March 24th Port Pirie to Gawler

At 8.50 the next morning we departed to overfly Adelaide and head for Gawler.  Once again punching head winds.  Upon requesting to overfly Edinburough Military Airspace,  Adelaide radar refused clearance and directed us over towns X and Y – neither of which could be found on the maps.  We chose to track down the light aircraft lane to overfly Parafield and turn north to Gawler.  Our groundspeed immediately shot up to 140k due to the tailwind.  A speed like that is unheard of in the Stinson!
Reaching rwy 23, Gawler at 10.10am such a short pleasant flight – we touched down to find Mark Michel waiting to meet us.  We were one day late to catch up with Robyn – my sister, who had to go away on business – however they were fed, and accommodated by Marc at his beautiful property at One Tree Hill.
