Default flying meeting

well, yesterday i had a meeting in chicago, 1 to 3. a 5.5 hour drive or a 4 or so hour commercial flight. I chose the drive as i do not like the boxed in feeling that commercial flight gives me, have to be here at this time and that time, no matter what happens!

tuesday is beers and dinner with vtail nic, he insisted on flying me, I graciously accepted. Flight was CAFB, clear as a f'n bell.

first flight i have gone with him on in quite a while where we did not have to file IFR, one side or the other. hour 40 there, hour 20 back.

I took off and flew there and back, left the landings to him, fun and relaxing stuff, but, too bad he has no auto pilot, PIA to hold +- 20 feet by hand for 3 hours. when you fly with nick, you hold +- 20, when he flys it his instruments appear broke, they DO NOT MOVE
