It 2:45 for me too, but I will do it if the weather permits!
No for me. We flew down to St Augustine this past weekend. May do another Angel Flight in a couple of weeks. Gotta get some stuff done around the home.
Hopefully you guys get clear skies so everyone can go.
I can't say for certian yet, too far out. But the flight has been plotted. If I'm not there, you'll know that I hadda work and can't make it.
Looks like Friday will be the best day to go from Florida into the Carolinas, so I'm hoping to make it...
Can you camp under the wing at Wilgrove?
I don't know if anyone ever has or if the mgr would allow it (I honestly don't know), but I do know right now it's forecasted to be about 25 over Friday nite
the other thing I'd look out for, if they even let u camp there, are fire ants. they are everywhere, gotta be real careful.
Weather is looking good for Saturday, I'll be the one in the flying pumpkin
Well, looks like I'm not going to make it. I'm having too much fun in trapped by a cold front in South Florida (Everglades City).
Will be heading north over the weekend, but too slow.
I'd say it's looking good so far, but we know what happens...
<<sad face emoji>>
no, what happens?
The weather somehow turns to feces. Although I will say it looks good so far...
r u coming? airborne feces notwithstanding?
Yeah, as long as the weather looks good tomorrow morning. Anyone else coming?
me. maybe you. looks like @kc4wsd and his kid are coming. @TRocket …..that's right, a once in a lifetime cameo by PoA's own TRocket.
for anyone else flying in, be on your A game, there's towers to look out for, lots of traffic on a nice Saturday afternoon, and then you have to try and land there...…..
You make it sound so inviting...
lol yeah, well, I just don't want someone flying an hour+ only to have them say "you want me to land on THAT??!!??". y'all have been warned!
@eman1200 and others, Austin is flying Cedar Rapids - Chicago - Richmond - Newark today. He's scheduled to non-rev back to GSO tonight, leaving Newark at 8:20P. We have the '172 reserved until 3P, so if the weather cooperates on him, we'll see y'all tomorrow.

I'm a go at this point. I won't be able to stay long, I have to be back tomorrow, Should be there around 11am-ish.
5 and a half hours of flying to be there an hour? Good thing I like to fly.
pizza is showing up around noon, maybe just after. will u still be there?
I’m out. I scheduled the plane wrong and for some reason missed that my end time was 10:30 AM, and people scheduled after me.
So is there an FBO or something we can congregate in or just all outdoor festivities?
maybe. Don’t order extra for me at any rate. I’m doing the no carb thing.
there isn't much of anything left lol. just a picnic table mostly. which is in front of the 'FBOish' type place. there is ample parking on the other side of the runway from the fbo building, just depends on how wet it is. so r u coming?
I probably won't need it, but just curious if the 100LL pump is still operational?
I don't know. I asked someone based there and he didn't know either lol. I was there a week ago and they WERE operational. I checked notams and no mention of fuel or lack of. KAFP is close by at $4.19 and EQY is much closer at $4.70.
Ok, so it's 2/22/20 around 2:00ish?
Wx looks good but wife is down with the flu. If she let's me go, I'll be there.
As always, wear a Gold Seal cap or shirt and lunch is on me.
eh I've been saying 12-2 but there may still be people hanging out at 2, I have no idea really lol. and I, ahem, still don't have a gold seal shirt ahem, otherwise I'd be wearing it!
12, eh. Ok, that sounds better anyway. And I'll bring you something, eman. That'll save me from trudging to the PO anyway.
I'll be the one in this. I'm starting a pool to guess the number of bounces I make.
I'm just hoping for winds out of the north. Landing to the south looks.....sporty.
I just hope I'm there before both of u so I can get it on video mmwwahahahaha
Landing north isn’t too bad. Never done it the other way. Taking off north in a 150, with an overweight CFI, in the middle of summer is not something I ever wanted to do after the first attempt. Those trees at the end of 35 came up a lot quicker than expected lol.
I see the tic-marks on the sectional, but knowing that this place is going out of business, is it reasonable to expect they have fuel?
And what's the plan for food?
They had fuel last week, that’s all I know. Supplied a few other local options with prices above.
I’m bringing 3 pies, will decide if we need more later tonight. If it turns out we need a LOT more, we can order more and have it delivered.
Sounds like I should relax more and not head out so soon. I'll aim to arrive around noon.
I don't know if I can justify the expense of flying all the way in from JQF...but could probably spring for enough gas to drive over
That’s where I’m flying in from. Hope you have a nice tailwind on your drive over.
Heck, I thought you were flying out from Texas.
Thanks for the invite. I’m gonna try to make it.
if it helps...……...
EDIT: updated to show fuel pump
You just wanted an excuse to draw a phallus.
