December 17th

I went and bought a tool cart that's on sale at Harbor Freight, then went over to the airport to build it.  I'd pretty much just taken it out of the box when Danny showed up, and we chatted for a while, then went out in his Eurofox.  I did pretty much all of the flying, and it's a lot different from the Flightstar, not least for being about twice as fast - we were over by Cameron Park and Danny suggested we could go and land at Placerville - I said it was going to be dark in about 45 minutes, so I didn't think we had time.  We were back at Lincoln for a hard, but not quite bone crushing landing about 15 minutes later.  Danny reckons he burns about 4 gallons an hour at 120mph, so that's more economical than most cars :o)  We put the plane away, and he dropped me back at my hangar to finish building my tool cart.  I've even started loading it up with stuff that I don't want draped all over the floor any more :o)
