Home from Pennsylvania
This is what you look like when you wish you would have just gone ahead and got that instrument rating.
After the fog finally broke up enough to make the field MVFR and I felt confident I could get on top, we launched. It was actually no big deal to get up on top and just as forecasted the weather all around us was scattered to broken. We came back at 10,5000ft and still started getting into some build-ups over Tennessee. It would have been nice to have O2 so we could have gone up to 15K or so and avoided them entirely.
Flight was 2.6hrs up, 2.7hrs back. We actually had a nice tailwind on the return flight but we had to deviate around a few build-ups.
Again, beautiful scenery, beautiful co-pilot. What could be better?
