    Parked and ready to go get some fish tacos and a bottle of Bohemia. Hopefully I won't get tired of fish tacos before I cross into the USA!

    Nice one, Ponch!
    ALTHOUGH...that's the plane I was gonna use! Copy-cat. Huh!
    I'll show you! *I*, that would be ME, will use the bare metal version of it. That'll show you!
    So there, neener


    Kidding man. I am going to use that plane, but heck, it's a great bird to fly. I really enjoy it. Hope you liked it as much as I do
    Pat☺

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

    If it's cruddy IFR, THIS is the ship I want to pilot. Just be mindful of the torque! It's such a stable, steady all-around platform.

    Hey Ponch, I stashed some cash under your seat. Your plane looked like it could use a wash and figured it could be something you did right before you took off. I tried to see if I could find you but I guess you were off having fun somewhere. See you when you catch up I suppose.

    Yep, I was having fun and avoiding the tax man until the last possible minute. I guess I'll have to file an extension and give Uncle Sam his bite when I get back home from this trip!

    That should be enough fishing and lounging on the beach to last me a while! Time to head north...

    Looks like it's time to get indoors and enjoy a few chiles rellenos and a cold beer in "air conditioned comfort!"

    Next destination: O08, "Home Field"
    Time to pick up a few things I forgot, and I can't decide between Rocco's on the River, Don Habanero's, Granzella's or Louis Cairo's! (shameless plugs, but HIGHLY recommended, every one!) You do not go hungry or disappointed here!
