Dear fellow travelers,

The mad ducklings in training, Edie and Oliver,  were out again to test the limits of single day adventures.

Travel mission:
1. Pack 2 people, 2 Montague X70 folding bicycles and lots of gear into a Cessna 172 single engine airplane
2. Fly from Roanoke Regional Airport, TX (52F) via Possum Kingdom Lake to Abilene Regional Airport
3. Ride the Montagues 20 miles to Buffalo Gap, TX
4. Purchase world famous egg poachers from George and Wanda Holland
5. Ride to Perini Ranch Steakhouse for a delicious lunch
6. Bicycle back 20 miles to Abilene Regional Airport
7. Fly home to arrive just before sunset

To sum it up: It was fun, it was a lot, don’t try this at home, kids, unless you are certified on more than one sort of craziness 😉

Enjoy the pixies below.

Signing off with warm thoughts,
Edie and Oliver FlyRideDuckling

George could not believe that someone could be as crazy as us and fly-bicycle to him.

Edie almost ran this guy because she was so hungry for lunch.

Packing Montague X70 folding bike into airplane

The fine folks at Abilene Aero wondered about our sanity when we started to pack up the airplane.

Lots of stuff for a little airplane but it all fit in nicely. Just slide it in an hook it...
