We all went to Ocean Beach for bURNING vAN 2019. Tilly was so tired heading out to come home that she had to be helped into the van :o) Just as we got home, there was an awful noise when I tried to wind the driver's side window down, so I'm hoping that's not me needing to replace the window regulator again :o(

We met up at the airport early - Randy and I, and Chris came over from Cameron Park. For want of anything else to do, we went for a flight over my newly discovered canyon. Randy's allowed to solo, but not land elsewhere yet, so we headed back to Lincoln, where it was decided that Randy would ride with Chris up to Auburn for lunch. Just after we'd landed, a couple came over and said "weren't there three of you?" - it seems we'd flown over their house earlier :o) After lunch (in our flight suits, as we were on the patio in the cold wind), we headed back to Lincoln so I could drop the gyro off and head home to start work. I left Randy and Chris heading out to get gas, so for all I know they're still flying :o)

Randy wanted to go flying, so we met at the airport early, got the gyros out and went along the canyon I flew yesterday. After an hour, we landed and I went to cook burgers for the EAA barbecue. Chris came over from Cameron Park, but too late for lunch. We sat on the EAA board meeting until he had to head back, then after the meeting was over, I went and "helped" John with the wiring in his RV6A.

Today was my Saturday, as I had to work on Sunday covering Australia. So, after playing Warcraft for a while, I went to the airport and took the plane out for a flight. I ran up a canyon from Camp Far West Lake reservoir towards Auburn, over Lake of the Pines and home again, and it was an interesting flight.
