Travel diary

Every year at around this time I write a travel diary of the trips I have taken during the year and give it to friends and family. This year I made a six-month trip through the West and Canada. Since the diary has photos and descriptions of some of the campgrounds I stayed in, I thought some of you might find it interesting. So I posted it to Google Drive. The file can be accessed via this link:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1heJ...Q94IQYPXYURD5H

Note-- this is a big PDF file: 80 MB, 249 pages. And there are no viruses.

Thanks all, glad you like it. I have a question: Does anyone know what type of aircraft is taking off on page 88? I think it is an Aeronca, but I'm not sure. I bet someone on the forum would know.

Mike, that doesn't look like an Aeronca to me, more like your standard Piper Cub, a J3. The exposed cylinder heads instead of the enclosed cowling is one clue. The double wing struts, solid sided wheel struts, the fold down door, and the smallish wrap around windshield are others.

Nice work Mike. I really appreciated the legible type and clean presentation; the descriptions of the photographs and the linear layout.
Carry on.
