From KJZP (Pickens County (GA)) 2014-09-23 11:47:27 to KGMU (Greenville Downtown Airport) 2014-09-23 13:10:09 [01:23:00] with 1 day and 0 night landings.
David Thorburn-Gundlach (pilot-L) / Garrett Cobb (SIC) / Laura Thorburn-Gundlach (passenger) /
Leg Notes:
It wasn't quite dawn when we headed out, but it was only shortly after sunrise and still absolutely gorgeous. Woo hoo! We're off on a trip; yay.
Garrett was up front, so he foggled me on the way over. He kept asking me annoying questions like why my altitude was off or why my heading was wandering :-) I kept finding myself banking and had to really work on trusting the AI again.
We set up smoothly for a crosswind landing and I have to admit that my sideslip was AWESOME!!! :-) I felt really good about that one; it went exactly as planned and was right on the money. Yay!

From KGMU (Greenville Downtown Airport) 2014-09-23 17:33:33 to KAND (Anderson Regional Airport) 2014-09-23 18:08:11 [00:35:00] with 1 day and 0 night landings.
David Thorburn-Gundlach (pilot-L) / Garrett Cobb (copilot) / Laura Thorburn-Gundlach (passenger) /
Leg Notes:
After a nice visit at Airwolf, we're off to stop in at Anderson to drop off shirts for logo-ing. We were in fact not sure we were going to get out, because I don't like to scud run and I also don't want to get trapped on top, but we could at least safely make this first leg and then consider again.
I shouldn't have bragged about my landing at KGMU... This one should have been straightforward, but I really had to work it. Gaaaah! Where is my consistency?

Leg Notes:
With the shirts delivered and Garrett finally convinced to grab a bite with us, it was time to head out. Once again we reviewed the weather, and once again we had sufficient holes to make travel reasonable. We're off!
We did find some open areas and climbed up to 6500 for the trip. That put us above the clouds in absolutely gorgeous country; wow! I did take a very sober look around a few times, but we always had comfortably large holes nearby and plenty of visibility to spot landmarks; yay. That mean that we could stay up and enjoy it!
We found a nice hole -- almost a perfect rectangle like a ramp cut down through a deck! -- maybe 25nm out and started our descent. Everything went smoothly until we got into the neighborhood -- when suddenly we found ourselves on downwind with someone else! It turns out that he was closer in and no factor, but it was definitely time to break off and find him and let him continue. Once we got that sorted out, down we went.
I had to wrestle with this landing a bit, too; I was once again failing to fly a pattern and instead in precision-conserve-energy mode, which doesn't make sense for a normal flight. Gaaah! Will I ever get back into the groove?!? So it was a nice enough landing when it happened, but UGH for style points *sigh*
