May 25th

We took the car over to the dealer to replace a little plastic part on the dashboard.  After a while trying to fix it, they discovered a service bulletin saying that the whole dashboard needs to come out to fix this.  And that'll take 4 hours.  During the week some time when the parts come in.  Yay.

I went over to the airport and got in John's way working on his RV-6, then waxed the rotors on the Magni and took it out for a quick flight.

We watched "Ant Man and The Wasp" to try and get up to date with the MCU.

May 20th

Kerry and Dan got to play with Tilly after putting their dog, Tembi, in the car.  As they were only staying the night, we didn't really have time to catch up or introduce the dogs properly, so we just kept them apart.

After work, Jen came over and we watched the last episode of Game of Thrones.

Kerry and Dan were driving from San Diego to Corvallis, and stopped to say "hi" and crash the night with us on their way past.

May 18th

We were supposed to be cooking breakfast at the airport for the display day, but the weather wasn't cooperating, so that was called off.

I ended up going to the airport to meet Chris to look at a Europa and go for lunch.

After that, I worked on the DRZ - I figured out that I could test the flat valve for leaking by blowing in the fuel hose, and that seems to be working OK.  I took the tank off and fixed the throttle cable, then put everything back together.  I still need to change the oil again, as I'm pretty sure it's contaminated with gas, but for now I think we're getting there.
