    Yeah it’s still a tad bit early for me to call it, but I’m afraid the ceilings and forecasted mountain obscuration may put a damper in the plans.

    This is some of the data I’m looking at so far. Quite a bit of LIFR/IFR forecasted for 8a EDT.

    It's purple, and pink, means take some acid and go fly young man! Right

    my plan has not changed one iota since day one. I'm leaving at 10am unless the wx tells me I aint.

    but now I gotta go back and break the bad news to @FlySince9 that right seat is once again taken.

    Seems to have improved a bit. I'll wait until the morning. If it improves I might give it a go.

    I figure if I fly under the hood I won't even know what weather is out there.

    Sorry, I'm gonna wuss out. Too much Low IFR in the morning, from ATL past CHA to TYS, followed by afternoon TS halfway back. Widespread 500' ceilings make me nervous . . . .

    I'm going to be a wuss just like Hank. :( The trip over might be doable but I just don't want to deal with the TS forecasts on the way home.

    Those who do go, have fun and be safe.

    I’m going to head on up, if I don’t like what I see I’ll turn around.

    Here's what I have now, never mind KDKX this afternoon. It's more than I want to deal with for lunch.

    Sounds like the general consensus is ‘bail’. Let’s look to reschedule. Unfortunately that looks like our best option.


    P.S. - suck my bawls, t-storms!

    Ok, well, if everyone's bailing I'll just stay here in Atlanta.

    Wow, the clouds certainly rolled in quickly at PDK. It was clear when I left around 9. They are calling it scattered, but I think someone is being optimistic.

    I was out this weekend because I work every other weekend, so my vote is for an odd number of weeks from today. :) (Except three, I’m busy then too!)

    That's what I did. Wheels up at 9:45 turned around 20 minutes later... looking forward to the reschedule.

    It would even be cooler if the South Carolina Breakfast Club was in North Carolina next week... say at FQD. Now that would be cool. I would be tempted to go.

    Going to be at CMA Fest in Nashville next weekend. It was a tough call, but I'm going to choose Carrie Underwood over you guys.
