I completed the pre-flight including checking and sumping fuel. Aeroways has screwed up my last two fuel orders, one was short ten gallons and the other overfilled by at least ten. It really didn't matter but on the real hot days I like to keep the load as light as possible.

|Our Motor Home|
I guess we broiled out there for 3 hours or so then called it a day. It's only 4 1/2 miles back to our motor home so it was a quick dash and change for the flight home. I had to self serve fuel today since OXB was having a problem with the 100LL fuel truck. I finished up and taxied out for the ride home. I headed on my planed course that I had filed; KOXB ATR DQO KILG. I guess I was 10 south of ATR when I called Dover approach to pick up my clearance for Wilmington. I was cleared direct from my present position and cleared to 5000 feet.
