KSSI - KSSI - KAMG (flying time 2:54)
Flight Notes:
It's time to head home, all too soon but after a great stay *and* a good proof of concept. We're definitely doing this again! (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
We decided to take on only a little at KSSI and fill up at Alma, the fun unmanned airport where fuel is also cheap, so off we went down the radial. In general it went well, but it was very interesting to be flying along giving fine corrections and then suddenly be wildly off altitude or course. That *has* to be pilot-induced turbulence, but damned if I know how I did it! :-) (David Thorburn-Gundlach)

Leg Notes:
Our return went a bit better than the trip down, staying better on my radials and remembering to switch between them :-) We decided to skip going all the way to Athens, though, and bore off shortly after Dublin for KLZU and then the turn for KCNI. We had a lovely flight home and it was great to be part of -- an incredibly busy! -- ATC for the ride. [I still want to know whether or not one pilot was fooling around, because it was either a woman with a very strange voice, a very interesting trick of that headset, or ... someone on helium!]
We were still high by the time we got to the neighborhood, which I like just fine, plus we had 5 in use, so I crossed over at 4500ft before pulling around in a descending turn for a teardrop entry to the downwind leg right on pattern altitude. And, bonus, my track at the airport looks exactly like an ampersand! :-)
