Happy Spring Break! Laura has completed her commercial long XC; now I get to backtrack a bit because of clouds.

The clouds were pretty solid at 2000 MSL, but at a runway elevation of about 15 feet we had plenty of room :-) Had a nice, smooth takeoff and headed north, past the two big towers nearby, to go back to Georgetown. The clouds soon lifted to 3000 feet, so we spent most of the flight at 1800-2000; still plenty of room, and over flat stuff, but boy did it feel low!
After a nice and easy flight, I checked in and chatted with another guy a few miles farther out and set up nicely for runway 11 -- but for right traffic! Arrrgh. I thought about just doing the landing, but since we still had room before the other guy arrived I swung around to then come back in on LEFT downwind for 11, and there we go. Yay. Then we had a forever-long taxi back to the FBO; it's actually a very reasonable and efficient triangle layout, but we ended up at the farthest point :-) I tried not to fast taxi ... and sort of succeeded. It was good to be back in the air again, though; yay.
