For the annual fly-in to Marble on the second weekend of September, Sue had only flown in as a passenger with Bob. But this year Sue wanted to take her plane which frees up Bob's plane for another partner who wanted it, so Bob and Sue will go to the fly-in in Sue's cessna... which means Sue should go practice there first with a locally experienced instructor, like JohnM who graciously agreed to take the day to instruct. Since we already had to get permission to fly into the private strip for this practice day, Bob figured it would be fun to go up there too in his Cessna with RandyB another mountain instructor, and Jer/ came along too with Bob and Doug.

Much fun flying into Marble, then Glenwood Springs for fuel, then Kremmling for lunch, Longmont to top off on fuel, then back to FNL.
