    How about this route to BEECHDAY from the West Side...

    To stay under the SEA veil, keep close to the hills and below 2,500 (actually, if
    you are close to the foothills, you are good to 8,000) - use Flight Following
    anyway - there are MANY planes out there you'll never see. You can get started
    w/ Whidbey Approach (120.7) right after Bellingham.

    Coming south - the intersection is NORMY for the entrance to the pass. First
    couple times, it's hard to see I-90 until you are right on it - but Mt. Si (north
    corner of the pass) is just behind NORMY.

    Coming over Snoqualamie Pass - just stay to right of the road. At the summit, you
    cut straight across the ridge over the power line instead of following the loop.
    Snoqualamie is a MUST flight - like flying thru the ALPS!

    I've been over the pass at least 100 times and I've come over at 3,500 or 4,500
    MOST of them.

    If there's clouds, you can climb on top (usually less than 9,000) on V2-298 and
    once you cross the pass, you'll be in the clear before ELN. If I get up there, I
    pretty much just stay up there.

    Once you get to ELN, you can get back w/ Seattle Center on 132.6 for flight
    following.

    Go straight East at Ellensburg (ELN) on V2-298 to FEBUS- the Vantage Bridge over
    the Columbia - (follow I=90) then direct PSC.

    Seattle will hand you off to Chinook Approach (133.15) pretty soon after you
    cross the Columbia again. You fly directly across Hanford - stay above 3,500 and
    you can see all kinds of need stuff.

    Let down as you cross Richland (RLD) and you are there - Chinook will vector you.

    That keeps you clear of the Yakima Firing Center (R-6714 closed 0-to-a million
    sometimes!) and over more roads and airports and less over the Umptanumpt ridges.

    Easy route to BEECHDAY from Puget Sound

    I'm still hoping to make it to Vista for Beechday on Saturday.

    Hi Bob -

    That's GREAT news!

    Saw your pix on Beech Aero Club - and that Skipper's a Sharp Machine!

    Ann & I were down to Sportsman (2S6) Monday for lunch with the Kids/GrandKids -
    2.3 each way.

    Flew On Top from Hood River (8K - highest yet!) and decended over Hillsboro thru
    the holes - easy! Left here at 10AM, back on the ground by 6PM. Beautiful flight.

    Talked with the local folks (Jerry Dale) about a Musketeer/BAC fly-in 2nd week in
    July - Glen Fuqua and his wife are keeping that pot boiling (or BBQ grilling?)

    If it's not too windy - folks come thru the Gorge @ Cascade locks at 1-2,000, but
    Monday the Pireps were calling it 'very sporty' and I don't mean a B-19!

    So, you might have to climb over the broken layer like we did. Mt. Hood, Mt.
    Adams, Mt. St Helens, Sisters, Mt. Ranier - they were all out and shining!

    Once past Hood River - usually clear the rest of the way!

    Be sure to stay on the north side of the Columbia east of the Dalles - clear of
    the Boardman R-5701/5706. Best - just stay on V520 from Klickitat (the Dalles
    VOR) right toward the Pasco VOR (PSC) and contact Chinook Approach on 128.75 for
    vectors to Vista (V-520 goes right over Vista.)

    Lots of new friends and good food waiting for you there - and a Skipper from the
    Bergstrom Av School will be there.

    I'm still hoping for several Sports and Sundowners from Big Bend Community
    College in Moses Lake to come down - but school might be over by now...

    Looks like partly cloudy from PDX-DLS-S98 Saturday on WXUNDERGROUND.

    CU @ BeechDay!
