The real challenge is doing it in a light aircraft like the Mooney or the Baron.
That's what I'm doing now, in between flying assignments for my VA.
Started at LEleystad, now in Narsarsuaq (Greenland) and will fly on to Gander tomorrow. From where then? I don't know yet. I think I'll hug the coast to Cape Caneveral and go west from there, then up the west coast to make the crossing into Asia via the Aleutan chain.
