    Bring anything/everything you need, as there is not much around.
    As far as flying in...I landed/took off an over-loaded-but-under-powered Cherokee from there on a 90 degree day...if my Cherokee can do it, anyone can.

    Remember, there is no fuel for sale at 2I3. Plan accordingly.

    2I0 is close and they have a very friendly/helpful FBO and a self-serve pump. Other airports might be just as good/more convenient but that's one I've been to many times so I thought I'd mention it.

    In this case, low wing airplanes do have an advantage over high wing planes. Just be careful who you park next to in a high wing.

    Just watched that a few days ago. I had the privilege, nay, the responsibility of introducing it to a 24 year old kid who had never heard of it. He enjoyed it thoroughly. There is hope for the young man.

    That's my favorite movie, and has been since I saw it in the theater in 1983. Appropriately, this was a second-run theater - 99 cents, all seats, all shows, all times - that was in a Quonset hut.

    What have you been smoking to see a chef in that tier of states?

    Oh wait, it was post 420. Never mind.

    Actually, I don't think I'll ever be able to think of Kentucky the same after seeing that.

    Today I started ground school at Piedmont. I'll get home Apr 12 and then wait for a sim training date. Some guys are waiting 2-3 weeks between ground and sims, so I'm a solid maybe for this trip.

    My guess would be EMB-145. And that EMB stands for Embraer, not Embry Riddle.
