    Beale Street Music Festival 2018

    Erica and I had planned for several months to take a long weekend to go down to Memphis and enjoy the Beale Street Music Festival.  I was able to use some hotel reward points and take  a sizable chunk out of the hotel bill, which can get pretty high downtown during the festival. With the...

    Morocco – Day 2 – Into the Sahara

    Today was our first day to head out into the Sahara.  Before heading out, I needed to take my first lesson in Morrocan economics.  Morroco is a cash driven country, and apparently, this extends to travel tours.  I learned this the hard way as the tour guide expected our payment for the 3-day tour in...

    Solo to Gimlin

    Weather was perfect today, and even though I had the plane scheduled for a weekend trip later in the day, I decided it was too good an opportunity to fly over to Gimlin (18MO) for their pancake breakfast.  This was also my first time flying N2613L without anyone else in the airplane.

    After getting signed off yesterday, Erica and I decided it was time for us to go for a ride together.  I picked Flippin as a destination as it was > 50nm (to log as Cross Country) and it was where here dad learned to fly. The key to the fuel pumps at Willow did not...
