Oklahoma Weekend Trip

Oklahoma Sunrise
My wife and I took our 170 up to Oklahoma last weekend for a family reunion and to try to avoid the Texas heat we flew up on Saturday morning.  It was an easy flight up with a flying time of only 1.7 hours. The town closest to the reunion with an airport was Sallisaw.  Nice little airport with a courtesy car.  The car was a retired police cruiser but much to our disappointment it had the police gear removed.  We could have made quite the entrance at the family reunion with lights flashing!
The reunion was my wife's side of the family and we enjoyed the whole day visiting with all of them.  I met some family members that were pilots so we swapped flying stories for a few hours.
Sunday morning we made the return flight with a flying time right at 2 hours.  We found 75 degree temperatures at 4500 feet.  Nice way to beat the heat!  It felt good to land back at our home airport by 9am.  By 10am we were home and enjoyed a brunch with Mom Linn.  Full family weekend with transportation provided by Cessna and a sunrise provided by God.
