Default Started moving things to the hangar

Started moving into the hangar. Moved the completed wings and tail feathers. Got some strange looks during the hour long drive with the tail sticking out of the back of the truck.

Flew from San Diego to Concord, Ca with my wife to visit her parents. Was fortunate enough to land at a time close to when Syrus landed N144SD there, so I got to take a look at his airplane too!

Default WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES

Just thinking that a year ago (June 13, 2020) a gallon of 100LL at KXBP Bridgeport, Texas was $2.60 point 9. On July 4, 2021 it was $3.90 point 9. Oh well, I remember itís been worse and may be yet again, but boy that $2.60 sure was a nice sign. I hope the airport manager saved it.


June 13, 2020


July 4, 2021


Keep on flying.

Chris

Flew with granddaughter to Sporty's in Batavia. Put 4.5 on the airplane. Solid blue skies going down and VFR on-top at 8.5 MSL coming back home. We had a blast...

Started removing hoses, wires and left mag so I could get to the fuel pump for replacement. Got pump replaced, however, my new hoses are too long (my fault, not Tom's) so I'm having those modded and hopefully will have everything back together in the next few days.

Learned a lot about the engine in the process.

Did several flyovers for a couple different gatherings. Always fun hanging out with our Smoke On Aviation formation friends.

Default Ocracoke Beach

My wife really wanted to go to the beach so we agreed that if the weather cooperated on Monday we would fly to Ocracoke (W95) for a little beach time. The weather was forecast to be decent but it would take a little time to burn off the morning summer fog/haze (Faze?) We finally got to launch about 0930 and after a fuel stop at Pitt-Greenville NC we jumped over to Ocracoke. We spent a couple hours on the beach and went back home.....only possible in an airplane and especially a Vans!
