Incredible private plane flight around the US! Who wants in?
Posted January 17th, 2012 - 6:45 pm by from Farmingdale, United States (Permalink)
Every so often I get inspired to do something ridiculous. January 2012 seems to be a great time to keep the trend alive. I am scheduled to be in Tahoe for 3 days for the Summit Series anyways so I figured why not make a two week adventure out of the 3 day event and fly myself all over the west coast, rockies and southwest with my little plane. Challenge accepted!

Here is the general itinerary with an emphasis on the fact that there will be tons of amazing food, amazing people, and amazing places which all make for incredible memories. Oh, and like any good plan, it will change.

1/21 Depart New York and fly to Mystery location (somewhere between Park City, Utah and NY). Either couchsurf with strangers, hang with summiters, or hang with new friends from entrepreneurs organization.

1/22 Depart the Mystery location and fly to Park City, UT. Visit Sundance Film Festival and catch up with friends from a bunch of different networks.

1/23 Park City, UT - either snowboard or hang out at Sundance Film Festival. Powder in Utah!

1/24 Park City, UT – Same options as day before.

1/25 Depart Park City for Truckee, CA. Hang with summit friends.

1/26 Tahoe, CA. Snowboard with Summiters.

1/27 Tahoe, CA. Snowboard with Summiters.

1/28 -1/29 Summit Series Basecamp. If you are going, great! If you are not, you are on your own.

1/30 Tahoe, CA. Decompress with Summiters or go back up on the mountain.

1/31 Depart Truckee, CA for LA (Santa Monica maybe?). Go out in Hollywood or wherever.

2/1 Full day in LA. Again, tapping into summit, EO and couchsurfing networks to find random adventures with awesome people.

2/2 Depart LA for Sedona, AZ

2/3 Full Day in Sedona. This means hot air balloons or offroading with jeeps. Or maybe just plain old hiking in the beautiful red rocks.

2/4 Depart Sedona for another mystery location. Maybe fly through monument valley? More on-the-fly adventures with awesome people.

2/5 Depart Mystery Location number 2 for NY. Arrive knowing that you have seen and ridden snow capped mountains, flown through deserts, touched the Pacific and the Atlantic, visited 8 or so states (to be determined), met tons of awesome people.

I will be flying either my twin engine 6 seater or my 4 seater single engine. This all depends on a few variables. My preference though is to take the 6 seater if I can find 3 or 4 people to join me. Depending on the exact details and how many people we get to join, it looks like the all the flying should be covered for somewhere around $1500pp, but I will be charging less for people who only take part of the trip. Just in case it needs to be said, I am splitting the actual costs and not trying to make even a dime on the flight.
