An Update

N62TB still remains in the family, so might as well fly it. SM and I did a little instrument currency flight last night: ILS 23 @ CAK twice, followed by the LOC 25 at AKR. All went well, and it was a lot easier pushing 2TB back into the hangar with the tires properly inflated!

Here's a nifty map of all the places the IFR Pilot has logged a takeoff or landing via light aircraft:

I envy you the time you spent in Alaska, now there is an adventure on a plate.
Congratulations on the 700 hours, the next milestone should come quickly - good luck.

Seems like you have gotten around a lot, looking at all of the pins on your map.

It's a lot of fun to fly around the country to different airports, something I did more of when I was becoming a commercial pilot.

Don't get around quite as much anymore since retirement.

Flying in Alaska would be amazing, so remote and isolated you would really have to be on your game up there.

My name is Sophie and I am currently writing my Masters dissertation about ‘work blogging’. I have found your blog on and want to ask you if you would be willing to participate in my study. It would only take two minutes to fill in my questionnaire under the following link:
No personal details about you or the company you work for are asked for and all the information and data you give will be treated confidentially and will only be used for the purpose of this study.
I would really appreciate your help 
Thank you in advance

what a great hobbie!!! I live in Hawaii near the Dillingham airfield. Almost everyday I go for a swim by the end of the airstrip. The gliders take a sharp turn right over the beach (less than a 100') and then swoop in for a landing. They seem to take an almost vertical dive at the landing strip before leveling. Crazy but looks like so much fun!

Here is a great flight simulator software for all of us who can't afford a plane
