    We spent a couple of days at the Triple Tree Aerodrome fly-in, and left yesterday to continue our trip. I have three things to say about the fly-in:

    It is the nicest fly-in that I have attended. It is at least three orders of magnitude better than the second best.

    It is the nicest airport that I have seen.

    The food is excellent.

    Right then, it's top of the list for when I have wings! It's not too far from me, either.

    Sorry, I didn’t take any photos.

    The grounds are immaculate. The runway looks like a golf fairway.

    Two ladies in a golf cart drove up to me and said, “We heard that you need some spray waterproofing for your tent”. I gave them $20, and had two spray cans plus change at my tent in two hours. They drive around, see what people need, and make three to four trips to town each day. Golf carts that are driven explicitly to help people get around. Everyone wears a name tag, showing their their hometown, printed when you register. Most people there are repear visitors and know each other. If they don’t know you, they introduce themselves. I saw people from the Carolinas that I hadn’t seen since I retired in NC and moved back to Florida almost 10 years ago.

    Lots of chairs, including rocking chairs, from which to watch the arrivals. Air-conditioned pilots’ lounge, open 24 hours per day. Fresh coffee available at 0545. Very nice showers and toilets. Plenty of hot water. Excellent food. Everyone very laid-back.

    Check out the link in post #1.
