    Me and the wife have had a Toy Hauler for years. Its on consignment now as we are shifting gears to another mode of travel. I learned to fly in 1996, had a lapse from 2003-2017, but I became current again last August. So, I'm not getting any younger so I bought my first plane. Renting for years is no comparison.

    Its almost as old as I am lol

    Thanks. I have been flying all over Tennessee and Kentucky. Picked it up in Minneapolis at end of April.

    I still feel like an 8 year old at Christmas

    I could have flown that plane when it was only about 10 years old. Took Aviation in High School. Soloed at 19. licensed by 21. Gave it up in Cali when I went to Silicon Valley. Took a couple check-rides in the SF Bay area and it was ALL WORK and no pleasure. Just not the cruising laid back experience I had in Florida.

    That and my 1st wife's cousin flew into a mountain top in the LA basin one night and she really didn't want me to do it anymore. ATC kinda helped him into the mountain. Just got his instrument rating.

    Awesome Cherokee, mang.

    But I bet it's a bitch trying to find a parking spot at Walmart.

    Well that's nice. Those Huey Cobras are pretty good at clearing parking lots in a hurry.
