Early Mornings at the Flying Field

My hubby and I belong to a local flying club that's chartered by the AMA.  The club has a flying field in a beautiful rural area that's a short drive from where we live.  The summer heat has made it tough to get outside and fly for any length of time. The temps here have been in the upper 90's with a heat index over 100 degrees. 

We recently discovered that 7:00 a.m. is the perfect time to fly at the field. The temperature is nice, the humidity is not bad at all, and the winds are calm.  Last Saturday there were deer on the field when we arrived and they watched us for several minutes before they retreated behind the trees. Instead of sleeping in on Saturday mornings, now we  grab some water and Gatorade, spray on some sunscreen and head to the flying field.  It's a great way to start the weekend!
