Hi Jax; (bows to the rest) ,
Sorry for the belated response -- things have been rather hectic 'round the old homestead lately, keeping me on the run!

I know what you're getting at, & believe it or not to fly there is one of the items on my RT 'Bucket List'. Surprisingly maybe, even tho I'm down here on the same end of the state, getting to it isn't as easy as it seems! Via optimal routing my best way is still 200 miles 1-way, & nearly 4 hours driving time. (Not the greatest of roads out in that region.)

Super kewl! Would have to be fun! Our RC club has something that's supposed to go about like that -- an annual 'New Year's Blackeyed Peas Cookout' per the old Southern tradition -- & it's far more than just peas! The last couple years' have turned into quite the trough-fest! I know.....after my first I sure's heck wasn't gonna miss our 2nd, that's for sure! *LOL* We also, as it turned out, caught exceptional weather & quite a bit of flying was enjoyed as well.
