An aerial road trip along the southern border.
In spring of 2017, Dr Sophia (who had set up the “Flight for Every Mother”, from 2013) was set to attend a medical conference in San Diego. We decided this was a fun opportunity to meet up again and do some flying, so she flew out to Houston the weekend before and we set aside a few days to make our way along the southern border in my 1985 C172.
Sophia flew in to Houston from the UK – I picked her up from Houston Intercontinental in the 172, and we flew back to my home in a hangar on the West Houston Airport. A 15 minute flight sure beats a 90 minute drive, and parking the airplane and walking straight into your apartment is the best! I had a few more days of work to do before we set out, so Sophia entertained herself visiting attractions such as the NASA campus.
