It’s been drier than a popcorn fart at the movie theater around here.

I figure I’d share a pic from Guatemala I took the other day.

Off in the distance is Fuego, a sometimes active volcano.

Thanksgiving was just last week for us downstream of maple syrup land, so my wife decide we should go for a flight and grill some steaks. God Bless her! I’m not one to make a big deal of holidays cooking.
Of course she’s been kicked to back seat of the Cessna now that the kiddo has laid claim to the right seat:

When do appliances break?
Only when you’re out of town to do anything about it.

Poor wife and kiddo didn’t have any hot water for 2 days until I was able to get home.

(Could have called out a plumber, but saved $900 by doing it myself)

After a very long half day of death by PowerPoint I needed a much deserved massage chair break.


Stopped by the hangar on the way home to get a not as happy ending massage chair treatment.

The chair and pizza oven really set the ambiance in the hangar.

I’m off on a military school for a few weeks. Normally, they pay for an airline ticket. But what fun is that when they will reimburse you up to the commercial travel cost anyway?

So I took the 180 from Wisconsin to Alabama.

I actually really like Foreflight, my companies paying for it so I get all the fancy extras.

I’m a slave to FF and Apple.


I was able to flight plan and file IFR within minutes of me getting to the airport.

Wx brief for layers and airmet for icing.

Plan for cheaper fuel stop, saving $1/gallon.

The company does issue and have a subscription as a back up to Jepp FD. I did pony up and pay the add-on $$$ for Jepp charts on my personal iPad/iphone. (Using them for GA and mil flying is sooooo much better).
