April 18th

We went out on an expedition to buy things and stuff, and came back with a new television, amongst other things and stuff.

We went to the Roseville Earth Day event, and looked at all the hippies, while I looked at the electric cars - there weren't any electric motorcycles this year.

When we got back, I got the TV installed, and started the arduous process of calibrating it, and getting the Harmony remote set up to use it.

In the afternoon I went to the airfield, chatted with Richard, Lance and Jim, then went and found that the fuel sender correction factor on the Flightstar was correct, so I'll need to re-initialise that, and possibly replace the damned thing if that doesn't fix it.  When Jim had taken off, I got the plane out and it looked like Jack was going to fly over to Far West Lake, so I started doing some circuits while I waited for him.  Gary and the Danny joined me, but it was getting too close to getting dark when Jack finally took off, so I did a few more circuits and landed.  While I was doing circuits, Vince had arrived in a Rans S-4 that he's just finished tarting up.  We chatted for a while before he had to head out to get home before dark.  Jack and Danny landed just as the sun disappeared over the horizon, and they fly faster than I do, so I figure that was a good decision.
