So at the end of last month I flew down to Port Aransas TX to have dinner with my mom, dad, and roommate. My parents picked me and Jared up at our hanger in San Marcos TX in the afternoon, we flew down to the coast had dinner and flew back with just enough time to get to the bar and brag to all our friends. Any way thought I share some pics; the best are yet to come but my pc is busted right now.

Me and pops

In flight action

So is it your father or someone that does the flying? I wasn't sure if you flew with your parents in addition to a pilot or if they might have done the actual flying. What kind of plane was it?

Definantly a fun way to spend the day though.

That is awesome! I wouldn't have eaten seafood myself (not a fan of the seafood) but other than that...cool.

You looked familiar to me in the first picture and then it hit me...you look like Johnny Knoxville. I don't know if it is the smile or what....

Do you do any flying yourself? I have always been intrested in it but it is definantly not a cheap hobby to get into. Right now I am learning to sail anyhow so that is taking up my intrests right now. Maybe some day I wil look into it.

man i forgot all about this, sorry it took so long to get back.
SuDz, yes i have over 100 hrs of flight time in several different air crafts. no its not cheap but there are some good loan groups that specialize in aviation if you really want to get in to it.
anyway here are some more of the pics, mostly the airport and coast we flew over
