Road construction is my favorite season.
Indiana has the highest pay for union glazers.

Utah had good seasons. Winter was worth putting up with because ski resorts were so close.

Hey yinz. Hope all is well in 2021.

I’m hoping to get out and play in 3 months. Work and family dominates my time as of now. Kids are growing up, started traveling for work again, and my father in law fell at 77 and broke his wrist. Looks like he’s staying with us for two weeks if he gets surgery. I’ll know more next week on that event.

I hope your pump stroke stays smooth. Cheers yinz

Good to hear from you guys. Sounds like a lot is going on. Injuries at that age are tough. Good thoughts for your dad. And moving to Cali? Big change. Lots of pump action at least.

Private. Getting one is kind of useless, unless you want to go get IR + commercial.

I am working on my IR right now.

i need whatever would give me about a 400Nm range (or larger obviously) and preferably let me have passengers that i can charge for gas and expenses

i think that would be a good starting point

real talk, we have no kids, and we both have very well paying jobs, we are beginning to realize that we are in a position where we can start having some fun with our money as well.

i have a friend who i have know since HS also in a similar situation, and i know it would only take a little bit of badgering to get him to go halves on a plane with me.

need certs and training first, also need to figure out money and time requirements/commitments with local flight schools, wife is onboard with this idea.. might just do it ourselves, wont be able to have as nice of a plane, but neither one of us hates the idea of being to fly to somewhere fun for the weekend on our own

shes also stated that if i do this, she would also like to be able to share flight responsibilities

You can't charge for passenger until you get your Commerical.

You can split the cost of the flight if you rent.

You can't hold out for a passenger either.

You should pay the $200 for the king's school and see if you like what you learn.

1/3 of a PPL is weather,.1/3 flying, 1/3 how to keep from getting your license revoked.

My wife was headhunted a couple weeks ago. About triple her salary, but we'd have to look at moving to either southern California or southern Florida. I said hell no to Cali for assorted reasons, and no to Florida for other reasons. Plus, she's got a lot of security working for a Berkshire Hathaway company.

I toy with the idea of going Light Sport for a license, but if I wind up going with an Ultralight, there's not a ton of point.

Kind of slow around here. Hope everybody's OK.
Well, after 14+ years on Graveyard (mostly) I'm going to Days. I'll be taking a small pay cut, and my commute might get a little rougher, but I will have true weekends off and MUCH less responsibility. I hope this means at least 1 paintball day a month, and I'll be trying to meet up with a pump group that plays the first Sunday every month at KC Crusaders near me.

And for the car guys: I just picked up a MegaSquirt aftermarket fuel injection computer. I will be returning the 914 to FI and selling off the Weber carbs.

Been busting my tail at work, basically zero free time. Add the heavy snow we just got, it's a solid mix of suck.

We've moved so many times (although not in the last 15 years) that we have a standing rule. Nothing said or done during a move can be held against a person once the move is done, and nothing can be taken personally during the move. That probably saved my marriage a time or two.
That is sheer brilliance. Try being the 6'6 300lb guy everyone calls to help move I get roped into helping somebody move at least once a year. It's even worse when it's family and you get volun-told.
