Seligman - Lake Havasu / Cessna 182RG II (N7049S) / VFR

This flight of just over an hour took me from Seligman to Lake Havasu. Neither city has much to recommend it, but the flight was pleasant. I even flew over the speed traps in Kingman.

This was mostly pilotage; I essentially followed Interstate 40 for most of the way, first at 8500 feet, then down to 5500 after I left Kingman. The weather was very clear. My Internet connection was working well enough to let me fly online with real-time weather, for the first time in several days.

The landing was extremely smooth, at almost exactly noon local time. This tiny Cessna is so slow that you can practically read a book during the approach and still land on the numbers.
