Default What did you do with your RV this weekend. (Nov 16-17, 2019)

Randy, Rob and I flew over to Breckenridge, TX Friday early to look at an airplane restoration project. The Wx was cold (31*F) but the air was still and smooth. I took a quick pic of the RVs on the ramp without a thought, and only later realized they were ‘in order’.

Sorry to hear about how cold it was in Texas this morning, DR...

15*F when I got to the airport this morning in Michigan. Super smooth air and amazing performance in the cold air. Local group of our guys went out to breakfast at Brighton, Michigan (45G) for breakfast. Tomorrow is Owosso, Michigan (KRNP) for anyone interested!

Default First Night Fligh

Spent Friday night doing 10 takeoff/landings in my RV-6A. My first night experience as PIC...it was quite a challenge and thrill. My instructor had to save me on the first landing as I wasn't flaring soon enough, but I got the hang of it after that. I am looking forward to getting out there again at night for my cross country!

Default New Plugs....

Had not flown in almost 2 weeks as wife was out of town and had to be home monitoring and ailing dog. Starting the plane had been getting more difficult. Put in new plugs. It started in 2 blades. Leaned back to 3 1/2-4gph and putted around looking at property. Decided to sign my name in ADS-B. My skywriting is almost as bad as my penmanship...

Flew a Flying Samaritan?s trip to Baja Mexico.
Departed Muleg? this morning in ankle deep muck during a brief respite in heavy rain. There is no replacement for displacement.
