May 22nd: Flying from Salt Lake City to Garden City, Kansas
I'm so happy to have left the gray 7Â°C Salt Lake City and being in Garden City now with nice 22Â°C!
We crossed the Rocky Mountains, and Dariusz and Josh did a great job in finding a route through the bad weather system...but 15 min before we passed the Rockies we got spanked big time!
My head still hurts, since we had some hard bumps, and at the end one 500 feet drop! No air, sank down for 500 feet and then the air cached us again...and we all hit our head on the ceiling...damn, that was a tuff one! Dariusz never experienced such a deep drop within 700 hours of flying...
We were so happy to get on ground in Pueblo for a fuel stop, no more Rockies! We flew on towards East, but another storm/hurricane system stopped us so we stopped for the night at Gardeb City, Kansas.
And while we fly, Mark Shinn is working...pod/Canada__2008_05_22.html
