This Fly-In was For The Birds!

This Fly-In was For The Birds!

I really wanted to go to the ‘1st Migratory Bird Fly-in & Photo Shoot’ at Havana, Illinois, hosted by the Recreational Aviation Foundation. I wanted to go, I just wasn’t so sure about the 17 degrees on my thermometer at 6:00 a.m. yesterday. Yikes that’s cold! It was to be a day spent mostly outdoors and a part of me was thinking that’d be a good reason to hibernat... Read More »

Seriously, is that even a runway?

Seriously, is that even a runway?

“Is that even a runway?” was the question I received along with a link to this video about a strip in the Idaho backcountry. Hey, don’t ask me, I live in the flat lands where corn and bean fields thrive, a whole lot a miles from anywhere you’d call the backcountry! I love seeing these crazy videos though. LadiesLoveTaildraggers has a number of pretty awesome members who fly... Read More »

“All About  Me” paraphrased is “What’s Up With Judy?!”

“All About Me” paraphrased is “What’s Up With Judy?!”

“What’s up?” is a question I’ve been hearing a lot lately. Some people know I recently made a life changing decision and, of course, they’re curious and want to know the details. I’m still trying to understand the details! If you don’t know me, let me start by explaining I don’t fly for a living. I am (was) a purchasing agent for a very successful in... Read More »
