April 1982 in a Grumman Cheetah: Lancaster, California (WJF
) to Ft. Walton Beach Florida.
Stops in Tucson, El Paso, Brownwood, Lufkin, Baton Rouge and Mobile on the outbound.
Stops in New Orleans, Houston Hobby, San Antonio, Del Rio, Fort Stockton, El Paso and Blythe CA
on the return.
Had a little over 100 hours at the time, VFR only. Didn't think we would ever get out of Texas and met the nicest airport people there.
