Simple question,list sites where if you are courteous,follow protocol and experienced (previous hang 4 25 yrs.)you can show up and fly without getting hassled ?

Guess we might call those Free-Flight sites....
Even in California, there are unregulated sites. Don't expect, however, that the locals won't be sizing you up. Just the typical questions, but nobody wants to draw attention to their favorite unregulated site by letting someone with sketchy skills or equipment need a helicopter ride out. I'm not saying that's you - just saying.

But let me add: always contact the locals first. Show them respect & listen to their advice. Then you'll quickly be welcome to fly their sites with them.
Didn't happen that way in the 70's. It became a question of who you knew. If you knew a guy who knew a guy, then maybe you were okay. Maybe.
And their site was always the hardest, most critical site in the world to fly. That's why they had to be so careful about who they'd let fly it.
