Category Archives: Fun places to fly

As the title implies, fun places to fly to eat, hang out, visit etc.

Petit Jean South

Just spent the weekend in Fredericksburg Texas with the RV group, started as a ad hoc post by Dan and Kaern, and ended up with about 30+ planes and a well organized series of events. T82 is a nice airfield and the Hangar Hotel is a cool place to stay. Lots to do in the area with museums, wineries, shopping, LBJ ranch etc. Place is a tourist magnet so population triples on the weekends.

Cudos to Dan and Karen, Fred and Judie, and Bill for a fun, low key weekend.

Great Hard–8 Barbecue Run

Doug Reeves posted about a potential run for the texas group to go to the Hard 8 Barbecue joint in Stephenville (weather permitting), well of course the news travelled and it was a great day to fly so a group of us from Oklahoma decided to participate Smile

Winds were great going down with a 40+ kt tail wind at 6500 ft and the flight (292 SM) only took about 1.5 hours burning 7.8 GPH

Seems everyone had the same idea as the place was packed with a long wait line. Had people fly in from Houston, Austin, DFW area, Ok city and Tulsa.
