Crash in the fog

I crashed yesterday, it was very foggy and the ceiling was only about 100 feet. With a little glue on the P/T and I was on my way, got 6 flights in that day.

hahaha,

That was funny, I bet you were looking more at the OSD stuff rather than outside when that happened, it was very suprising. This is usually fatal when people do this in a full scale airplane

I turned and hit a large dirt mound at the northern edge of the field and the weeds softened the crash.

You were flying VFR into IFR and then started scud running. I think the stats say that an average life expectancy of a VFR-only pilot flying into IFR is 5-10 min.
