After getting past the strange feeling of flying alone, I figured my next milestone is to do a cross-country. I had asked my instructor a couple of weeks ago where he sends his students for their solo cross-country. He said he sends them to Modesto (KMOD) and Columbia (KO22). So that is where I went today. Considering it was a 100 degrees today, it felt nice to get some altitude. Nothing complex about today’s flight. A simple stop and go in KMOD and a full stop and taxi back in KO22 then home. Plenty of surface heating to contend with on flare.
