Why go for a Night Flight?

Flights at night are great because all is calm, usually quiet, and the view during the preflight is unbeatable! 🙂

Farewell to Miami

I’ve been crazy busy the last few weeks (who isn’t?). Some changes are happening. I moved to Miami barely a year ago and I’m moving yet again. While I’m happy to be leaving Miami (Florida just isn’t for me), there is some sadness to it…take a look and see why! 🙂

I’ve enjoyed my time here and it has been a great experience, but it is time to move on!

Be back soon,

(I recently discovered Instagram and now have a gallery open to purchase any photos you might like, including some from this post: instacanv.as/cskarp – all support is appreciated!)

Love of Sunsets…and Ducks!

Ducks out on patrol! 🙂

Okay, I love sunsets! Probably because I’m wide awake for them compared to the opposite time of day!

So, is it just me or is there something in the water in the second photo? I didn’t notice until I got home and looked… 🙂 Weird.

To many sunsets,

Love of the Mountains

I haven’t done any major or “hardcore” mountain flying just yet, but I have done a little. One of my absolute favorite places to go in the Sierra Nevada mountain range (so far!) is the small town of Quincy, CA.

Nestled in a valley at about 3500 feet, it would be what I consider a well-kept secret! I’ve gone in there several times, and always make sure to stop at the Morning Thunder Cafe, which is about a 10 minute walk, 15 if you take in the sites, plane to doorstep.

I even flew in there once on a Father’s day fly-in and got to see a little more than I thought I would! Made my day, my friend’s too!

So if you’re looking for beautiful scenery, small town and feel, and good food (huge portions!), then fly to Quincy (Gansner Field “2O1”)!

Happy Flying,

Up in the Air
