Not in Oshkosh, but a great weekend to fly

I may not be at AirVenture, the world’s largest gathering of pilots and airplanes, this week. But it was a fun weekend of flying.

It began with Randy Groom, with Groom Consulting, who graciously invited me to ride along with him in his awesome yellow Husky and fly over to the historic Beaumont Hotel, a fly-in hotel, for a quick breakfast.

After landing at the grass airstrip, we taxied down the street and parked across from the hotel.

Inside, Linda Pechin, the hotel’s general manager, served up coffee and hot chocolate and joked and chatted with us while we ate.

We then climbed back in the two-place airplane and headed back to town, full and happy. Now, THAT’s my kind of breakfast.
