In early September I made a Solo Trip to New Brunswick. I called it a Courier run as I filled the plane with birthday and Xmas gives from my parents on the return. The goal of the trip was to see if I could make it home (Across Canada) in one day. West to East. I saw that good tail winds on Windy were forecasted so I left home in the dark and watch the sun rise in Saskatchewan.
First stop was St Andrews Just north of Winnipeg, 3.6 hrs and 650 NM. It was a smooth run all the way.
Next leg would take me direct to Timmins, 3.2 hrs and 680 NM. Nice tail winds!
Had some nice fresh carrot snacks in the smooth air.
After a fill in Timmins I headed Direct for Bathurst. There was some weather ahead and I knew I may have to call it quits.
Sure enough I had to get down and weaved my way into Roberval.
Set up the tent as there was no way to get in or out of the airport after hours unless you pay a call out.
Next morning, I got up and was airborne as the sun was coming up.
Not long I was descending into Bathurst covering 1950 NM in 10.2 hours. It was great to see the family.
While in Bathurst we even had some RV10 Visitors. It was nice of them to stop and go out for lunch on their trip to Iqaluit. The RV makes the world a smaller place for sure.
