    I will have to let folks know tomorrow. Need to visit elderly parent, still haven't worked out the schedule, though it's usually early afternoon.

    :( I'll be up in PA shooting a small bore sillhouette match Sunday.

    I bailed from work midday and just got home from flying the 182 from there up to York and back to get some landings in. Note post-flight beer.

    Sorry, we have to cancel. We just got a call from our dog sitter that one of our dogs seems really ill and may not make it. We’re getting on the road home shortly. Will try to make it back up in the near future.

    Dang just reading this. Had daughters soccer at 1 anyway so wouldn’t have been able to.

    How about Sat sept 28? Anybody going anywhere good? I have all day for once so I can actually do a lunch run.

    Willie did not make it. All rather sudden. Still, we returned home to give him a proper burial. Maybe plan a fall trip back to DC for some unfit business - will let you know.

    Anybody in the DC area want to meet up at Runways at HGR for lunch on Saturday (9/28) ? Never been, but the menu looks good.

    I am going VFR and the ceilings don't look great in the morning, but coming up late morning or around noon. So I think I will be there around 1 or 1:30. Anybody want to meet up? I'm solo since my youngest doesn't want to go and my other kid has something in the afternoon. Wife won't fly with me... Would be nice to have some company.

    Well didn’t get the checkout done. We’re standing around the plane chatting waiting for the clouds to lift and I think “hmmm people are running down the runway. Airport zombie attack?” Um no. Neither of us had looked at NOTAMS yet and they were running a 5k on the runway.

    Club is 2nd club for me. 10 folks and an Archer. Good group and the plane is nicely equipped and $95 an hour.

    Airport zombie apocalypse 5k! Too bad. I didn't go either. Clouds didn't come up in time for me. Probably could have made it if I left around noon, but I would have been rushed for lunch and I wanted to play it safe with the weather.

    Next weekend I'm in the same position if the weather cooperates - maybe heading out to Luray to see the caverns with my kids... Or HGR for lunch. Or... heck if the weather is warm enough oxb to the beach.

    182 KGAI to KBYL for me next weekend. Followed by about 7 hours on the tractor hauling the bush hog and I’ll bet 3 hours of chainsaw work getting the family farm ready for deer season.

    Nothing I know of. I was planning on flying Friday am but wx looks decent and could shift to Sat am if folks wanted to meet up. Ok, to tell the truth I'd be happy to fly both days :D
