I spent over six hours flying yesterday. I flew to the Philly area, 236 miles, 2 1/2 hours, picked up FilthyHippie, flew on to Wilmington (the long way, via Burlington and points east, to avoid the Philly controlled airspace, 45 minutes), back to the little airport I was using in Philly (1/2 hour), took three hours to attend a folkfest meeting, then back home (another 2 1/2 hours). Both of the long flights I was above the clouds (8500 feet on the way down, 9500 on the way back). It was fun, though a lot of work.
