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.

May 19th

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.

May 17th

I took the day off to take the car to the dealer and get the license plate mount installed, a little dent worked on and a paint chip fixed.  While I was there, I pointed out a little interior panel that's not sitting properly, and it's apparently broken, so they've ordered a new one.  Yay.

May 12th

I took the car over to the airport to meet John around lunchtime.  I did a couple of circuits, then tinkered around with stuff for a while.  When John arrived, we flew up to Auburn, to find that the Google was wrong, they weren't open until 14:00.  So we flew back to Lincoln and took the car to lunch instead.

In the evening, Jen came over and we watched the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones.

May 11th

I started the day at the airport, where I flew in the morning, then cooked lunch before the presentation - we talked about the Young Eagles event, what worked and what we thought we could do better.

May 7th

I was working late, so I had the morning to potter around.  I installed a second garage door opener thingy, so now I can open either door from my phone.  Yay.
