New Musketeers

Sara's friend Stan Gudmundson came out from Colorado for a visit. The Gudmundsons lived in Gardnerville for a number of years prior to their move to Colorado. I promised him and Sara a flight in the Musketeer. Three and half years ago my friend Don Dixon and I started to take flying lessons. After we got our licenses we bought into a partnership with Adam Wiese to own a 1967 Beechcraft Musketeer. We've been flying it around for the last two years.

It was a beautiful morning for a flight. We flew up over Kingsbury Grade and then over Lake Tahoe and the Lake Tahoe airport. then it was over Luther pass and through Hope Valley bake into the Carson Valley and back home to the Minden Airport. The weather was calm the Musketeer was in fine form and I still remembered how to fly.

What a great post. Loved seeing the Lake and hearing familiar names like Kingsbury Grade and Lake Tahoe. Just read Jesse's blog and I miss you all. Give Marla a big hello. Love you guys!

Man, the valley and the lake are so gorgeous! Good thing I've got a pretty view out my window. I'd be tempted to hop the next flight home!
