2022 Spring to summer....

I am not sure what keeps this crazy world tuning but here in the center of the universe life is busy. The planes keep showing up and the projects are even more challenging. One which is worth noting is the rebuild of the front end of a 182, nose wheel and tunnel, seems to be a common issue but we kept at it and got it done but it takes time. Someday I hope to do nothing but but 180ís, something about a simple plane that makes life much simpler. The spring has been long here and unusually wet for Bend but we need the rain and can only anticipate the fires to come. We have had a few really nice soaring days but having my plane in the hanger for some much needed (or which list) items I have been reduced to borrowing a plane or doing some soaring. So with the summer on its way and my schedule filling up not to mention my projects in the wing all is good.....also on a pretty cool note, both Mark (my age) and Max (my son) are signed off on there 8610-2 to take their A+Pís come this fall.....halaluya.........

    Keep the little wheel chasing the big ones!
