Ima missing all y'all already.
I will make this flyin one of these years, but sadly not this year once again. You all travel safe and have fun!
Leslie and I are overnighting in Green Bay. We should arrive early afternoon.
Planning on a day trip tomorrow, if the...
Sorry, I can't finish the sentence until tomorrow without angering the gods.
Same here - we will not be able to make it up there this afternoon.
We're now hoping for tomorrow and that we can stay until Sunday morning.
Btw. 1: Is the runway at 6Y9 getting soft when it is wet?
Btw. 2: Is windshear at 2000 ft at 35 kts bad?
better let @Skywalker handle this one...……..
We’ve already got 5 planes here for the fly-in! 2 Comanches, a Rans, a Cherokee, and a Cessna 140.
Ugh well, Wx has got me down. Might not make it.
We are really sorry, but we are also not going to make it... See you next time.
From Ed Frederick at 12:26pm:
Visibility is good up here. Sct bkn at 1500 but unl vis underneath.
Wow, youse guys missed it. Unbelievable.
But, what happens in Sidnaw, stays in Sidnaw, so...
I flew there in X-Plane. Not much going on from what I saw. Lots of trees.
You shouldda got in touch with me. You could have joined us.
So where’s the pics?
We taxied up, guided by Camper Canine Cruise Control
I meant the flight sim. Might be a plan for next year.
@lprellwitz and I are back home safe! Flying back today would have been problematic!
Thanks so much @Dizaster and Brad for putting on a GREAT event each year!
And just where is the human "X"?
Youse guys are slackards!
I got up to 200 AGL crossing the straits, but other than that was down on the deck the whole way. ;-)
Did anyone make it? Looks like an ugly weekend both for flying and camping.
Airplane #6 (RV) showed up Saturday evening.
Friday was marginal for VFR at least some of the day - I was driving through rain showers between Trout Lake and Seney - cleared up for the dash across the ever popular Seney Stretch - but a couple airplanes made it in (the 140 (flew in from North Fox Island) and second Comanche).
Camping wasn't bad at all. Rain Friday night (thunderstorm in the middle of the night), but warm. Didn't seem to be too windy (unless I slept through it.)
About 15 minutes of rain on Saturday ('round noon) and a little around midnight (if there was more, it didn't wake me up).
The Rans hopped some rides Saturday and made a trip down to Land of Lakes - decent for most of the day - I must say that the Rans was a nice looking design with some nice features - moved to #1 on my "If I ever build an airplane myself" list. Glad I got a chance to look at it closely.
Sunday AM was pretty grey - particularly over the eastern U.P.
I've always joked that I bring a bungee cord to strap the steering wheel down for the Seney stretch so that I can take a nap while driving.
We rolled in about 6 last night, now back to the real world and the stresses that abate while in the UP.
