Llano race foreflight string

30.778N/98.6619W 30.519N/98.3589W 30.7513N/98.4185W 31.2389N/98.7215W 31.1728N/99.3247W 30.7274N/99.1844W 30.7533N/98.6763W 30.7816N/98.6535W

Flew the course on Saturday 4/20.  It was a bit bumpy at 3500, did a climb after the San Saba turn to 4500.    Time was 1:03:28 (about 149 kts). This put me just ahead of the two 182's that actually flew the race the next weekend.  And I would have been 1st place in the RV Red class!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch....

Gonna need a new mailbox

Local punks were busy with a sledge hammer, mine was one of about 15.    This happened the night of March 11, 2013.  I intend to press charges and sue for damages if the little shits are caught.

Here's the crew putting up a new box.


600 dollars later.

Wayne got his airplane back from the paint shop!
