    Here's part 2 of my trip from California to Oshkosh. In this episode, after waiting out the weather in La Crosse, WI, we hop in the plane and fly the Fisk Arrival.

    Excellent! That was similar to my experience a few years ago. Hard to watch for traffic and Fisk at same time, even with a co-pilot. I prematurely rocked two times.

    Cool how you animated the ADS-B display and ID’d yourself.

    Enjoyed that segment of your flight. It was really cool how you showed all the traffic and highlighted planes you were following.

    Haha. That is the perfect capture of the FISK arrival - sheer stress combined with "is he talking to us? is he talking to us?" then thinking "good grief, they've completely forgotten about us, we're going to end up over the lake" followed by "hit the dot hit the dot hit the dot" followed by "THAT WAS THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!" hahaha..

    Great videos!

    I was right... I hate you more now... The tension in this vid was palpable... The climax a bit of a let down... uneventful. The green monster grows...
