I used 48 airfields in 14 states, and was welcomed into every one.
I was really overwhelmed by the friendly reception and welcome I received from all Americans.
Maybe the airfield bunch is extra special, but it was truly overwhelming!
Aussies are just as welcoming but a bit more reserved, whereas the Americans just front right up and say, ":...Hey, that's 'cool' what you're doin', come and have a coffee, and can we help you in any way...."
It's become one of the fondest and most memorable features of the whole trip!
Thanks to everyone.
