You are correct, Brian. I was heading that way. What the google does not show is the power lines perpendicular to the approach and maybe not the major HI way. I new I would not make the runway plus I could not reach any one there. It is one of those unattended airports (I did not know that from finding “nearest” on the GPS).
The problem was classical. The day started with a computer problem with the EIS not talking to my Surface Pro. It took me about 10 minutes to get the 2 to communicate. I was going to record LOP at different altitudes and RPM. So I obviously did not go thru my check list very well. When the engine stopped, I looked at the EIS fuel pressure reading and saw 2.2 psi. So discounted a fuel problem. I just keep trying different throttle and mixture settings with no luck until I had to decide where I was going to set it down. I concentrated on that and never checked the fuel gage or the fuel tank selector valve. Stupid I know. I knew I wanted to be as slow as possible so I turned 90 from the airport and let it glide until it would not. Nothing out there to run into but washes. I think I hit at about 65 MPH in crusted over sand.

Thankfully it wasn’t a total disaster, and that you were able to walk away.
I can understand the desire to change course. I took that option too, about a year or so ago, and I haven’t regretted the decision. I wonder why it was necessary for you to execute a forced landing. I checked the location using Google Earth, and it appears that there is an airstrip only about 1 mile or so to the West.

The other day I experienced a hard landing that resulted in some damage to my Jab 3300 powered N332RP Pulsar III. I am fine with just a sore butt and 4 stiches in my right hand. My wife and I are both in our 80’s so it is time to change course. I have talked with 3 different Pulsar folks and all say it is repairable. Sources exist for all none repairable parts. If any one is interested in a project this may be for you. The plane is 1 of the fasted IIIs out there with excellent climb and cruise. Total time since 1998 is 764 hrs. Plane and engine.
I can send pictures and Operation Hand Book. Contact me direct at rwilhelm25(at)gmail.com (rwilhelm25(at)gmail.com) if you wish to make an offer. Prefer to sell complete as is. Location KTRM hanger C-21
