Excursions are like sightseeing trips, but to a specific event. I could go on my own, but what's the fun in that?  I'd rather get together with some students, ex-students or potential students and split the cost. Think of this as my "hey everyone, lets go on a road trip!" page. Here's what I think would be fun to do sometime.  

Merritt Mountain Music Festival

Every year I wish I could go to the Merritt Mountain Music Festival, but I always end up working that weekend. Drag me away from my job.

Arrive in Merritt via the airport, instead of by the busy roads.  We may see the headline perfomers' private aircraft there. The airport is close to town and the music festival runs a shuttle from the town to the venue.

Calgary Stampede

I've always wanted to go to the Stampede. Wouldn't you like to fly over the spectacular multiple mountain ranges into Calgary, to participate in a week long party, with horses, and a very happy pilot?  It's way cheaper to go by WestJet, but wouldn't it be fun?

Concorde Visit

One of the retired French/British supersonic passenger jets has found a home at the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field in Seattle. That's a little over an hour flight away in a C172, and I haven't seen it yet.
