    Fly-ins are sooo cool. So seldom, outside of family, can you see people from their teen years to those in their 70's truly enjoying each other's company. It's one helluva common thread.

    Check out 60J , Ocean Isle, NC. They have a BBQ joint right at the Airport and a few restaurants within walking distance. Beach is a pretty good hike. Winds are tricky. Not sure about fuel but a neat destination. Here is a pic after I took off going south down the coast. IMG_2944.JPG

    I just realized I get to make jokes in a few weeks about that being “ancient technology”! Woooooo. GPS. Hahahahaha.

    (Sorry, I have to find ways to drown out the wailing and whining of my wallet right now. Haha. Cheerleading works. Gimme a G! Gimme a P! Gimme an S! LOL...)

    He was working on Saturday. He made a few Instagram posts of us on the ramp and departing GMU. @FastEddieB - he posted a few of your Sky Arrow.

    On the way out, someone in the tower queried me about the aircraft type - he said he had never seen one before.

    Looks like a bunch of birds waiting to feed, which seems appropriate. :)

    If I get the medical back, you can fly here, and then I can fly you to the southeast.

    I'm in also. How about the 14th and if that ends up being bad weather automatically switch it to the 21st? But either date seems to be fine for me at this point. Already scheduled the plane for both dates until we settle on one if one of those ends up being the date.

    Any kind of landing fee or does the FBO charge a fee for just parking and going to eat at the restaurant?

    Count me in. Hitching a ride with @BrianNC

    I was just there about a month ago, no landing fees and plenty of parking out in front of the restaurant.

    Not only is there no fee, the restaurant gives you a discount if you fly in.
