I'd like to add a request that we get started Saturday as soon as possible.....I'll allow a few minutes past 8pm to get a short briefing in about weather and time setting and for Stu to get the TV Channel started but we can't wait 15 or more minutes or we'll be dreadfully late getting to our break time.

No biggie...better late than never and the more the merrier but I'll be pulling out/off the ground by about 5 after.

You have raised a very valid point, dude. If you go to the trouble of preparing a flight, then at least people could turn up a decent amount of time before take-off.
I know real-life gets in the way some times, but, it's not as if it's not posted up MANY DAYS in advance !
Additionally late joiners / flybys can catch up at a waypoint or summit en-route.

Keep it going mates ! Aprreciate the effort you all put in.

An absolutely awesome flight VooDoo - thanks for putting it together.

Sorry my crappy PC busted me out half way through but in the time I was there I saw some of the best scenery I've ever seen FG put infront of me and look forward to seeing more of the region.

No Fear, Alex....we'll be going back to this region/geographic area again. I scouted some awesome stuff when putting this one together and have a hankering for a jet flight over similar terrain.

There's a whole 'nuther continent down there we have seen little of! :woohoo:
