SO, This past weekend was me and my wife's 2nd wedding anniversary so I wanted to take us out for it. Initally, I was going to fly us to Ocala from Brooksville for lunch and then head to St. Pete. She really wanted to go to St. Augustine and I figured why not but I explained to her that even though the flight is about an Hour, plan on it being the whole day. You know the adage, "Time to spare, go by air". Now realize, that she was the one that really supported and encouraged me to get the PPL so I surprised her by taking us to SGJ for lunch and then back to BKV and a drive to St. Pete for an night cap. Got to the airport at 9:30am..A couple of newbie things I did from what I can remember. First, Could not get flight following because they were busy. She was much better at seeing airplanes than me. The 180 has a 750 so traffic is visible. I pretty much followed all the checklists which was nice. She actually was impressed watching me "press all the buttons" as she said. The flight was beautiful and not a cloud in the sky. My flight plan took us around the MOA's because I could not get FF. The landing into SGJ was nice but I felt that I could have performed a better downwind to final. The runway (13-31) is very long and has quite a long displaced threshold. There was a pretty good direct crosswind from the right and lets say, it wasn't my best landing. Now I get paranoid and study the taxi diagrams because I don't want to "be that guy". you know the guy who is causing problems for the controllers. Well it was a simple taxi straight via bravo to the FBO. Sweet!! straight there and then parked. Tipped the guy a couple of bucks and walked into the FBO. I like to throw around my anniversary in case they want to charge me fees. So far so good since i'm 3 for 3 on the landing fees. Got an Uber, went to town and ate lunch. Came back and off we went. SO this is where it gets interesting. It starts with the controller reading the Atis..She's saying it so quick I can't understand the wind direction. I'm kind of worried because my landing wasn't so hot and the winds on my app are straight crosswind again at 10kt. I call up and ask for taxi for departure. Well the controller has me go one way, then she says...oops sorry, wrong way. Then tells me to cross both runways and i'm here frantically looking at the taxi diagram and comparing the signs on the runway to make sure i'm correct. My wife is excellent and is pointing me where to go. Great!! now for that wind check. BTW, the controller doesn't tell me where to stop. So I am looking at the taxi diagram and looks like B5 is where I should be so I radio to the tower and she says'...yeah that's fine. Do my run up and everything is fine. Switch over to tower and IDK why i'm a little frazzled but i'm just not hearing everything. Had to hold for incoming traffic, get cleared for depart and left turn out. Well I hear right so I repeat right??? then he says no left turn out.. OK good. Great takeoff, and no issues with the crosswind take off. Now this 180 is climbing at 1300 fpm due to the nice weather here. So on the way back I had put in the flight plan to X60 and home so that I would not have to worry about the MOA. Went ahead and tried FF this time...and finally able to get someone. While on flight following...I could fly direct so for the life of me I could not get the X60 waypoint deleted from the gps. I finally did like after 15 min. I really don't remember how i even did it. Also lets see.. I kept messing up the frequency. At one point, someone had a very similar call sign so I ended up talking as him. I ended up with a transponder change and the controller told me to go to the prior one. I looked like a complete and felt like a complete newbie. Canceled FF when I had the airport in sight but there was a cessna flying to our right about half a mile out which I think was also radioing in for landing. Me like an idiot called the tower and asked them if they saw the plane next to me. The tower stated he had no radar and if I was worried to do a 360 which is what I did. Came in for left midfield downwind for rwy 9 and had a great landing. Taxied back to the hanger. Got back to the car at 4pm and off to St Pete we went. Next day went to the pier and did not know that Albert Wittred airport was right there. Spent an hour watching planes take off... Told my wife we are going there next...She is definitely excited!!
