Thank you all. To respond to a few comments:
I will practice my landing at a long field and ensure that I am very comfortable at that length with a good cushion. If conditions upon arrival are not favorable, I will go to a larger alternate.
I am pretty comfortable in crosswinds but as always, I set limits for myself. As for runway length, I’m currently limiting my landing choices to 3,500’ minimums, but have had no problem stopping in less than 2,500’ (if I want to). Actually, I hate using my brakes and do not mind rolling out. I’ve already paid for the runway, and if I do not cause any other pilots hardship, why not? In my practice, if I cannot stopp in less than 2,500’ consistently, then I will not try it there.
OH, PS: The reason I picked this field is that the folks we are visiting live much closer to it compared with any of the alternates. much shorter
