Now, normally, this is a 3 1/2 hour drive….
Or a 1.2 hour flight.
So, we could go, have time to see each other, break bread, etc. and still return at a decent hour, rather than spend more time travelling than celebrating together.
This is why I learned to fly and own a plane.
1.2 each way, and 3 landings.
Weather was frikkin’ perfect. Clear skies, 6 mph winds at 7500/6500, and fairly smooth until the final approach back home.
