August 22nd

I started the day over at the airfield, helping load James' new RV-6 into a U-Haul for the trip back to Palm Springs.  Chris had met us at Lincoln, and we went to lunch before James headed back, and Chris headed towards Oregon in his gyroplane.

I spent some time at the airport, taking the plane out for a while, then ran the barbecue for the EAA membership meeting.

August 20th

I started the day by collecting tools and losing them in to the gyro, then flying to Cameron Park.  Chris and I fiddled with his brakes for a while, and eventually ended up lifting the front of the plane on 2x4s so we could get them properly bled.  Now they were working, we flew to Oroville to meet Randy and his friend David for lunch.  On the way home, we flew over Paradise and saw all the rebuilding going on after the fire there.


August 19th

I've taken the week off to do things and stuff, and ended up at the airfield helping Chris change the oil and grease the pre-rotator cable on his gyroplane.

He then wanted to look at the brakes, and we managed to take them from pathetic to non-existent.  Yay.  Still, he managed to get home.

We took the plane up to Auburn for breakfast, then (hopefully) fixed the zip on the little storage bag when we got back to Lincoln.

August 17th

I got up early and headed to the airport to cook breakfasts at the display day.

After we'd packed up, I met James and Jeff to get James' new RV-6 all packed up and ready to put in a truck and drive to Palm Springs.

I spent several hours updating all the Windows machines in the house to 1903.  Thanks, Microsoft :o)
