Today after having completrd my two solos in the pattern Tom and I set out to the practice area to prep for the solo to the practice area.
We headed off 28N up north past Greenwood Lake. All was good – nailed some steep turns and then began heading back.
The return flight was a mess. Back over Wanaque I called 10m north of the field but proceeds to get lost. Tom pointed out Lincoln Park airport and some other landmarks but ultimate had to guide me back for a straight in to 28.
Disappointing day but I plan on spending some time with google earth and my charts in hope of doing this last solo soon.
