Default Re: Where I Fly.

I flew from Mesquite Texas to Boerne, Texas to see the family. Boerne is in the Texas Hill Country, it was a toasty 103 Degrees when I stopped for fuel in Lampasas, Texas. Here is a picture of a neat valley in the Hill Country. All I can say is damned it was Hot. I got back to the Dallas area at about 4:32. Mesquite was under a TFR for Obama doing a fundraiser in Dallas. I called in to Dallas Approach, they cleared me to land at Mesquite. When I landed, Ground Control told me I needed to call Approach Control and talk with a Supervisor. I put up the plane, called the Supervisor at Approach Control. He told me I called in at 30.5 miles, and I should have called at 32 miles out. I explained I called as soon as I thought was appropriate. He said I should make sure to call earlier than later, other than that he said his Supervisor was fine with it because I did call. That was the first time I flew into a TFR with Obama in town. They really get stringent when the President is in town! I got my wrist slapped, but I did have fun, but Damned it was Hot!

Heading to the Idaho backcountry in the morning. Kris (my wife) and I will be camping at Smiley Creek then flying to more remote areas from there. I will have my SPOT on (link below signature line) if you want to "ride along". We will be home Sunday (7/13/2014). There is a webcam at Smiley Creek airstrip and I will try to park where my plane can be seen. Here is the link to the webcam: Smiley Creek Webcam

We had some things come up that need attention today. We are postponing our trip until tomorrow.

Went to a local evening fly-in with a few friends just a few miles west of JLN. Hot dogs, hamburgers etc. Great evening for flying.

Beautiful skies in Joplin. Get ready we are suppose to have a Summer Cool down. I'm looking forward to the low 80s. We might have some nice cool flying days coming. I really like you Kitfox, ever since Kitfox has put out the Yellow SLSAs I have grown to like yellow all over again!

Thanks guys. A friend has a grass strip just north of Riverton, KS. We had an impromptu gathering. 6 airplanes and a retired 747 driver with a really good camera.
