The annual KR gathering was held at Lee's Summit KXLT in 2017. This is just south east of Kansas City.
811MS it was a nice flight out, I was testing the autopilot for some interesting things to do in the plane, but once I got it working there was even less to do...
A calm cool 4 hours take off to landing.
I got lucky flying in as the main runway was closed and the wind was high. for over the last 30 minutes the wind shifted from 90 degree cross wind to a 5 degree, so landing was easy.
Mike the proud owner/builder of 236MS just certified days before the gathering.
One of the local EAA members picked all local beers for the events.
The trip home was a different story. There was a front I had to cross. bad weather spanning from Mexico to Canada, not really any way to fly around it. I flew to Hays Nebraska which was as close as I could get without flying through.
After waiting for weather to improve and meeting several other pilots with the same issue (two coming from a Bonanza gathering). I filed IFR and I was ahead of one of the Bonanzas who eventually passed me on his way to KFTR.
I was routed to 12L RNAV and the clouds dropped and I was re-routed to 30R ILS.
