South Jersey Regional at OXB

After swapping a few text messages Dave S and I agreed on a meet up for dinner.  The plan was to meet him and his Bride Lynn for dinner at the Harborside Bar and Grill in west Ocean City, MD.  Dave gave a heads up that there would be eight in the party heading down from KVAY- South Jersey Regional.
This was an easy gig for Mary and I, a ten minute drive from home to the airport.  We headed over to OXB in time to hear Dave call 14 miles out of Ocean City.  The fly guys of South Jersey made their way in, one by one.  First Dave in his Cherokee 235, followed by Michael in his Arrow and the last couple in their Cessna 182.
I had room for two in our ML320 and the rest of the group piled in one of the Express Rent a Car Ford Expeditions supplied by Don. It was a short hop to Harborside for great eats and even better company.
We all headed back to the airport and said our goodbyes. Mary and I watched as one by one they taxied for departure.  We headed out and parked on the airport road as we watched all three climb out for home.

I love this. Just like RVers arranging to meet somewhere, you fliers meet up for good food and great conversations. I figure you probably solved the world's problems like we always do.

RV'ers, Corvette clubs, boaters, pilots. We all have the same thought process, meet, eat and share information. Oh, and yes, we solve world issues. :)
