June Flight Plans

Mary and I reserved two tickets on a Frontier flight to Denver then on to Portland Oregon for this years BAC Fest.  It was a great deal that worked out to $1271 round trip for both of us, can't beat that.
After going back and forth about Florida properties and the missed trip for Valentines day to Singer Island we decided to take a week in June and fly south. How are these two tied together you ask. We decided to cancel Portland and head south. The ticket money will fuel 08Romeo and we will experience what a flight to North Palm Beach would entail. So, it looks like June will be busy.  The Florida trip to hunt for homes in early June and we have a wedding to attend in New Hampshire near the end of the month.
Fun flying and getting back to taking advantage of GA!!

Looks like fun! One of my buddies flew his Skyhawk from here to Daytona Beach yesterday. That's a lot of flying in one day, but he made it!

We are looking forward to getting some air time in 08Romeo. How many hours did it take him and how many stops? I should only need one stop if the winds play nice.

Gary - It look him seven hours with two fuel stops. His Skyhawk carries less fuel that my Warrior and he won't fly more than a three hour leg without stopping for fuel. From where you're starting, it would knock off about two hours of flight time compared to if I did it. There's nothing like a long ride by GA for a little adventure and I hope that you and Mary have a great trip.

Feel free to stop by or at least le me know when you fly over so I can wave! Should be a great trip.

You guys beer fans? 'Cuz a trip to Portland just isn't complete without trying out some of the (many, many) great local brews!

Tons of other beautiful scenery out that way, too. Definitely drive the historic Columbia River Highway and head over to the Pacific coast / Astoria if you have time.

Geoff, will try and get in touch when we get to our destination.

Steve, Portland will have to be another day. Florida in June is now on the schedule and Frontier already refunded my tickets.

Reading comprehension fail.

Clearly, I was just too excited to suggest all my favorite spots in the Rose City. :)
