Default Relative Ease.

My wife and I took advantage of blue skies to zip 1 hour south to see her parents. They brought the picnic, and we visited and ate lunch in rocking chairs on the "back porch" of the terminal at KARW. Perfect use of our 'time machine!'

Default Went up North

My GIB/Bride and I flew to see her parents on Moosehead Lake in Northern Maine for a morning church service on Sunday. Colors were still quite nice in the south and Mt. Washington was coated with some fresh snow against some of those colors. It took a 6+ hour drive each way into a nice enjoyable, stress-free 1ish hour flight each way. These RV's are amazing time machines.

Colors looking North near Conway NH.


Mt Washington


Mt Washington - closer

Felt good to fly, though. It had been 12 days....

Doug,
Are you a heavy handed guy?
Just kidding.
17 years of service it does not owe you any more.

Boniest fingers around.... ;^)

I need to go to a smaller sized breaker/switch anyway because the semi-newly installed AeroLED strobes pull less than the traditional strobes they replaced.

The cracks in the switch labels weren't noticed until I looked at the full size image on my monitor <grin>. I like the patina

Congrats! Very happy to see another RV-7 tipper-dragger take to the skies. Looks just like mine; less the pants on the first flight ;-) Enjoy Phase 1.
