Mexico trips to dirt strips, lots of trips to the coast with approaches near mins. I’m not saying you shouldn’t have minimums, just put it in persective when you see accident reports on T.V. Also, all of our trips have a kids component to them (Lego Land, Whale watching in Mexico, Orca watching in Washington State, Zoos in San Deigo, Aquariums in Long Beach and Monterey). My kids have it pretty good! BTW: Don’t forget to warn them about the teenagers with M16s before landing in Mexico.
Also, as circumstances would have it, the volunteer vacations trips have included unscheduled stops, also known as human endurance diversions. Others may see it differently, but even though I planned 200-250 mile legs (~2.5 on the hobbes), there have been at least three legs where we did not make the airport of intended landing. It was good, for-real diversion practice. It can add in-flight workload, but I think it’s good to actually execute diversions. When the weather is not as planned, it’s always good to be ready to execute a plan to go where the weather is better. Having done it, I can say that the replanning and refilling are no big deal. In other words, I know the consequences of a diversion and would have no issue executing one, no matter how precautionary.
