December 3rd

Randy received his iFly 740 GPS, so we met at the airport and installed it in his plane.  It took a couple of goes to get everything to his liking and squared up, but it works, and connects to the EchoUAT that we installed a few months ago for ADS-B in just fine.  Now we just need the weather to brighten up so he can go out and test fly it :o)

December 1st

A new month, so here's the stats:

Randy's decided to get an iFly 740 to replace his Garmin Aera 660 and GDL-39 (what's that?  I told him to do this months ago?  You're right!), so we went out to the airport in the pissing rain to strip the old Garmin stuff from his plane.  We got everything stripped out, then went and met Chris for lunch, as he's buying the old bits for his RV-6A.

In the evening, Vic and I watched "Yesterday".

November 30th

It was a cold, wet and windy day, so we just stayed in and played with Tilly.

November 29th

The annual on the plane runs out at the end of the month, so I wanted to fly.  We met Chris at Auburn for breakfast, and he was doing pattern work at Lincoln (in his RV-6A) when we got there, so being a little late wasn't an issue.  It was pretty damned cold, but we survived.

After breakfast, Chris headed home to Cameron Park, and we went back to Lincoln, where I flew one of my hangar mates' (David) brother Jeff, who's in town for Thanksgiving.  He was really enthusiastic about the whole thing, as he's used to David's RV-9A, which is like 150mph at 7,500', so it was nice to be doing 60mph at 800'.

In the evening we nipped over to Costco to get Vic a new tablet in the Black Friday sale - her old tablet is starting to glitch.

November 28th

Today was Thanksgiving, so we had spaghetti, obviously.

We also watched "Spider-Man: Far from Home", "The Kitchen" and "Daughter of the Wolf" (which was terrible).

November 24th

We did some work in the garden, then I went to the airport and changed one of the fuel pumps on the plane.  It was a lot more of a struggle than I'd hoped, but I finished up with enough time to do a few circuits, then head out for a quick local flight when the pattern got busy (and Randy took off).  We landed just before it got back, then I headed home.

I've managed to hurt my back, probably with the contortions I needed to get the pump replaced, so I think I'm going to be taking things a little easy for a while.

November 23rd

I got up and took Tillamook for her annual inspection, the we went to the airport, then flew to Auburn to meet Chris and Randy for lunch.

We came back via the canyon, then packed everything up and went home.
