October 21st

I was aiming to attend an FAA Zoom session on operations at Reid-Hillview, but for some reason it wouldn't let me in, so I spent 15 minutes waiting and retrying before giving up entirely :o(

October 20th

I went to the EAA membership meeting via Zoom.  Chris was at Placerville doing his gyroplane talk, but I didn't feel like driving all the way out there just to heckle him.

October 19th

The AC install guys came to install a control wire for the Nest thermostat - I'd asked about it when they were doing the original install, but was told not to worry my pretty little head about it.  So now the Nest can control the fan at both speeds, rather than just the one.

In the evening, I went and showed the space in the hangar to a guy who's going to be building an RV-7 (and possibly a Mini-max too).  He seemed interested, so hopefully that's over and done with for the moment.

October 18th

We had a new heater / AC unit installed.  Tilly was quite interested at first, so I put up her gate to keep her out of the way so she didn't get stepped on, but she soon went to sleep in the sunny spot by the back door.

October 17th

Randy and I went and flew around Beale Air Force base.  Don't worry, we didn't cut through their airspace, the tracker just lost us for part of the journey :o)

In the evening, we all trooped over to Bill's for an "end of the summer barbecue," and just before we set out to drive home, it started (lightly) raining :o)

October 16th

I got to the airport early for the EAA pancake breakfast, then I went for a little flight.

After I got back, I did a little tinkering with the plane, including rotating one of the tyres so it'll wear the _other_ edge.

When I got home, I found that it's the anniversary of joining the Dog Aging Project, so I had a pile of questionnaires to do about the last year with Tilly.

October 12th

We went to Randy's so Vic could try on the Sky Cowboy helmet.  Not an overwhelming success, but maybe we'll see what it's like to fly with it.
