Jun 2018 Florida Keys —- check!
Our U.S. perimeter flight continues and, for the last 36 hours, we’ve slowly been making our way around the long, narrow peninsula known as Florida. Boyd and I both agree, our flight has been a complete joy and, even though we’re less than a third of the way ’round, I’m already dreading it ending. We’ve passed through 17 states so far, but the BIG ones still lie ahead – Texas & California. As of today we’ve overflown Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
One awesome lady taildragger pilot invited us for coffee & muffins at Ormond Beach Airport KOMN and we were all over that! Gail Stillings-Burch turned out to be one of the funnest lady taildragger pilots we’ve met – and she lives and breathes flying! Low ceilings kept us on the ground at KCRG till way past morning coffee time but no big deal. We had as blast hanging out with Gail and her friends, and touring hangars with some fabulous taildraggers tucked inside.
