First things first; there's a satellite tracker on the airplane that can be viewed at https://share.garmin.com/katamarino My loose plan was to spend ~6 weeks total flying from Pittsburgh PA to Alaska, all around Alaska and Northern Canada, and then home. The loose initial trip plan: So far I have made it to Hope, BC, and am waiting out some cloudy weather as there are some exceptionally large mountains around. I don't want to push my luck! The aircraft is a 1982 C182R with PPonk engine. Panel is as shown. Highlights are a 430W, Stec-30 with altitude hold, and EDM-830 engine monitor. Also my new G5 to replace the failing AI. There is a certain amount of "GPS overload". The two in the panel came with the airplane. The Aera 550 on the yoke I find very useful for looking up ADS-B weather and airport info; the interface is better than with Garmin Pilot on the tablet. The tablet is, however, extremely useful for holding all the IFR charts/plates, and has more detailed and up to date airport info than the Aera, so they all play a role. I set off mid-June, flying my old C172 up to Williamsport PA to collect my new 182 which had been in the shop there for a G5. I'd also added Flint tip tanks for an extra 23 gallons usable, and a dual USB charger in the panel which is proving to be very useful indeed. As is often the case the work went down to the wire and was only finished the day I wanted to depart. The weather was IMC through PA and OH but then cleared right up. I just flew hard to cover ground across the "boring bits", and made it to Creighton Municipal in Nebraska to camp overnight. Boring terrain: Overnight in Creighton: The view from the tent: The next day I headed on, destination being the "Greater Green River Intergalactic Spaceport". From Wikipedia: Unfortunately my day was upturned by the discovery of fuel dripping from the wing, which concerned me a little. Luckily it turned out to be an easy fix and I was soon on my way to the Intergalactic. Wyoming countryside: Parked up at Greater Green River: There is nothing at all at this airport, so I walked the mile to the state road and almost immediately someone pulled over to give me a ride into town. Rail yard in Green River: The Green River (I assume): Kid's baseball in the park. As a non-American I found this very cool. Local vehicle: My view during the much more difficult endeavor of trying to get a ride back out of town to the airport. More to come as time allows!
