While you're looking straight ahead out your windshield, and without consulting any references, jot down a guess or so as to where you are.
    The title gives you a clue. Here are a few others: You're somewhere in the area covered by your New York-Boston chart. You're on the ground, but you're not at an airport. You're not supposed to be where you are, even though it's a public place.
    While you're guessing, look out anywhere except straight behind you. That's the last resort. Look out both sides, at all angles. Look down.
    Then, when you give up or think you've guessed it, look behind you.
    Sure enough.

Now, before the police arrive on the scene, make an exit. Note that the wind is at your back, so perhaps you'd best turn around for your takeoff. Then, just take off normally. Grass makes a great strip. But watch out for bicyclists and other strollers.
    Enjoy a little flight around the landmarks and then head for the nearest airport.
