The American system of "Flight Following" is a huge advantage. I was given traffic separation (not much there though) restricted areas, any bad weather, and it seems everything else that may be use full. Compared to the UK, it is a significant advantage. No flight plan was required and I routed direct to the destination at 10,500ft without diversion. Can't do that at home.
But I suppose comparing the size of Britain, which you could put within the boundaries of the State of Texas, I do have some sympathy.
Weather permitting I plan to move further West on Saturday. The time difference is slowly changing,and I keep altering my watch back at almost every stop. Technically I suppose I,m getting younger ! It doesn't feel that way from here ( poorer ,yes ). Although strangely, last night I purchased a bottle of beer from a service station across the road from the Hotel, as they don't have a bar. The lady asked me for my ID ! I joked that," was it to prove I was over 21" ? She didn't see the funny side. Ah,well.
