…too early, 0330 local. I was up and wandering around in the dark. Body clock obviously doesn’t know I am in the USA, but my body temperature sure does.
Plan is.. OK was, to get an early start and get into lakeland before the traffic or thunderstorms… So everything packed away for sunrise and….
I’ll hold off the story of the first day, other than to once again thank Mr John and Diane Roberts at Homestead. Without the top up fluids I can only imagine the cramps I had in both hands and arms, whilst flying, would have been a lot worse. Diane, an extra thanks for driving to Budget car rental and bring me back to the airport, a much needed time saver.
And at Arcadia, my thanks to George and Joyce Chase, for driving out to the airport to welcome me, and, for droping me off in town for a bite to eat. I needed that steak!
Arcadia airport boasts a purpose built, self funded (by friends of arcadia airport) camping ground for pilots and aircraft. A much needed shower was had, thanks to the superb facilities.
Just need the fog to lift….
