Birthplace bound

Harold Wolf, 80, a former Nevada County Airport manager, and his wife, Pat, have embarked on a 4,000-mile journey in a 125-horsepower Cessna 152. The Wolfs took off a week ago, heading at a leisurely pace toward St. Francisville, Ill., Harold Wolf’s birthplace on the Wabash River. The Wolfs have not set a return date, but by the time they make it home, they will have covered about 4,000 miles in their small aircraft.
