Carla and I left KLWC yesterday at 8:50 AM with a nice tailwind and 2.5 hour ETE. Before long we were deviating south of the big yellow and green ball that passed through Lawrence the night before. I kept going lower and lower, ending up between layers. Once popping through a small channel of ground visibility, we made northerly progress until the ceiling dropped too far. We put down in Peru, IL (KVYS Illinois Valley Regional) with about 300’ ceilings and borrowed the courtesy car to get some lunch. When we got back to the airport, the ceiling was lower and rain was starting so we drove the courtesy car home the last 75 miles. I just got home from retrieving the plane.

It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Hopefully next time the weather will be mo better for giving rides. I remember that was always a highlight of the gathering the first 8 years I attended while still building. We’re all for yearly reunions if Greg can stomach it.

Great seeing everyone in Lawrence this year! Made it home safely in 5 and 1/2 hours. Headwind all the way and aggravatingly bumpy south of Little Rock. Checked my transponder and mode c with Little Rock approach and mode c was within 100 feet. However, it took a bit for them to see my transponder and then it dropped out when I was only 20 miles south of them. I think my old Terra may need replacing. Has anyone been pricing replacing their transponder with an ADS-B unit? If so, what’s the best deal found?

Garmin GTX-335 is ADS-B out only for $3,000…and qualifies for $500 FAA rebate.

Glad to hear  from you all.  We left just before Jim & Carla and made it to Grand Island NE (KGRI) about 1.5 hours later, cruising at 6500 most of the way.  Timing was good because most airports along our route varied between MVFR and IFR.  According to Enterprise Rental Car, our car was peppered by hail and they want our insurance deductible.  Did anyone else notice hail damage?

Looking forward to the new website and next reunion.

Thanks.  We heard from Chuck Stroh that he didn’t notice any damage.  We filed an insurance claim just so an adjuster could take a look at it but we told the insurance company we didn’t see any kind of damage and the rental agent didn’t send a pic via text as we requested.  Sounds fishy to us.

Sorry to hear you ran into weather but glad to know you found a good spot to land.  We’re probably going to bag the trip to MN - weather here is crummy too.
It was a good Fly In though.
See you later.  Mike

Carol and I were in the motorhome when the hail fell at the hotel.  Loud, but not damage to car or motorhome.  Looking around next morning I did not see any damaged vehicles.

Carla and I left KLWC yesterday at 8:50 AM with a nice tailwind and 2.5 hour ETE. Before long we were deviating south of the big yellow and green ball that passed through Lawrence the night before. I kept going lower and lower, ending up between layers. Once popping through a small channel of ground visibility, we made northerly progress until the ceiling dropped too far. We put down in Peru, IL (KVYS Illinois Valley Regional) with about 300’ ceilings and borrowed the courtesy car to get some lunch. When we got back to the airport, the ceiling was lower and rain was starting so we drove the courtesy car home the last 75 miles. I just got home from retrieving the plane.
 
It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones. Hopefully next time the weather will be mo better for giving rides. I remember that was always a highlight of the gathering the first 8 years I attended while still building. We’re all for yearly reunions if Greg can stomach it.

I had 1 good size dent in the roof of my car.  I have not washed the car and examined it for small dents.  I figure I got the dent as I was about 10 minutes (miles ?) from the hotel when the rain and hail was at its worst.  Valentine

Carol and I were in the motorhome when the hail fell at the hotel.  Loud, but not damage to car or motorhome.  Looking around next morning I did not see any damaged vehicles.

Sorry to hear you ran into weather but glad to know you found a good spot to land.  We’re probably going to bag the trip to MN - weather here is crummy too.
It was a good Fly In though.
See you later.  Mike

Glad to hear  from you all.  We left just before Jim & Carla and made it to Grand Island NE (KGRI) about 1.5 hours later, cruising at 6500 most of the way.  Timing was good because most airports along our route varied between MVFR and IFR.  According to Enterprise Rental Car, our car was peppered by hail and they want our insurance deductible.  Did anyone else notice hail damage?


Looking forward to the new website and next reunion.

Great seeing everyone in Lawrence this year! Made it home safely in 5 and 1/2 hours. Headwind all the way and aggravatingly bumpy south of Little Rock. Checked my transponder and mode c with Little Rock approach and mode c was within 100 feet. However, it took a bit for them to see my transponder and then it dropped out when I was only 20 miles south of them. I think my old Terra may need replacing. Has anyone been pricing replacing their transponder with an ADS-B unit? If so, what’s the best deal found?

Likewise, Jon and I looked for hail damage on the Dodge SUV sitting out in the open in the Holiday Inn parking lot during the hail storm. We found no damage anywhere whatsoever.
