So, a couple of weeks later, we decided on a short trip to Ithaca, New York, for just the two of us. With Cathy in the back, connected by headsets, we set out on another perfect day. Again, I marveled at the airplane. I was pleased with another good landing — she’s a pretty easy airplane to fly. I sought out a Cornell University sweatshirt in the campus bookstore, but it was over $100. Married to a new airplane, with a jet to feed, I am a man on a budget.
