This staycation has gone far better than my last few attempts. What surprises me is how crowded it is everywhere!! There's still no outdoor dining with long lines for food in this little town. I'm right off of the airport in Princeton where the marina is. Thought I'd spock out the HMB yacht club to … Continue reading Great Few Days – Half Moon Bay
Trying to re-group after postponing my instrument training indefinitely. One of the reasons is a very good one that I'm super excited about and can't post. For that I need to be COVID free too, so I can't take any chances. I'll need to be available for a few months. My CFI and I met … Continue reading A Plan!
Went for a eye-opener walk since the restraints have shut down again for take out only indefinitely. Where I live is a suburb of San Francisco that has grown from semi-small town when I first moved here almost 30 years ago to high end shopping. When my kids were school age I'd drive through downtown … Continue reading Downtown Walnut Creek
My POV on this isn't going to override all the social media/news from yesterday, which I purposely stayed off of to binge watch "The Crown." Looks like everyone came out of the woodshed for that display yesterday, just like they did to vote for him 4 years ago. The rest of us saw this coming … Continue reading Crazytown!!
There's a lot worse things happening right now with COVID and the economy. Just hard to hide my disappointment, mostly in myself. Was hoping to come out of 2020 with some kind of accomplishment? That might just be that I can cut & dye my own hair. Besides, THERE'S NO PLACE TO GO!! Put things … Continue reading I’ll Stop Whining
Read my blog from last week where I thought I was all over this and confident, a manic ending to a manic year huh? What a blow. If it weren't for a couple of big blows at the same time I'd go for it still. I probably will at some point, my written doesn't expire … Continue reading Cancelled 🙁
At least there's light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccines, I know 2 first responders who have already gotten their 1st dose. That's promising, it was months before I knew anyone who actually got COVID. Usually I'm by the water somewhere writing out my NY goals, a little reluctant to do that. … Continue reading Happy New Year!!
Ugh Ugh Ugh Today was a stage check for my Instrument training. I was scheduled for Jan. 10th, my mom's birthday week. Lately I spend the week with her for her birthday, this year was going to be no different. Power through the next 10 days and then head down after I "passed." My friend, … Continue reading Throwing in the Towel
If someone would have said this back & forth shut down would last all the way until now I never would have made it. Sounds like this vaccine won't hit the general public for quite a few months, putting me almost last in line. Christmas was good though, despite some zoom glitches. A few days … Continue reading Final Stretch of 2020
It's also hard to explain in writing, my check ride is pending in mid-Jan & I totally bombed yesterday these stupid arc's. It's a matter of turning 2 dials, knowing when to reverse one of them and heading to said reverse course until it's time. Then switching off the GPS to the localizer (which I … Continue reading These IFR Arc’s are HARD!!
