Checking Out The Fog

It's that time of year again where we have to deal with the morning and sometimes all-day fog.  I haven't done too well with my New Year's resolution to fly more, but I finally did a little yesterday.  I had a little free time in the morning so I figured I'd go out to the plane to clean her up a bit and check on some stuff.  That thankfully turned in to a full wash down, an hour flight to dry her off real good, and some post flight detailing.

The fog had cleared at the home drome, but was still lingering in other areas making for some neat views.

I flew out to the west and then north towards Waycross just enjoying some easy cruise flight and listening to some tunes on the XM radio.  I turned toward the coast and flew out towards Kings Bay, GA before turning south for home.

The fog was still blanketing the north end of Fernadina Beach, but it was clear at home.

After I got back, I polished up the plane a little more including the spinner.  Kind of like those carnival fun house mirrors!

With everything clean, it was time to affix the 2012 Customs & Border Patrol sticker.  Ready for the Bahamas baby!  3 weeks to go!


  1. Thanks for a great post. You write=we read. Of course it is the down season for a lot of us. My favorite flying partner's airplane is down for annuals and some avionic upgrades, but no matter- the weather is just awful and we won't be flying anywhere, save testing and a return to home base for a coule of months. Read that a normal, seasonal stuff. Happy Landings! -C.

  2. Can't wait to hear about the Bahamas adventure!

  3. Nice post. Cool pics of the fog. I will be flying to your home base later this year in our Lance. We are thinking May when the kids are out of school.
