    I became aware after my recent flights when my son told me he tracked me on Flightaware. Now that we have ADS-B every flight I make is tracked. It would be fun if someone with computer skills could superimpose all flight tracks for BAC Day on one national map.

    Assuming the smoke doesn't kill VFR conditions here, I should be flying Friday, Saturday, and potentially Sunday. First flights in almost a month! Finally got the house ready to list. Photos have been taken. I have free time again!

    This weekend would be a good time to try SKYWRITING "BAC".
    This weekend would be a good time to do the "THREE STATE CHALLENGE".
    This weekend would be a good time to FLY THE "HUDSON RIVER EXCLUSION".
    This weekend would be a good time to find an "ISLAND" to land on.
    This weekend would be a good time to get up in the pattern and make one good landing.

    As for superimposing all our tracks on one map... this is a global event. That's a big map!

    This weekend would be a good time for a Pilots N Paws or other Compassion Flight.

    Well, the smoke is not cooperating. I’d say one mile visibility is optimistic, though the last time I checked, the airport was reporting 5 NM. Either way, outside my comfort zone.

    Hopefully soon I’ll have time to work on my instrument rating.

    Also, hopefully this smoke clears a bit in the next few days. I’m supposed to be heading to FL early next week.

    Hopefully, if the vfr gods cooperate, we have a 6 hour round-trip to Ocracoke planned for the 22nd.
