Yesterday, March 1st, I was able to take a spontaneous day-trip out of cold Kentucky, to warm and sunny Florida to meet my brother (who recently graduated and is now pursuing his career in aviation).
My dad and I was shown around to where he worked and hung at, and I basically got to enjoy wearing short sleeves for the day.
After the day filled with trying out an instrumental flight simulator, sitting in a few cockpits of some Cessnas, and watching a curious duck waddle close, we returned home to the cold later that night.
Conditions did get a little rocky when our main flight home was full, and we had to make it back before the predicted winter storm would hit. So we booked another flight to Atlanta and drove the rest of the way home in a rental car.
That pretty much ends the trip, but I guess I could add that I finally got to run by Kentucky Kingdom again the day after and see Lightning Run’s track for the first time. There were even sections already put into place! Expect a photoset of that soon.
