is Frank Caruso, and I presently live in Hilton Head, SC and West Palm
Beach, FL. I began my flying at age 17, when I still lived at my
parents home in northern New Jersey. I have continued with this
avocation, on and off, for the past 50 years accumulating well over 5,000 of
logged flight hours. There were two periods during this half century
timeframe that I took a temporary hiatus from flying...early on, while I was
attending college and, more recently, for a dozen years after I sold my Twin
Comanche and began traveling for my business with a large motor home.
However, there was never a nice day, when I wouldnít look up at passing
aircraft wishing that I could still up in the air with them.
2005 I learned of the new Light Sport Aircraft rule promulgated by the FAA
which would make flying again both possible and relatively inexpensive.
I began assembly of a home built LSA in 2006 and had it completed by the
spring of 2008. With it, and with the bus style motor home, that
summer I took a three month trip to visit our Western states. I have photo
choreographed that journey in this blog and you can still access those
postings in the Places
Iíve Been - 2008 TAB section
of this web site. Now that I am finally retired, I wish to pick up where I
left off last year, to see some of the states that I had to
leave off my previous itinerary.
