*yawn* - Tina Marie's Ramblings
Red hair and black leather, my favorite colour scheme...
What a weekend. I flew gliders yesterday, in a lot of wind. It was exciting, to say the least. But now I'm done with training, and all I need it to show up with all my logbooks so the CFI can fill out the checkride form, and I can take the checkride and finally get this rating

Last night, one of the women at the airport turned 50, and wanted a pig roast. The guys at the airport got together, built a spit out of rebar and steel pipe, and hooked it to the wheel of a lawn tractor (to turn it, of course). One of the other guys was in charge of the cooking. Believe it or not, it turned out wonderful - juicy, tender enough to cut with a fork...I was impressed.

Today I was supposed to tow, but a cold front moved through, and the low clouds, winds, and rain kept us grounded. I hung out until noon, then had lunch with the gang, then went back to the soaring club to help Mike wrap his water pipes and bug-bomb Michael's trailer.

Now I'm home with the windows open, enjoying the cool weather...

Current Mood: chipper chipper

I got to fly for the first time in seemingly ages (the weather has been abysmal every time I've been home on a weekend). I was the tow pilot. Sadly, there was no lift, but it did make for a very relaxing afternoon of flying in G-AHAU. She's a lovely old plane - the very relaxed approach speed is only 50 mph. It's nice that *both* brakes are now working, especially as the tailwheel is free castoring! Being tiny little drum brakes, they are about good for one brake application before fading more or less completely

One of the nice thing about Class G airspace up to FL245 is you can dance on the clouds without feeling too guilty :-)
