I've taken the week off to do some flying with Henry, so I went to the airport. He'd already had a flight out to Folsom Lake, so we chatted and looked at planes and stuff, then went and got some lunch. Afterwards, we took the planes out for a short, bumpy flight. Hey, it was the early afternoon - I'm sure people in fixed wings weren't having any fun at all :o)

I went to the airport and helped Henry, one of Randy's friends who's travelling the country, unload his gyro from his trailer and install the rotor with the winch attached to the side of the trailer. While he headed out to lunch with his brother in law, and I went for a quick flight.
In the evening, we watched "Godzilla vs. Kong", an animated movie with a few people thrown in.

I picked Randy up and we flew to Oroville for their display day. Bill was opening the hangar when we left, and he beat us there in his RV-6 by about 30 minutes :o)

I went to the airport and finished up the 200 hour service on the plane - just cleaning and greasing things, mostly. While I was there I took a look at Randy's plane, he's had a few incidences of resistance in moving the cyclic, so we're going to take a proper look at it on Saturday - nothing jumped out at me though.

I flew to Oroville to meet Chris and Tim for breakfast, and we wandered over to the hangars to talk to Merle, who's tinkering with a Onex. I also got to chat to Peewee, who's something with the EAA chapter there - they're hoping to get the city to charge cost for their avgas on their display day next Saturday. I don't care, but that'll cheer up a bunch of guys at Lincoln who usually head up there.
As usual, I was too low for the ADS-B stuff to show up.
When I got back, I started in on the 1200 hour service for the plane. I've done all the engine work, now I just have some greasing to do on the pre-rotator and rotor head and I'm set for another 100 hours :o)
