    This may be a non-starter for me. The winds haven't laid as predicted overnight and both home field and WWD are still gusts over 20 kts. Beyond my limits with the little time I have in this plane. I had Geezer and another friend going with me so this may be breakfast in Gaithersburg for us. I'll file and drive down and see how it looks in person.

    Okay, I'll take a rain-check then. Not a big deal since it gives me some more time with the family before heading back to D.C. in the morning.

    Cheers,

    Just shut the remote preheats off and making breakfast here. You all enjoy breakfast at Gaithersburg.

    We will catch up another time.
