    And of course, a shot of my observer, whom I've nicknamed Ralph, looking a bit green on the leg between AGGE and AYBK.

    Expect banging, belching and an occasional manly fart as you roar down the runway at full power. (I have found that the engine can make similar noises)

    Made it into GSP...with a heart in the throat moment during landing. Who put that highway right in the middle of the runway?

    Down safely at HFD...but a bit confused. Why is the weather so nice? Jeppesen shows clear skies with 50 mile visibility. I tried RealWXLite and got some clouds and 10 mile visibility, and REX weather had me in rain and low visibility. Had I been using REX or RealWXLite I truly believe I would have had a much more difficult time finding the airstrip. A puzzler that I will leave for the race committee.
    Anyway...here are the requisite files.

    It appears that I departed from the wrong airport?...not sure how as my system showed it as GSP, but the Duenna shows it as AYGP...Now I'm really confused...time to go back to bed.

    Edit: never mind...the Duenna lists GSP as AYGP...

    Landed safely at WABB. Only a few miles off course, but the default weather is non-existent today. Think I'll call it a day and wait until weather comes back on line.

    Down safely at WAMH. Again...unrealistic "real world" weather with no clouds and unlimited visibility.

    Down safely at Malita...and done! It was nice to finally have some actual weather to fly in this last leg.
