Solo to Practice Area Prep

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.
