    @kaiser Cool Beard Guy mentioned travel and rental availability had his next flight Dec. 4. That seems like a good day as any to grab some food. Let's say 10 AM at 1C5, Charlies. Rain/snow date Dec. 11.

    I might be in. Our community has a big nativity festival that weekend and right now I'm only committed to that Sunday for volunteering.

    Btw, I've been to 1C5 a number of times and I'm always nervous about there being enough parking. Where do you go park if it is full in front of Charlie's?

    I’m in. Technically I have a plane for Sunday morning (Dec 5) for a breakfast run… but now I have a plane for this too!

    Oops, good solve for my mixup!

    As Doc Bruce is based at Clow, hopefully he will have some parking tips.

    I wish. I'm blessed with a dual mag, so there's still no electronic option.

    I may be able to make the 11th if it goes that date. December 4 I’m flying for Operation Good Cheer… we deliver gifts for the states foster care kiddos. They amass them at PTK and volunteer pilots and truckers take them from there to designated spots around the state. In 2019 I was one of 250 planes, unsure how many trucks, and we delivered 22,000 gifts for 7,000 or so kids. 2020 they did it all via truck. It’s been going for 50 years, started by one guy and a Skyhawk…

    I’ll keep an eye on the thread- as it would be fun to meet some folks in person.

    It looks like your airplane peeled out leaving the hangar. You two don’t get along?

    What’s that in real airplane* speed? You know, using knots?

    *I think 88mph is close to Vmax in my 150. Real close. Which makes it a real airplane.

    I don't know.... Mine's marked in mph :(

    If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88mph, you're gonna see some serious....

    I can likely make it on the 4th. Not likely on the 11th.
    Charlie's is great - I haven't been there in a while, thanks for setting this up!

    Current forecast is cold and sunny, which is good. Bring your top game on your crosswind technique, though.

    Thanks Doc. I sure hope parking anxiety isn't a disqualifying condition on my next medical. :eek: :D

    Yep, the system shifted a little bit. Instead of the top of the high pressure we're just getting the edge of it. Looks like it will be a nice day. Will be my first time landing north at 1C5. I've always landed south there.
