Off to Lakeview

Yesterday I "cross-trained" (rode along with another pilot, observing) on AMF1968, which is a run that goes down the Oregon coast carrying boxes for UPS. It's a pretty route; the leg from Newport to Florence is flown at low altitude down the shoreline, passing the famous Heceta Head Lighthouse along the way. Today, however, I'm flying to Lakeview, OR, which is neither scenic nor hardly populated. Eight hour layover in the armpit of Oregon - yeah, that'll be fun. Bringing the laptop with because, remoteness notwithstanding, the layover motel supposedly has wireless internet. Coming right up: Blogging from Lakeview!
