First Overnighter....

Yep, planning for our first overnighter. Mary and I have decided to visit our friend Susan in Williamsburg, VA. I confirmed our hotel reservation at the Hampton Inn, booked the car that will be at the airport waiting and cleared the insurance qualifications in the club aircraft by faxing in my log book copies to show the 5+ hours dual in type.

Now on to the fun stuff! I worked up a flight plan on the AOPA planner, plugged in my aircraft info and completed a weight and balance on a excel spreadsheet. Mary and I will be posting our trip journal after our return home. Here is the flight plan as of today.

I decided to steer well clear of the ADIZ and instead fly along the Maryland/Virgina coast of the Chesapeake Bay. I have run both routes and there is no real time saved. We will take a peek at Tangier Island (KTGI) another place we want to visit located in the Bay north west of Accomack(KMFV) and look for the campers at CheeryStone, where some of our friends rent cabins and spend time fishing. A lot of sight seeing and I hope some great photo's. WX is looking very good for both Friday and Saturday.
