Default Stuck at home and wish I was flying!

So... I have some medical dizzy spells thing that has developed since February or so and had a lot of sitting time. Yes, I have sought medical help! Go V.A. ....
Anyway, oldest Grandson has been wanting to play Counterstrike on one of my computers and it's about full of family photos, video's and such so I've been de cluttering it and found a pile of Flight videos. Since his favorite thing to watch on a screen is RC plane crashes; I put together some to feel like I'm contributing something.....
Check it out!

Suspect those Grand sonny's are poking, prodding, and challenging the nerves of that Seaplane pilot.....
Their dad had to snatch one of them back from falling in the pond. Sometimes it's an adventure for the whole family... looks like an unpowered stall.

The Dino museum I mentioned is the National in DC. Let me think a minute.... Gonna say you'll need a full day for Hershey, full day for the Dino museum. Two days travel from Boston? I've dreamed of seeing the two museums since right before Covid hit. The National reopened after being closed for years for remodel right before Covid and then closed from Covid... So did the Tank museum. Both are roaring again though I think. By the way, I have just about matching grandsons! 3 and 5.

That sounds like a fine trip! If the water area is closed at Hershey, (colder weather) one day might be sufficient. Is that 8 hours driving fast or leisurely? Never been to the Boston area. Really want to see your tank museum before I kick the bucket...

we do the dc trip every winter on the way to florida. we drive the posted limit, leave around 8am and are south of the beltway by 6:00pm, heading for a hotel in VA, which is about 480 miles.
granted, the beltway can sometimes be bad. google says here to hersey is 6.5 hours, i assume at the posted limits

My grandson was around 3 or 4 at the time of that flight and I had been talking up the 109. He asked if it could climb a tree! So.... I would say it did!
