For those who want to do a short cross country to get some free mountain flying training, there will be a FAASTeam seminar at Sandpoint, ID (FAA Wings credit available) on 17 June.  See:  http://www.faasafety.gov/SPANS/event_details.aspx?eid=62670&caller=/SPANS/events/EventList.aspx?zip=99205&rad=70  I don't know Hunter (one of the presenters), but Randy is a great pilot and instructor with lots of experience flying back country in Idaho.

My pleasure.  It's fun to fly behind someone who absorbs and applies techniques so quickly.

Of course, any trip to Bandera on a morning like today is more than enough compensation.

Daryl,

  That was a blast, thanks again for the fun morning.  You were right about it not being too big of a deal to fly into the mountains.   

  Definitely have to do that again!!

I enjoyed the flight as well. Nice landings at Bandera and a nice ride over Snoqualmie and Stampede Passes.

Since the free lessons are over, what about paid lessons?  I'd be up for it.

You missed out by a couple of weeks.  State airports closed October 1. 

Just like with the Mariners, there's always next year.
