Hotel, schmotel. Dirtbagging can be a lot more fun sometimes.

Aw Hell

I'm in too, good luck, hope it gets better. Don't they teach pilots how fuel is considered vital to powered flight nowadays?

Quite a trip! What tires come stock on that thing? I imagine a semi-knobby? I'm headed to Key West in July (but on the big bird); wish I had some time for an adventure like yours.

Since they do not teach reading comprehension down where you live I will provide you with some assistance. They are having an adventure so instead of making it a mundane boring trip straight down and straight back they are doing it the fun and interesting way. In fact, this entire website is based on that concept, pretty neat isn't it?
Wow Telejoho, you just got BITCHED by this guy! . He likes his laundry with no starch and cool pressed, We know why you got those new knee pads! . Wow, just wow!

^^ +1. good luck. Hopefully the 610 has a much nicer seat than my 250. I just did that trip recently in a Camry pulling a jetski (2800 mi roundtrip from Gansett to Miami and back), and I was sore after that drive!

Being a pilot myself, what I want to know is, how in the HELL does a plane
from RI headed to Florida end up in ALBANY???
That's in the wrong direction!!!
....and....
If that flight was INTENDING to go to Florida, a distance of "about" 1000 miles, by FAA law it should have had enough fuel on board at takeoff to
reach Florida PLUS enough to fly another hour in case of emergency!!
WTF?????

My guess would be that it really wasn't fuel, but that fuel was a great excuse for something else
