    Ask you AOPA regional coordinator.
    Check out https://theraf.org/ for ideas.
    There are tons of great places to explore all over the country.
    And it's great fun flying into Johnson Creek in a Tri-Pacer; the Supercub guys know we can carry in a lot of beer in a Tri-Pacer so you are never lonely.

    I thought you lived in California, was I mistaken?
    And do you have 700x600 tires on the mains, and 600x600 on the nose, or ???
    Post a photo of your plane showing the wheels!

    Tri-Pacers make very good Backcountry airplanes.

    Glenn, my wife and I moved to Merritt Island Florida in the spring of 2018. I donít have 700 x 6 tires on my Tri-Pacer now. I would put them on if flying to backcountry locations.
