rdeurloo posted a topic in Trip ReportsThis month I flew my Light Sport Flight Design CT (affectionately known as "Tweety") from Salmon, Idaho to Burlington, Vermont and back to Tucson, AZ. Vermont was the only state that I have never visited, and I also went to see the fall foliage, and to visit come close friends and family along the way. The airplane performed flawlessly, and I learned that with a small plane, a bicycle, hiking shoes, and a little time, you can go most anywhere in this beautiful country. The weather was generally good, but I did have some weather delays; 2 days in Ames, Iowa waiting for the 40 MPH winds to subside, 24 Hours in Valparaiso, IN waiting for the low overcast to lift, and an unexpected afternoon in Saratoga Springs, NY because of rain. With the ForeFlight App, I felt I had almost as much information and capabilities as a 747 captain. I stopped in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and visited Mac and Vicki Brame, who I had met at the Page Fly-In. They couldn't make Page this year, but it worked out well for me, as I had a great visit! They showed me how to catch bass in their private pond. They kept reeling them in, but I couldn't catch one for the life of me. They also have a grass strip on their farm, where they land their CT. I didn't attempt it, as it was fairly windy. It was a great adventure. Bob Deurloo
