    Made the trip to 1I5 in Freehold, NY. The airport is only 70ish miles round trip from GBR, with pattern and all, but right at the extreme end of the range for this Cub. I made it back with about 50 minutes of fuel on board. The asphalt runway is a shambles, but the grass is fine.
    It's primarily a glider operation. I was hoping to see some soaring, but no joy.

    I've been down there a few times for lunch. I always come in from the east, over El Capitan Reservoir and Alpine, and even though the airport is right there on the GPS, it always seems to hide behind the hill!

    Some pictures of my Saturday. With captions.

    This sight picture takes me back about 36 years. Way back in 1984 I started flying lessons with Boy Scout Aviation Explorer’s Post 272 in Easton, Pennsylvania. Back then, the Boy Scouts were more involved with providing the opportunity to fly before potential liability litigation would shift the focus of Aviation Explorers from actual flying to activities that were less “dangerous”. This is final approach to runway 36. My instructor would have been sitting in the back seat of the Piper Super Cruiser and he would have said “you are high” if he wanted to give me advice. The fields between Woodstock and the airport belong to Lafayette College and are used for softball, baseball, lacrosse and other outdoor activities. Tatamy, Pennsylvania. September 19, 2020
    1001finalto36n43.jpeg

    Turning final to runway 6 at Lehigh Valley International, aka Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton. One of the “Prime” jets was in the process of being pushed back and would wait for me to depart after my second touch and go. Catasauqua, Pennsylvania. September 19, 2020
    1004finaltosixABE.jpeg

    This used to be the Bethlehem Steel Research Center. Now it is part of Lehigh University’s Campus. Aptly named “Mountaintop Campus”. Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. September 19, 2020
    1008researchcenter.jpeg

    The route of flight as recorded by ForeFlight. Usually I like to fly around Allentown’s Class Charlie airspace. This time I went through it on the way back to Pennridge. Just a fun day of meandering. A bit bumpy but beautiful weather none the less. Pennsylvania. September 19, 2020

    Grimes Airport (8N1) in Bethel, PA. Flew in for the "Biplanes and Bands" event and stretched my sleeping bag under the wing for the night, that's my Hatz in the foreground with the Waco they were hopping passengers all day in in the background.

    Only a few planes stayed over, this is the view from my sleeping bag in the morning:

    Smoke is the reason I’ve got no photos to share from my flight Sunday, from Colorado to Iowa. It was worst in Nebraska.

    The following four were taken today. Nothing at all to compare with some of the amazingly gorgeous shots in this thread, but it was a nice flight and figured I'd share the joy. One's of the marina where our boat is, indicated by the arrow. One is of a very long train... couldn't get all of it. One is of my favorite airport... the runway is 23' wide, and it's a HECK of a scary approach to 6 (pictured, but didn't land today) due to the trees. One may be familiar to a certain highly informative poster on this forum.

    Grew up around there got my primary at N57, you're making me homesick... Now that you have done that, here is my shopping list:

    10lbs Habersatts Scrapple
    2 Sho-Fly Pies
    2 dozen Amorosos' 8" rolls
    2 lbs of WaWa white American cheese..

    Looked like an awesome day for flying, which there are many if this time of year.
