Lynne and I flew to KJWY, Midlothian/Waxahachie to visit Katrin at the Scarborough Fair renaissance festival. Didn't take any pictures, but we had a nice "Courtesy Car Adventure" in a retired Waxahachie police Crown Vic. Old and beat up, but the A/C worked!

We also flew up to Arkansas and landed at Mena to go hiking for the day in the Ouchita National Forest.

The hiking was hot and windy, and not all that great, but we both got a kick out of using the RV to get out of Texas for the day!

We had another "Courtesy Car Adventure" thanks to the nice folks at the FBO. It was an older car in serious need of new brake rotors and other front end work.  The check engine and low coolant lights were always on.  I wasn't sure it could be trusted in the mountains of Ouchita National Park, but it got us there and back.
