Getting back in the saddle.

Recommended Posts

It's been way too long. I know many builders and flyers understand where I'm coming from.

I haven't done any real work on the project in 6 months until today. The delay was caused in no small part by moving to a new property, picking up additional work, and other things in life taking up my time. Finally, today I spent an hour or so working on the project and completed a step that had been waiting that long. It is so very satisfying! Happily the step went well and only a little blood was drawn by the glass. Pretty good I'd say! There will be plenty more where that came from. Work on the project that is - hopefully not too much more blood, I've spilled plenty of that already. Did I ever post about the time my recip saw blade got stuck and the body started reciprocating instead, crushing my fingertip repeatedly and rapidly against the work? Ow.

And another big step was getting my flight instructor ticket renewed last week, 10 years and 2 days since the last time I flew as an instructor! The flight went pretty well, and I look forward to teaching at the local flying club a few times a week going forward. I enjoy instructing, and of course flying which I have done very little of over the last decade!
