Did not plan the x-country with the knowledge that a controled airport would be in such close proximity to my uncontrolled field. Secondly, I did not notice (looking in my airport guide) that both airports would have same # on each end of active runway, which would be seen when in the sky. (I landed at the wrong airport.) landed at palomar, not oceanside.
