FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. -- Greetings from Fayetteville, Tennessee! Yes, it's that time of year - women pilots racing across the country. This year's race goes from San Diego to Batavia, Ohio.

My race partner is Michelle Homister, fellow WMU grad. We did our first leg today en route to San Diego. We left Battle Creek at 5:30 p.m. We flew to Batavia, Ohio, and on to Fayetteville. We are flying the course backwards for a heads up. We are looking forward to lots of fun flying and fun times meeting folks from across the country.

Blue skies and smiles!
