    Spike's making good time too, and missed the weather.

    http://flightaware.com/live/flight/N7892R

    Though, based on what I saw this morning, he got some IMC climbing out, at least. Was 700 OVC and rain when I drove past DFW this morning.

    Looks like they went up to 7300 then came back down to 7000 to get it "on the step"...:D

    I'll be departing IA24 in N8313V in a couple hours, hopefully before this big nastiness that's headed my way gets here! But I won't be on FlightAware, I'll be flying below the radar. :D

    Planning a post work departure around 4ish In N271G. I'm picking up Javier in St Joseph, so I may need a ride from Mountain home as I don't have the Braille One arrival proc. I just hope Steve can miss the deer again this year :D

    Tony, I see you made it. I'm somewhere over Colorado in the back of an A319, coming home from a work trip.

    We'll head down sometime tomorrow. WX will determine whether we bring the 140 or a 172. Right now, it looks like the 140 will be the tool of choice.

    Can't wait to see everybody!

    Good luck! I was just over CO in a 319, too, and we had an hour hold due to TS over the airport....

    I'm truly sorry to hear that, Wayne. Sometimes life gets in the way.

    Bob will have to fend for himself now.

    We're departing sometime before noon in the 140.

    We'll likely have to dodge some weather, but it looks much better than last year. See you all this evening!
