Phoenix Area Folks - Something Cool To Do Saturday
« on: October 25, 2017, 05:11:18 AM »
Want to see something like 500 airplanes of all types? It costs $5/person or $10 for a family of four, at Falcon Field in Mesa. I'm planning on going Saturday, October 28, 2017. Let me know if you're interested and we can try to meet up. Parking is free.

I've definitely noticed. Went from a little over an hour to an hour and a half plus now. Making me rethink my life choices.

I drive from, basically, Idaho and Lost Dutchman (Brown Rd) via the 202 Red Mountain, to AZ 51 and Indian School five mornings a week. I leave home at 6:30 and almost always arrive right about 7:15; not bad. Snowbirds are a small part of my commuting reality, maybe they don't get up that early or something.

I didn't go to the fly-in. Didn't feel like going by myself and just stayed home and did virtually nothing. Naps are cool, though.
