Since all you did was suggest a fly in 4 months ago and others set the date and continued the discussion, looks like it is still going to happen with or without you. Weather permitting, Iíll be there.

Still hope to see you all at L52 sometime soon.
You'll have a lot of fun once you get that ticket! I flew a spam can into HAF yesterday for lunch - ceilings were actually higher than usual. Hope they get the AWOS fixed soon though. Doing IMC approaches into those coastal airports is a blast and great experience.

I'm far more worried about the smoke in the Tahoe area preventing me from leaving than the weather in Oceano. I'll also still be there if weather permits.

Default We land and get tied down at Oceano...then what?

As a CFI, one of my favorite discussions is with students showing me their XC mission planning. They work so hard on routes, calculations, and other planning and are proud to tell me how they are going to get to whatever airport they planned. I love to then ask..."so you landed on the runway, then what?" Usually, the blood drains from their face as they realize they have no idea what to do on the ground at their selected airport. Very funny.

To avoid making that mistake myself, once we tie down at Oceano for all this fun...then what? Are we meeting at a hangar, or restaurant, or just walking around? What should we look for?

Thanks!

Thereís a restaurant about a 3 minute walk from the airport. Itís a railroad car or something like that. I would assume some will grab a bite there..

It depends what the beach scene looks like. I'll decide on final; rather my passenger will decide while I fly final. Just saying....

Default Can You Say "Labor Day Weekend"?

I don't know how many of you have been around the "Tri Cities" area during any holiday period - but it gets pretty crowded.

Just Sayin'

Default SBP backup

I'm based out of KSBP and plan on hopping down to Oceano if it's clear. Really looking forward to it!

What to do when you're there: short walk to the Rock n Roll Diner (train car) or Old Juan's Cantina for Mexican Food, or a little farther to Sylvester's burgers for a milkshake, or the other way down to the beach (there's a little candy store at the end of the road, too). I wouldn't worry for a minute about Labor Day crowds. If it is crowded they'll all be off roading on the beach.

If the weather at Oceano is a bust, but SBP is clear, I don't mind picking up a bunch of Costco dogs and hosting a little meet up at my hangar. I'm West side of SBP (self serve fuel side) right behind the Avionics Shop.

Hope to see lots of folks next weekend!

I will be in SoCal for meetings this week until Friday. My plan is to try out some airplane camping at oceano as long as the ceilings cooperate Friday night. Hope to see you all there on Saturday!

Default Fly in

I will be there (weather permitting). I might be a tad late as I might fly some young eagles in the morning
