mrkonk and I are racing from Lake Hood (LHD) to Deadhorse (PASC) in nothern alaska. We were going to PM each other on our progress but we decided to post it here. We thought that it would be fun for others to watch.
I'm 22nm s from VOR TKA. Where are you?
Right beside 21AK.
How fast you going.160 here.
I'm appr. 5 miles ahead of you now.
not for long.
169. Fullly open.
I am 125nm s from my refueling spot, PANN. Where are you going to refuel?
Remember, take some screenshots!
Do u have a flight following? I don't. I don't like to be botthered by ATC. The chances of colliding out here are slim.
hi there myeipilot
He's my cousin. He's watching us.
Tell me when to begin again.
Hey, this is cooooollll!!!!!!!!!!!
I went when you said. I was trying to eat my McDonalds at the same time.
I'm starting my descent into PANN. Where are you?
How manymore miles you got?
I got 340 after I take-off again. How about you?
Do you have your weather current? I am starting to get a headwind I think.
Talk to you later mypilot. Hope you both have an enjoyable race.
This is fun!
OK. I refueled and I'm going for the home stretch! Another 340 miles!
Where are you???
342 more miles when you said 300
You are probally ahead of me right now because we were the same then but I had to stop to refuel. I catch up though!
I'm leveled off at 12,500 ft. again. What's your cruising altitude?
I'm going to go finish my pancakes, but I will leave it on autopilot, so keep playing.
OK. I'm back.
Look at your GPS. Do you see all those blue dots. I can't wait to see what they look like from 12000 ft! ANother thing, I was looking at your profile, I like your occupation, "Being a 12 year-old" lol!
How ya doing?
good.How many more miles you got?
238. How about you?
It will be close!
How fast you going.
Pause.My computer just crashed.I know whare I was so can you please wait.It will just take my 1 minuet.
Where you at.What mile.
120 for me.
Where ar you now? I am at 108 left to go. I am getting some cloudsand turbulence. Where are you?
Where you at now
45 miles and starting my descent.
I have to go IFR. The visibility is 1/4 mile. Check out Deadhorses's ATIS on 118.4. May the best man win!
You know how to fly IFR, right?
Yea but I am on The ground ware are you
Congradualtions! I'm flying the ILS runway 4 right now. See ya on the ground.
OK. I'm down. How did you do that approach so quickly? ATC had me fly the ILS 4 appr. and then circle to land. That was quite tricky.
He probably filed a IFR flightplan, that'd what I'd do. Because pilots with the IFR flightplans have priority usually.
Hey, what say we do another, I'm in for it over the weekend if ya wanna do it. How about a race from like the south island of Hawaii to the northernmost island? Or something weird like that? If rules will allow, can we use the Skylane instead of the Skyhawk? I'm not sure what you used, but I think skylane allows more fun and strategy because it has prop RPM as well, which allows for fuel economy and stuff too.
lol good raace
