Trip Overview

Taylor, TX to Taste of Texas – Houston Exec (June 25, 2017)

June 25, 2017 — June 29, 2017

  • Number of Days: 1
  • Total Miles: 186


For a while, it looked like we would have to cancel the trip due to weather. At our original departure time of 1:00 PM, showers and thunderstorms still hovered over Taylor and along our route.  But, we got a break about 2:30 and were able to fly around the storms for a pleasant two hour flight down to Houston.  The folks at KTME were very accommodating in parking our gyros under their covered canopy and providing transportation to the restaurant. Taste of Texas is a comfortable place for friends to gather, and the food and service are top notch. It was great to see Chandler and Kelly.  When we departed KTME at 7:00 PM, the weather had started to brew again. We had to divert to the north toward College Station to avoid two significant storms, but, with the help of a tailwind, our ground speed was about 100 mph and we slipped through and found clear skies all the way back to Taylor T74. Thanks to KathyD, Mike and Cyndi, Bobo and Jeanette, and Chandler and Kelly for making this a fantastic GyroTrip. Thanks for following – ENJOY THE JOURNEY!


Hopefully, the weather will cooperate better than it did last time we tried this trip.. Plan to take-off from T74 Taylor at 1:00 Sunday afternoon for the flight down to KTME (Houston Exec) and an early dinner at 4:00 at Taste of Texas. We should get back to Taylor close to sundown at 8:00. Thanks for following. ENJOY THE JOURNEY!
