    Cross Country

    Group,

    Just made a cross country from T20 Texas to KBHM Alabama and back to
    Texas. Got the old bird to 12,000 at one point in the trip going and
    10,500 at the highest comming back. It is the highest I ever got it,
    Took awhile but got there. Needed to do it in order to get over clouds
    rather than fly low and hot. I was excited to see it get close to
    actual ceiling during the summer. By the way I have a 1980 Sundowner
    for those who care. I have had the plane two years. Stable as a rock.

    Cross Country

    On our return flight from OSH to BTP (via GYY) we climbed to 10,500 to
    clear the two layers of clouds and Chicago's B. We were still climbing
    at better than 300 fpm at 95 MPH when we leveled out. That's the
    highest we've flown. We cruised up there doing 95 knots indicated and
    136 knots groundspeed. Flipped the Mayor "the bird" as we passed
    Chicago...sort of a "tradition" LOL! We dropped to 9500 when we made
    our turn towards the east over Gary. We made the trip in about 4 hours
    and had almost 2 hours of fuel left when we landed (we took on 40.3
    gallons when we landed).

    Great trip, plane was perfect, and it sure beat the 13-hour bus trip we
    used to take! Plenty of room for our camping gear, sleeping bags,
    luggage, folding chairs, sleeping mats, etc. etc. We could have taken
    a third person and still been under gross with full tanks. What a
    great plane! We bought ours in April of 2004 and have put over 100
    hours on it.
