When I went to shave, the trimmer battery went dead just as I was left with a goatee - I managed to leave it a minute, then get enough power to finish trimming a couple of times, but I'll leave it and see what I think. All the cool kids have them, and I'm thinking of myself as my evil doppelganger :o)
I then spent a fair amount of time getting a bunch of
In the later afternoon I headed over to Lincoln, where I ran across Larry. We chatted for a while, hoping the wind was going to die down, and eventually we decided to commit aviation. I took off, and he got as far as the run up area before bailing out - he crashed his hang glider during the week and his elbow's been giving him gyp. On my second circuit, the jump plane called a 2 mile final at 4,000'... I offered to extend my downwind, but he's approaching at something like 200mph, so that wasn't necessary. As I turned base, he went around. I asked if there was anything I should be worried about (like a dead deer on the runway), but he couldn't get a green light on his nose gear. I pointed out my nose gear was down and welded, which made him feel better. Everything looked OK on his downwind, and I was still climbing out when he turned finals - I offered to go for an early crosswind, but he said we should be fine - he'd let me know if they were going around. They didn't. In total I did 3 circuits, as it seemed that the wind was picking up.
