By the way. This event was inspired by one I missed Sunday, because I just wasn’t feeling to hot. So I though I’d take the Columbia River event made Sunday and sort of re-do it with the 208 race spin. Thanks to Omari and …oh no I forgot the other? Speak up! I thank you.

Should start from Astoria Regional right on the mouth of the river and head east the entire way. One of my fav flights to do in the SR22 at 1000feet, especially if turns to IMC through the mountains

I’m gonna show up soon in a FedEx liverly Cessna 208. I’m gonna try to just zoom solo and find people along the way.

We should share tours. I have several in my Home region. Even one that goes over where my house would be.
Thank you Nick, again I’m sorry I wasn’t able to make it Sunday. I hope to see you sometime today over the gorge.

My home region, New York, has the Hudson River. Maybe when New York is region of the week that could be a suggestion.

Need to recharge my battery. I had it plugged in to the Lightning port, but the other end wasn’t in the wall socket. Screwed up my plans to fly. Still will, just has to be in a couple hours though. Hate it when that happens. Go to turn on what I expect to be a fully charged iPad, and poof…it’s still at %9 arrrrgh.
