September 26th

Dad and I went to the airport and started the big service on the plane.  Things were cleaned, oiled, greased, tightened and replaced.  Oh, and one thing was broken.  It's not all finished yet, but it's mostly done.

September 25th

We went to the renaissance faire in Folsom, where we met Shane, Liza and Sara and arranged to go to dinner in the evening.

September 24th

Dad and I got up early and headed to pick Randy up to drive to the airport and fly to Cameron Park for the Props, Cops and Rodders show.


It was cold on the ground, so we wrapped up warm only to find an inversion layer at around 300', where it was warmer.  It got cold again on finals into Cameron Park.

We parked with Chris and Chris and Ray outside PJ's house, and alternated between looking at the cars etc at the show and sitting in PJ's driveway talking.  Vic and Mum drove over and joined us.

When we'd watched the flybys and got hot and tired, we headed back to Lincoln.

When we got back to Lincoln, Randy had managed to get a puncture and roll the tyre off the rim on his gyro.  We put air in the tyre, pulled it into the hangar and put a new innertube in before heading home.

September 23rd

I'm trying to get the hours on the plane to 1400 in time to do a major service early next week, so I flew Mum to Auburn to meet Dad and Vic (who drove up.)

After lunch, I flew Dad back to Lincoln while Mum and Vic drove to the aquarium store to talk about rehoming a bunch of fish born in Vic's tank.

September 22nd

I drove Mum and Dad to Vacaville so Dad could buy half his body weight in Jelly Belly Jelly Flops.

September 21st

I took the day off, and after pottering around the house all day, went and picked Mum and Dad up from the airport.

September 19th

It threw it down with rain, so we went to the airport and replaced the radio push to talk switch.
