    Super Mouse is Home

    Shannon,



    Congratulations and welcome to the family!

    Your confidence may have been a little iffy in those mountains, but you will
    see that, having done it, you will be a better, more aware pilot.

    In '02 I flew from Massachusetts to Oshkosh, then on to Minneapolis and then
    back. Perhaps it was premature for such a big trip. But never again have I
    been afraid of distance in an airplane. Confidence comes from 'doing", not
    just studying and thinking.

    Well I finally jumped in & became an aircraft owner this week. Scared &
    excited all at the same time. Have not figured my total fuel bills
    after getting it home, but the trip in itself was an adventure. Left
    Carson City, NV on Tues afternoon after snow cleared. Flew to Laughlin,
    NV Waited on weather Wed then on to Dodge City, KS on Thurs. Plane flew
    well. Mountain turbulance & weather was a challange but 50S handled it
    ok. She is not a prom queen, but seems to be just a good honest gal.
    Thanks to all that gave me mountain flying info earlier in the month.
    Bill Heybruck. I will get your cd back to you soon. It really helped.
    Nothing to do for now but fly. Man did the TX panhandle look good after
    I got past Albuquerque, NM. Mountains were pretty, but my comfort level
    shot up in the FLAT LANDS.

    Shannon,

    Congrats!! The Super III is a very capable airplane. I think you will enjoy it. Sounds like you had a challenging trip home. I have waited the weather out a couple of times and glad I did. I also have crossed the Rockies from time to time. The Rockies themselves didn't create as much pucker factor as the North Cascades do. There's a few places to land in the Rockies. Isn't it funny how the further East you go, the smoother the engine gets?

    Shannon,

    Congratulations on your new airplane! I believe I flew that very plane back in 1994-1995 and really enjoyed it.
