. I drove my 90 and 81 vette on the boardwalk in parades and have set out in the sun with the car show crowd, best of both worlds. Liberty did a fine job with yearly poker runs, special parties for members and traveling together as a club to each event. I'll miss the 81 when she's finally gone, but spring time means "for sale' and a nest egg for my first plane.

Short list of trips:

We are planning a trip to Williamsburg, VA in April, Knoebels Park in Pennsylvania, Tangier Island and Gettysburg, PA. A few 3 day weekend trips we have lined up are Louisburg, NC to visit family, Myrtle Beach/Ocean Isle beach to vacation and look for property, Block Island and Martha's Vineyard.

The Big Trip plan for 2007 is for a stop at Williamsburg to visit our friend Susan followed by a stop at Ocracoke for an early morning arrival with a second day of r&r departing late afternoon or early the next morning for Myrtle Beach. At Myrtle we will spend at least two nights departing early afternoon for Bristol, TN and spending a night then heading to KCKB Clarksburg, WVA for a quick stop and go. We will end up in Washington, PA (just south of Pittsburgh) sometime late afternoon to spend a night and visit with friends.

At our PA stop we will make a short road trip to visit a Rotti (Max) thatI was lucky enough to find a great home for with a retired K-9 officer. From our PA stop (KAFJ) we will finally saddle up and head back home to Delaware having added the state of Tennessee, West Virginia and if not already added to the "visited" list North and South Carolina. Total miles for the trip is 1225 and approximately 12 hours of flying.
