The plane has been grounded under scud in upstate NY for the last few weeks. VERY FUSTRATING. Finally got it out of that area today. First flight I was not expecting to get out. Just went up staying local to get some experience in safely and legally managing marginal VFR conditions.... altitude, ceiling, and terrain awareness along with related personal limits.
Then ironically the skies opened up. Played above the scattered clouds in the sun a bit, then landed, loaded stuff and escaped to Lock Haven. Not a whole lot further South but hopefully out of the major upstate scud... Now en route to Florida from here as weather allows!
ForeFlight with ADS-B and terrain profile view provided fantastic situational awarenress on a reasonably marginal VFR flight. (will post screenshots)
Andy, sounds like you are very dedicated to your flying, building experience, and having fun as well.
Keep at it! Looking forward to meeting up with you.
