Hi FastEddieB,


Somehow, weather report changed and we are thinking to go on tomorrow morning.

Wind will be anywhere between 20-25 constant tomorrow.

All we need is little lower than that to take off from Liberal, Las Vegas, NM & Santa Fe are forecasting 8-12 constant all day tomorrow.

So, once we get out of Liberal, we will be OK. Right now, TAF shows 10-24 gus, but METAR says 9kts constant. TAF is wrong in our favor!


Hoping for a little lower wind & right down the runway would be wonderful! Let's see what happens!

I used to fly into KIGQ several times a year when my MIL lived there.  Earlier this year I left Aurora for Dallas and the winds were 50kt at 3000ft.  During climb I was doing 40kt on the ground.  After 4 hours of flying we put her down in Marion, IL and spent the night.  I won't do that again.


I did do Sturgeon Bay (KSUE) to Dallas with one stop in October.  It requires a tailwind to do  it in one day (850 nm).
