Still Kicking

The IFR Pilot and 2TB are alive and well. Only 34.3 hours of flying in 2010, and if the current weather patterns in Northeast Ohio hold true, there may not be any more flying this year. Hard to justify the economics of sole-aircraft ownership for that few number of hours. Early resolution for 2011: Find someone to link up with, or consider "scaling back" to something that flies behind an IO-360.

Meanwhile, The Dad came through with an early Christmas present: A Spot Satellite Messenger with GPS. Look for implementation of that on this website soon! Wish we had one of those when we made the Alaska trip in '05.

Oh, and with the most recent flight, the logbook hit 700.0 total hours!!!

Delighted to see an entry here. Hope that the weather patterns are less bleak than the forecast and you can get a few more hours in ... write whenever you want to, someone here or there is always in "receive" mode

Cruise by Alex Stofa
When retired airline pilot Mac Knight and counselor Lynn Baker plan their three month summer cruise to the Bahamas, Both Lynn's and Mac's past bring a new dimension into their plans and into their cruise.
Their passion keeps their romance together.
But is their passion enough as Mac succumbs to keeping his past alive and as Lynn tries to avoid the advances of her past love?
