    I did get some flying in today. Practiced some commercial manuevers. So I can say I was high on 04/20. High in the sky.

    Plane in the shop here, grounded. It’s been great flying weather the last few days, plenty of planes buzzing around. I may just go to a gun show with the Son today, just looking.

    I see what you did there. :p

    BTW... I would have expected a town named Bong to be located in Colorado, not Wisconsin.

    We just call that “downtown”. Ha. It’s a beer bong in Wisconsin anyway. :)

    No idea where all the savings of not waging a War on a Plant went though. Governor probably has a new car or a new mistress. LOL. He’s really sleazy.

    Life sucks!!! Took off in perfect weather only to hit about what I estimate 5 miles vis ahead rt after leaving delta. Came back and landed. Another pilot landed after me said his estimate was about 4 miles of vis for about 10 miles coming to Fargo from Detroit lakes.... probably would have been fine, but probably is not in my personal minimums list so I scrapped the flight.

    Really need to start on that instrument thing.

    No problem. I was talking to @ArnoldPalmer on twitter and knew that you had to cancel. I ended up continuing on with the mission anyway, mostly because I was hungry :D and wrote a pirep here https://pireps.n2471u.com/places/20180421-kmic-ksuw.html

    Feel free to ping me in the future for trips around MN. BTW, this thread is pretty funny. It is Superior, WI, not Bong, WI. The airport is named after https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Bong

    Just sitting here laughing that the haze got too thick while you were flying toward a Bong. :)
