Straight out of KJZP into southerly winds, so I just headed along the highway until I could turn right onto final :-) We're headed straight in for 23, too; this is about as short and simple as you can get.
Well, except for the Cherokee crosswinds, anyway... I was set up short final, at good speed and with just a tad of flaps, and probably just under 100ft AGL when suddenly I was flipped hard to the right and headed down for the trees! Yikes. I had her righted -- I *think* I was coordinated -- and had full power back in pretty much without having to think, which was cool when I finally put things together. Once stable, I headed back over to the centerline and landed with room to spare. which is a great way to end any adventure :-) Talk about scary, and exciting, and interesting, and exhilirating, and more all in one!
