While George and I were out on the golf course this morning, plans were firmed up with Jim, my brother-in-law, this morning for them to fly over for a short visit. Cool! My sis and BIL live southwest of Seattle and we are on the eastern slopes of the North Cascade mountains - a five hour car ride away but only a 45 minute flight.
Here they come!

|Aligned with the Runway|
A safe and smooth landing behind them, time to taxi to the parking area.
|We're over here!|
One of my sister's friends, Becky, also came along for the flight. George and I took them into town and we had a late afternoon lunch at the Twisp River Pub. Luckily for them, they didn't have to ride into town in this "classic" courtesy car provided by the airport.
|Ain't she a beauty? But a ride in this is better than no ride at all!|
It was fun to visit for an hour or so before it was time to take them back to the airport. No TSA hassles, no parking fees, just a little old country airport.
George helped Jim push the airplane out onto the taxiway and then Jim started his pre-flight checklist. I have flown with Jim before and he is a very competent pilot. I am not afraid to fly with him at all!
|Push, George, Push!|

Until next time!
