Whew. They're finally gone from Terrell County, GA. Joe, today's lead pilot, reported a good tailwind, but a HUGE fog bank en route. The team landed in a peanut field to wait out the fog. They took off later but it was still foggy and humid and rough. They flew just to the closest stopover site: Worth County. The heat and humidity was too much for crane #613, who landed and finished the trip in a box in Charlie's tracking van. Georgia seems to refuse to let go of the cranes and crew so they can enter the long-anticipated state of Florida.
