BEFORE THE TRIP

Let’s give it another shot.  The LUNCH TRIP to JOSEPHINE STREET CAFE in San Antonio is rescheduled for SATURDAY – JAN 20  Departing T74 – Taylor at 12:30 PM, returning that evening.  Join us if you can.  Thanks for following! ENJOY THE JOURNEY

 

AFTER THE TRIP

After a short delay departing T74 – Taylor, we were wheels up at 1:10 PM.  Weather was chilly and bordering on IFR and we fought a strong headwind all the way, but no one was in a hurry. When we landed at Stinson Airport at 3:00 PM, Imperial Aviation FBO loaned us the “crew car” for the short drive to Josephine Street Cafe.  By the time we got there, everyone was hungry and ready to eat. As always,  Josephine’s has something for everyone – chopt steak, ribeyes, bacon wrapped filet, Hawaiian chicken and gulf shrimp, all served in a Texas Friendly setting. After an hour or so of eating and visiting, we headed back to the airport, fueled up the gyros, and were in the air at 5:40 for a quick fly-by the Tower of The Americas in downtown San Antonio, then on to a fly-over downtown Austin, and finally touching down at 6:50 at T74-Taylor.  We were sorry Ray and Chandler couldn’t join us. We’ll hold a spot for them next time. It was a fantastic day. Thanks for following. ENJOY THE JOURNEY.
