Default +120 mph ride with John.

Finally a clear sunny dry Sunday morning and Laura and I finally got to go for a ride with John and his wife Margaret.


It doesn't take John long to get up to speed.


The speedo wrapped around into the red.



We cruised at over 120 mph for at least 1/2 hour.

Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Thanks for lunch.

BTW, we just got home.

By the time we got to the end of Texada we had 0 visibility in snow with a 50 mph headwind. We wanted to get to Vancouver Island at least and the only airport open that we could get to was Campbell River.

We got on the ground and the plane tied down minutes before it started snowing there too. We rented a car and drove home.

First time EVER that I've had to leave my plane and drive home because of weather.

Wow, John it just rained here a little but I can feel a cold chill in the air.

Certainly a day to remember.

Thanks again.

Got the plane home today. Weather is much better on this side of the pond though. I couldn't see your side at all Paul otherwise I would have dropped those books off.

It was nice then it hailed with the sun still shining and now is spotty high clouds.

Crazy weather.

120 on the ground feels much better than 120 in the air.


.....although it is much safer in the air.
