Definitely on a track when you have the Nav Display set at 320 nm scale and only one waypoint is visible. Sweet GS but you cried on the way back home didn't you? Then its 340 all the way home.

8:58 flight time back from .....AGP!

Missed my 1st commute flight, which should have been easy.

Caught the last one home..............
