Normally I work weekends relaxed schedule and better pay. Boss said I have too much OT take a day off and go fly

This is not New Jersey it takes full tanks to patrol the territory. Talked to a fellow RVator in the air thanks for pirep Mike. The Horseshoe Canyon wasn't bumpy.



Desolation Canyon was smooth as well. Hundreds of rafters.



Martian folks went to Earth for the weekend.



Hite was a bit turbulent that's why it says Hazardous on the sectional.






Flew Forrest Gump approach to a grocery store in an Indian Reservation. The produce was fresh and mutton reasonably priced at Goulding Trading Post.



Dodged some T-storms on the way home.

Scottski man where time goes... Seems like yesterday I was following your excellent built log for 22C. It saved me many many days during my RV building...

Good times for sure. Time marches on. There are over a decade of RV builders among us that know not of what you speak .

Hopefully soon to be uncovered and moved to shop center! (OSH resets my brain each year.)

Worked on empennage attachment. Got as far as the elevators (cursing the installation of the elevator horn washers) and on the drive home remembered that I hadn't rerouted the manual trim cable yet. Sigh... I'm not undoing all that final torquing and sealing. Gonna have to crawl into the aft fuselage again. Took a mental health break Sunday.

Same here. Let's hope the loop road gets some permanent pavement.

Baby turned 1000, so an oil change too.

Did some smoke surfing to get back home from Osh. Had to take a southern route into Iowa and Nebraska to avoid IFR visibility.

Default Osh Gosh

Returned to the hangar after being "enlightened" by all the Osh forums. Made a rework plan on the drive home to reroute my comm antenna wires away from the canbus per Garmin forum. Looked at the task in the plane; naw not going to happen, the way it is will be fine; trust me. Paraphrasing John Steinbeck: "some of the best laid plans of mice and mechanics, often go astray when reality hits". Ok, I made up that last part.

Spent the rest of the time laying in the pitot, static and AoA tubing. At Osh, I had the Garmin rep review my G3X schematics. Took about 30 min after hours and the verdict was they saw nothing wrong with my schematic. I am good to go. Plan to buck the sub panel rivets this week; and it aint coming out after that.

After looking at Vlad's picture above, I am reminded of another quote," There comes a time in every project to shot the engineers and start production."

Default More Flight test; Bar Harbor, Maine

Went up Saturday for more "Possible Turn" testing and practiced landing at lower speeds.
The lower speeds are really helping my Short Field landing technique.

Finally a sunny day so Rosanne and I flew up to Bar Harbor Main to try out
a lobster roll at Lunt's Lobster Shack a short walk from the airport. Great day
though a bit hazy. Quick one hour flight up and slightly over an hour back. 185 miles.
The coastline of Maine is fascinating...endless islands of all shapes and sizes.
A mariner could easily - very easily - get lost in a fog.

I also learned that having ADS-B In is sort of a mixed blessing. Yes you see the
airplanes around you and can watch what they are doing, and on a hazy day like
this it's hard to see them with the eye; but it's clear some of them are totally
unaware of you and do the strangest things when near you....
