Thanksgiving plans

November 26, 2008

Nothing to do with flying or why I want a plane but I figured I had to post something to keep people interested.
For those of you not from USA. Thanksgiving is a Holiday were us overweight Americans gorge our self’s on Turkey and other foods. Then sit around talking about how we eat way too much.
Since our kids are grown and have their own families my wife and I have going away for the 4 day weekend. For the last few years we have been going to Laughlin Nevada. For those that do not now Laughlin is a smaller version of Las Vegas. It is also a much older crowd. Vegas if for young people Laughlin is for us older one.
We fly out (see a little about flying) on Thanksgiving day (cheaper flight) and return Sunday staying at the Riverside. This year we are going to The Gourmet Room at the Riverside for Thanksgiving dinner. This is the first time we will be going to the Gourmet Room. It seems to have good reviews on line.
Since I will be in a gambling town maybe I will be changing this page from I want a plane to I bought a plane. Very sure this won’t happen because I am not a big gambler. Hard to win big when you are betting small.

The comment was on my one political post. Maybe I sould switch to political posting. Thanks Joe for you comment. You can view his page here

I did get to go flying the other day/night. I went up before night and just flew around. I did a few steep turns and turns around a point. Then I went back to the airport for landings. Did a few night landings. Total time of flight .8 so not much time

Not flying

October 15, 2008

I have not been flying again since Madalin Island. I figured I needed to update the site just to give people some thing to read. Not much new happening still working. Been raining off and on all week. Not good flying weather! Been working on getting my old truck running. Figure if I fix that I can sell it and use that money to help buy my plane.

Day Five

September 30, 2008

Up to 21 hits and $0.  I added a link to place I have landed. I was hoping to add a landing spot this weekend. Weather was not right so no flying this weekend.

Hopfully the weather will be better this weekend.
