Yeah, like really flying in. I have been building an airplane for the past few years and told myself that when it was done I was going to quit my job and just take off and fly away for awhile. Well, it is done and I have given notice.
Some experienced burner friends told me that it I was trying to "reboot" my life that I should head to burning man this summer as part of my travel plans. When I found out there was an airport right there at BRC it was a done deal for me. I've got my ticket and my airplane and I can't wait!
Yeah, I've read everything I could find about the BRC airport. I'm good to go. I built this airplane for back country camping and exploring. Places you can only get to by air. My plans are to fly all over the country this summer pitching a tent and camping under my wings.
All goes well I'll be touching down at 88NV on or about 8/26.
very cool and congrats!! Please, be prepared and read all the first timers stuff on the main website. yer gonna need a fair amount of water and such, not sure about the payload of your plane.
secondly, depending on your experience, I know landing can be a challenge due to high erratic winds, at times. It might be good to see if you can contact any other experienced BRC pilots, for advice regarding time of day and such.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.
If possible, and safe, take pics of the city when you're flying in and leaving. Aerial photos of BRC are always wonderful!
Why don't ya stick your head in that hole and find out? ~piehole Plan for the worst, expect the best. Make the most out of it under any conditions. If you cannot do that you will never enjoy yourself. ~CrispyDave
