N8599K 4.0 kabi – kmgm

Abilene TX kabi. East Texas Regional at Longview kggg. Jackson Hawkins kbfl. Montgomery AL kmgm. Great flying. Smooth. Clear.

Must have been a slow day at Jackson Approach. The controller was pretty impressed when he looked up N8599K and found out it was made in 1947. Nice chatting. Turns out it was good we went to Hawkins KBFL, the GA airport as there is a landing fee and expensive fuel at the big airport.

Transponder still intermittent. GPS lost satellites a couple around 4pm. Could be testing. Tried to report to flight service but nobody wanted to know.

Downtown Montgomery very pleasant Embassy Suites provides shuttle. Couple of good restaurants. We had ribs at Dreamland BBQ. Great. Walked along waterfront and downtown historic train station. Wonderful Victorian building.

Heading out tomorrow for last 350 miles home weather permitting.
