Well it has cleared up at my house. Hopefully this afternoon.

Just checked weather, Mesquite International is still Marginal IFR. As of 12:00 pm it's still IFR. Maybe Saturday.

I got up early getting ready to depart. I checked the weather on ForeFlight.
A lot of IFR, a lot of fog, some rain storms along my flight plan.

I looked out the door, man now that's a low ceiling.
Maybe tomorrow. Tomorrow noon is my cut off time. I have a Rotax training class to make and if I can't fly I'm driving, or going via Southwest Airlines.

I know there are some people that will say this isn't showing where I fly. I was planning on posting some photos along the way. But one of the first steps in where I fly is flight planning, the second step, is getting the plane prepped (done & packed), and final check the weather. Check, check, & re-checked. This is where I Fly for the last 3 days.

I Just Uploaded one more of the three part long ones, The $100 hamburger. Two of us departed here in Cameron Park and joined up with three other adventuresome pilots as they flew overhead on our way to breakfast at a restaurant near Trinity lake in North Eastern California. The flight of 5 included three Model IV Kitfoxes and two Rans S-6s. This flight took us over some very interesting countryside as we flew North over the western foothills of the Sierra Mountains. Then across the top of the Sacramento Valley to our destination, Trinity Lake. Finding our restaurant had closed and now needing fuel as well as food, we flew West to Eureka. After fueling our airplanes we then decided to fly South along the coast to Shelter Cove in hopes of finding a place to eat - which we did, but still no restaurant, but at a community gathering with the very best kind of food.

Mic,
I have to be honest with you. When I was going over this video, I wondered as you did what we were thinking. It was a light fog that was pretty much localized in the area just below Eureka. We had good visibility as far as spatial orientation was concerned with information of clearing ahead. It probably looked worse from the perspective if my video camera as I was one of the more conservative guys flying a bit higher than the beach combers. One of the wheel washers and beach combers was the flight leader.

Thanks for the vids, Lowell. It's fun seeing the differences in the kind of country each of us has to fly in.
