In the afternoon, we went to the airfield and took the plane out. No alarms flying 2 up, even though it was 90F out. We still hit ~6400rpm on takeoff, and that was generally good for ~800fpm. It was very bumpy out, so we didn't fly for long, but that's the first time I've taken a passenger with the new engine :o)

We went to a van meetup at Folsom Lake. Tilly had a whale of a time playing in the water with Vic, and we got to watch a guy in a Syncro bury his van up to the axles in soft sand, then just drive out. I had been thinking of going flying in the afternoon / evening, but I was just too damn tired.

I started the day at the airfield. It was still smoky, but at least that means it's not too turbulent.
We watched "Avatar" while Vic did some stuff for her staff picnic later this month.

In the evening, I went back and took the plane out - it was over 100F, but there was pretty much no turbulence anywhere. The smoke meant I couldn't see much though.
