Florida to California

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.

  1. I checked N40HB today at KCVH, very nice. Can't wait for an electric one with retractable gear...
