    Thinking Saturday Nov. 4 would be a good time to visit 57 Alpha for burgers, and take in the fall foliage near AVL. Weather dependent, of course! Anyone game?

    There's good burgers at a seaplane base in Alaska?


    I know where you are going, but I'm not going to tell.

    Nah, the southeast is Georgia, Bama, and the Sip. This is also what is known as the dirty south and is where the good life is. Any place else..well..hahaha

    Does sound like a good café though. Too bad Im not closer to these southeast fly in's.

    Mississipi is deep South, but east of California, for sure.

    Leslie and I plan to fly up to that area this Sunday (Oct 29), so we would be too early for the burger run.

    We were considering AVL, but we usually steer clear of Signature. Does FQD have a decent FBO where we can park the BO for a few days and get a rental car? If not FQD, are there better places in the area?
    Otherwise, we may contribute our $$$ to Signature.

    Well I don't know. I know one isn't Mormon, but the other one I'm not sure. So you may well be right. :D

    Hmmmm. it does sound like a good idea though there is another aviation type event that day I am eyeballing. There is a pancake breakfast and ADS-B seminar at Lincolnton that day. Though that's breakfast. I'll still need to eat lunch. So.... maybe.

    So... is West Virginia in the West? Is South Dakota in the South?

    Sick?! You're the one who brought up my possible Mormon neighbors, of which I have no knowledge what religion they may practice. I do live on a cul de sac, maybe the other neighbors you're talking about....

    That sounds like a religious conquer map. Are the Mormons trying to take over the world or something? :dunno:

    West Virginia, hell that's easy. It's out west with Montana, Wyoming, wouldn't have West as part of it's name if it weren't a fact. That's right. :yes:

    Hey, I was just recommending a beer to Mark that just happened to be called polygamy in a thread that just happened to have mentioned mormons. I did not suggest multiple women to him.


    Not that I wouldn’t.
