Spent more time flying last week than doing anything else, it was fun to go up just on a whim, also felt like I was pushing my luck a little on the flying side of things. I'm in a partnership plane, last week I was a passenger taking pictures with 2 of the partners and … Continue reading California Week
After working so hard at it, my back said FU again 🙁 Nothing like being super healthy otherwise and unable to move. It didn't hit that hard yet, trying to prevent that by having a heat/ice day fueled with Aleve back pain (giving me a false sense of reality, but I wanted to sleep last … Continue reading Dang!
The cure for daylight savings time, where it's dark at 4p in California. Plus a pre-holiday chaos unwind to gear up for a full December. Found some good rates for O'ahu's off season so jumped on a plane last minute. Besides, my travel blogs get more likes than any personal stuff I ever write...haha. It's … Continue reading Aloha!!
It's embarrassing that all my pics are scattered on different computers and iPhones, disks, etc with absolutely no organization whatsoever. When the kids were little and film was still king the second the prints were developed I'd throw them into an album then send copies to grandparents. With the house being under construction, I found … Continue reading Organizing Photos (for the 1st time)
The final day in Bend was spent leisurely going downtown for one last time, grabbing lunch/latte before heading out to Fly & Field Outfitters store for an afternoon sesh. The forecast for flying back was good, on Thursday there were still quite a few ominous clouds I was a little worried about. My mind in … Continue reading Fly fishing & the flight home
Honestly, there was a point where I was ready to just hop in the car and drive the 8 hours thinking it wasn't going to happen! I gave myself plenty of time to do that, the hotel was pre-paid, there's always a Plan B. Plenty of sleep the night before, had breakfast then threw some … Continue reading The flight – Bay Area to Bend, Oregon
This will be the first time flying up there solo, see how it goes?? The other day I went to practice touch & goes in the club plane - something I really haven't done for awhile. Last month we flew to Torrance where the clouds broke up right at the runway and I was able … Continue reading Getting ready for Bend
Actually, it was just me driving my mom & brother to the airport. I flew down to Torrance yesterday in the Archer with my partners in the plane for a quick refresher on LA airspace. It was so convenient!! We leisurely took off at 10a with a few bumps right around the airport, then I … Continue reading Morning @ LAX
This past week has just been getting used to being home again, I feel like I've been gone all 2019. That's not a bad thing, it's just my life here consists of doing laundry and packing. With the kids finally launched, next on the menu is new floors. That is my mission for the day, … Continue reading Re-group
Got a day of motoring about to Jack London Square in, no winds. It's been months since I've been able to take out the boat due to rain or just plain old too cold, otherwise we're back to rain here in NorCal. I'm going to go for it and just drive up to Seattle, I'll … Continue reading Risk taking
