Arrived in Hollister, CA yesterday, to deliver N40HB to Hugh. It was a beautiful flight, full of great sights, fairly good weather except for headwinds, and almost perfect performance from the Phoenix. Why not perfect? Had a flat tire in Boulder City when I stopped for fuel. So it became an overnight stop to fix the flat, and then tackle the Sierra Mountains in 50kt winds aloft.
I'll post a trip report as soon as possible. In the meantime, a few photos:
The green rolling hills of Hollister are a different shade of green than Florida, due to the yellow flowers mixed with the grass.
