Been somewhat on the fence about bringing up the Piet, but have decided to do it.

Will be starting from 9A5, Lafayette GA. Probably overnighting near Sullivan IN, then getting in the next day. Prob take off Wed, get in Thurs noonish.

Will likely have a ground chaser coming along. Anyone wanting to fly along or meet along the way is more than welcome. May be a couple more planes coming from the Atlanta area, no confirmations yet.

Will also be taking her up to the convention on Sun morning for the week.

Hi Tools,

Eggsellent!

I am still planning on making the trip from 2GA9, Snellville, GA. My rough
calendar plan is similar to yours. Do you have a reason for Sullivan as an
overnight stop? Is there a grass strip you plan to use (Drake?). Iıd
previously planned to make my first stop 3M5 (Moontown) as itıs grass,
would make a good first leg (about 2-2.5 h) and would get me west of most
of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Thanks,

Jeff

Purely distance. I'm open to anything. I did find a private strip about an hour north of sullivan that would host us. Could check on that, or good for your idea, this really is a plea for what ever fits whomever is coming along.

It'll be an adventure any way we look at it. With a chase vehicle, we can get avgas to where ever we overnight, no worries!

Jeff,

If Moontown is your first stop, we could meet up at our first stop, m54, Lebanon. They've got a grass runway, been there a few times.

We had 3 legs to Sullivan, didn't get started until noon or so and had a long sit enroute. You'd have four to get that far north...

Still not hung up on Sullivan, just havn't scoured the sectional for a nearby strip that's grass. Maybe Shawnee (1i3)? Not sure where Drake is...

Douwe,

The fields you mention are a bit out of our way. Looks like you're skirting Indianapolis to the north, if you do the same to the south, our paths get pretty close.

Hi Tools,

M54 is one of two options Iıd been planning for my second stop ‹ I really
prefer grass for anything other than early morning or evening landings as
my mains are simple motorcycle wheels from some unknown 60s bike, probably
with much less lateral strength than what is needed.

Another option is that I could make Lafayette my first stop. Itıs about
1.5 hours from 2GA9, which would be a decent opening to the journey. What
time do you hope to depart? If itıs super early, maybe Iıd fly up the
evening before or some such.

After work, Iıll send you a complete list of enroute options that Iıve
been pondering and get your take on them.

This is coming together nicely.

Jeff

Oh even better if you can do Lafayette.

Even better than that, I'll get the coordinates of a grass strip of a friend's about 10 mi north of there, it's only 10 minutes from my place, we can overnight you easily... although don't need a super early departure, just might make the next day a bit easier.

Should be able to get your plane indoors there, we'll get some gas from Lafayette to fuel up.

Oh, and Wendel's place can host as many as come along. Can probably get two, maybe three in his hangar. He might be flying up as well... he's got a REALLY nice RV8, he'll probably take off directly for KOSH so would likely be leaving well after us.

If anyone is in the mood to try landing at our place, can get quite a few under cover. Probably worth landing at Wendel's, then coming over to look over the field in person and then deciding for yourself. It's quite a climb after landing...

However a very easy approach with no obstacles.
