There is no fuel where we go, so it must be tankard in the aircraft. Your
flight planning has to be done carefully because there is no weather reports at
the destination. Most of the runways have not been kept up, and are muddy and
shorter than the out of date charts report.
I feel a little safer than most pilots do because the Avalon 450 lands in
less than 500 feet and has amphibious floats. If a precautionary landing must be
made, there are many lagoons, rivers and several lakes along the various routes
I will be in touch with the Web site on an irregular basis, and will send
photos of how your donations are helping out.
Incidentally, I will travel back to L.A . tomorrow to help Barbara organize
more help. Call me if you like, if you have any ideas. I'm at 1-818-901-9828.
