We took the crew car into town for lunch, came back and had a nice visit with the manager about the various types of aircraft. It was clouded over when we took off, so we filed an instrument flight plan and then took off for Juneau Wisconsin. 28 down, 22 to go.

Victor and I departed KDWH to the north east and slowly climbed our way up from under Houston's controlled airspace, and then made a leisurely cruise to Louisiana, State number 29. After Landing we re-hydrated from sweating our way across an hour of hot and humid Texas sky.
On the way back there were some rain squalls. Initially cruising at 6,500 feet, Houston approach pushed us down earlier than I would have liked. I was able to delay the descent due to a cloud layer. We could have flown through it had we picked up an instrument clearance, but staying visual gave us an excuse to not descend into the heat.
