We drove to San Francisco (very slowly, the traffic was appalling) so I could go and do some work, and Mum and Dad can finish up their holiday in the city. Work, yay.
In the afternoon we drove down to Los Gatos to have dinner with Vic's family down there.

In the morning I toddled over to Sacramento and took the Sport Pilot written test. It took me longer to ride over there than it took to do the test, but I passed (90%, yay).
We went in to the Galleria (again) to get the security tag taken off Mum's new trousers and to get some coffee.
In the evening, we went to a build it how you like pizza place.

I spent most of the day fiddling with my RFID project, and it's not working the way I want it to. I'd thought about stacked relays, but that doesn't seem to work either. Bummer.
I went out to the airfield and tested the prop pitch - it seems OK. The wind was coming from the North, so it was pretty bumpy, so I packed up and went home.
I watched "Dumb and Dumber To" - meh.

I did some soldering, and went to the airfield to re-pitch the prop on the plane to try and reduce the EGTs a little. When I got there, Richard and Charlie were finishing up tinkering with Charlie's RV. He took it out for a taxi trial, and when he got back I ruined his day by pointing out a bubble in his new tyre. I re-pitched the prop to 0.02", and headed home.
At home, we watched "Gone Girl". Jeez, psychopath much?
