Dear Family and Friends,
I hope all is well in your life and you are enjoying the beginning of a New Year.
The end of the 10 year world flying adventure has arrived. The last leg was south thru mainland Mexico and north up Baja, Mexico to end back in San Diego where Lucky Lady Too and I departed a decade ago. Mexico is one of my favorite countries. I find the people warm and lighthearted, the colonial cities gorgeous and reflective and the beach communities relaxing. Not to mention the tequilla. This last month was a tequilla tour with a flying problem. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. So it is that Lucky Lady Too and I arrived back in San Diego on Jan. 8, 2011 to a warm reception of friends and media.

One of the TV stations that covered the event:
From the Pacific Flyer to be in February issue:
To those of you who offered encouragement, a cold beer, a hot meal or a warm bed for the night, I am deeply grateful.
I want to thank you for all your help with making this a success and a most interesting decade of my life.
And my sincere wish is for you to also live YOUR dreams and to sqeeze as much juice out of life as you can.
All the Best,
Bob Gannon and Lucky Lady Too
