March 20th

Randy picked me up and we went to the airport.  It was pretty busy there, as it was the display day, but we headed over to Colusa for their Spring fly-in - we were too low to show up on ADS-B out in the boonies.

It was interesting, as they were using 13 when we approached, Randy landed on 13, then some guy without a radio landed on 31, then I made a slow approach so I could get him off the runway and land on 13, then Ray in his RV-6A landed after me on 13.  Oh well, all's well that ends well.

After lunch and walking around a bit, we flew back.  I had to fly around one of the fire helicopters tootling along the Feather River :o)  When we landed, we found out that Bill had won the nicest aircraft prize, so his $50 hamburger turned out to be free.  One of my brakes is squeaking again, so we pulled that apart and found that the tyre was starting to bulge - replaced that, and put everything back together, then I replaced the front tyre as it's starting to look a bit low, and they last forever anyway.

At home I pulled the van out and cleaned everything up so I can see any new leaks.  It all looked OK when I put it away, so we'll see how it holds up.
