After posting my first pirep and finding out that I had missed the pdf that explains the routes we are supposed to fly, I flew the first leg over again so I can say to myself that I flew the actual route, which, by the way, was alot more fun and challenging. It is even more challenging because my flight planner does not have several of the navaids in the database, so I have had to research them to find out where they are and plan my route with user waypoints instead. I use FSCommander, and it has been a challenge planning the routes with the database it created when I installed it. Fortunately, the navaids have been in the sim, so I have been able to navigate with no problem once I got loaded up. I been flying these legs keeping in mind that this is a rally, not a race. Still, I feel bad that I missed some details when I first joined this rally, so I did not get off to the best start, something I will keep in mind for the next event. Thank you for your encouragement though. Your words did make me feel better.
