    Messin' with a Texan

    About an hour out of Texarkana in a borrowed 'Bus. Hopefully my planned ride will be waiting for pickup.

    Hello all,

    As noted by one of the added picture you can see that Srgalahad made it to Texarkana, Tex, AR. (hehe) in time for Flight 19 start of a new adventure. Got me a cowboy hat to wear, but flying the darn wind kept trying blow it off of me head. LOL. So back to the leather helmet, well, not to bad it sure keeps me ears warm. The flight was a enjoyable flight there were some weather to the southwest of our flight plan, but it never affected our flying. We left 21TX and headed toward KGGG, what a surprise! KGGG had a long runway of over 10,000 ft. One thing we won't have to worry about short take offs like we had in the Lobster flights. But it is early in the adventure so who knows!

    Here I is again!

    As you more than likely noticed that I didn't add anything about Saturday flight. Moses, and Srgaladadm and me self took off from Longview, Tx. pushed ourselves along with clear sky and a little tail wind and sometime no wind, we landed it the City of Commerce, again in Texas. We stay down on Sunday in order to do a little TLC, hehe. I got a couple of fellows to wash and maybe give my bird a was job. It sure cost me a few pennies, but she sure looks good until the next dirt runway. Well, enough'

    The flight took off Monday and headed to Denton from Commerce, I really believe every person who has been working Sunday were more delighted we left on Monday. The flight was more than uneventful, Should have had a TV installed in my plane, but the darn thing more than likely wouldn't pick up and TV Station. At one point, Srgalahad pointed out the our buddy Moses lived about five miles on our port side. Now this is where I shined, Told Srgalahad we should, if Moses had nice big back yard, maybe we could land and get a nice home cooked meal, But alas, It just wouldn't work. Darn it! We landed at Denton with no problem, ATC brought us straight in, Now that was a first! Enough, I kind of get carried away on this here magic machine.

    Since we are in Texas, I'll just say Howdy.

    Last night we flew from Waco KACT and to off for Canton 7F5 on a beautiful day in Texas, clear weather, and again a little usual for us wee pilots of Flight 19. Man! Talk about being flat, flat. I thought Kansas was flat, crying out loud Kansas is like the mountain country out west! Hehe. Oh well! My flying buddy said there is a lots of cattle down there, hehe, got me thinking about a big juicy steak! Hmm, wonder if Canton has a nice steak house? If so we are going to get the best steak they have, hehe, we still have someone's credit card if he say anything about us having steaks, hehe, we will tell him that we were thinking of him during dinner, aren't we real nice guys. As I was flying along in this very nice situation, A neat thought crossed me mind about going up side down for a little bit. Well, I did, and Texas sure looked different looking at it that way. Great, I was so enjoying upside down I forgot to take a picture.

    Ok, back to business. Flight 19 will be heading from Canton to Nacogdoches, now that's mouth full. So hope you all stay tuned for our flight to Nacogdoches.

    Howdy all,

    Flight 19 stood down yesterday due to some logistic problem. Should, if the creek doesn't rise, be in the air today. OK, now where is that great steak house you all were talking about?

    Hello again,

    Hot Dog! the creek didn't rise, and two of us took to the air! Oh, by the way, that steak was great. Dudley and I went back to the steak house and order some steak sandwiches to enjoy on our flight to Nacogdoches, but alas, the best laid plans can and do change into a big fat mess. The weather changed low clouds, and our usual friend RAIN! Srgalahad was running low on fuel and decided to land on any runway in order to get down as fast as he could. I was a little low on fuel also, I believe we still had enough to need if we had to do a go around due to the weather. Finally, we headed to the NDB, drop down real low made a quick right turn at the ADF and by golly there was the runway. On final approach we noticed that Rob was landing on the cross runway to us. Hehe we set her down just in time to see Rob crossing the intersection of the two runways, so all ended well. The steak sandwiches survived and were a little cold, but we figured out a way to heat them up. hehe. But that's life, the sandwiches were cold and the beer hot. Hehe what a way to finish our flight.
