Brian & Brandi's RV-10

Disney World + Panthers Hockey


by Brandi Sunday, April 07, 2013

Last month Brian and I flew down to Kissimmee, FL for a work conference that was being held at one of the Disney World Resorts. We had to leave a day early because of weather coming in at home. It was crappy flying around Atlanta but we found a hole in the clouds and popped up just south of the city.

We spent our extra day visiting Epcot Center. It was pretty chilly for FL but we managed. That night, we went back to Epcot for "Drinks around the World" and dinner in Germany. All of the food there is amazing! Here's Brian enjoying his liter of beer!

Since we were there during the week, I took my laptop and worked from the room during the day while he was at the conference. The view was awesome!

The last night we flew down to Pompano Beach where another RV-10 builder, Lenny, lives. We meet him and his girlfriend at the airport and then headed to the Panthers vs Jets Hockey game. Brian and I are huge hockey fans (we even play ourselves) and we miss going to NHL games greatly since we lost our local NHL team a few years back. =( We decided when we built the plane that we would fly to an NHL game in every city. We have one down and 29 more to go! =D The Panthers just happened to be playing our old team (now the Winnepeg Jets) so it was great to see all of the players we used to follow so closely.

Here we are doing our favorite thing outside of airplanes... watching live NHL hockey! =D

The flight home was great but SLOW! We had a 60 kt headwind the ENTIRE way at every altitude we tried.

97 knots across the ground--ouch!

21 hours into the build. Still years away from feeling your pain. Wink
