Here are pictures from my Spring 2004 trip to PA in my 1966 Piper Cherokee 180, Muddlin' Thru. My good pilot friend Iris flew back with me, sharing the flying.

First stop north bound and south bound, Charlotte, NC for an over-nighter each way with my sister & brother-in-law Sandra and Bob.

Bob's craftsmanship, a model Cherokee to hang from my ceiling.

Made it to PA, supper at Braddock's with Mom & Pop



Cigars & talk on the front porch

Would you believe she turns 50 in December?
