In the real world, I live in Edmonton, Canada (CYEG) and as I set out into the yonder in light aircraft I’m tracking, posting, writing, and otherwise documenting my virtual around-the-world trip in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. This is another log entry from the Pilot Project

Family Flyover & a Lake Buzz

Flight Time
65 minutes

If anyone reading these logs is wondering how I'm going to fill hundreds upon hundreds of log entries for what could inevitably be a multi-year virtual adventure, three thoughts:

First, I'm making shorter haul flights now than I normally would. I think I'll be taking longer hauls to cover more distance. Multi-hour flights as opposed to forty-five minutes hopping around.

Second, I'll likely be flying only a few times per week, as opposed to playing in every spare moment I have now, having just downloaded the game.

Third, I'll be virtually visiting places I've never been before, and I think that may inspire some words, unlike today... today where I flew a medium-haul flight over more familiar local landmarks, buzzing the lake where we've gone camping in years past...

... or low flying the small city where my relatives live, skimming over their houses, and nearly fumbling a landing at the local airport...

Adventures are sure to pop up as I traverse, and hopefully those adventures... encounters... whatever sparks something to write about. For now I'm just happy to ponder how far I can go... and set up the tools and plans for when I set out.

Screenshots, videos, route maps, and lots and lots and lots of words.
