I left work early on Thursday and headed up to Truckee. The drive there took about 5 hours, but that's what I get for leaving at 5pm rather than earlier as planned (another story). But it was totally worth it.

On Friday morning, I headed over to Soar Truckee to meet the folks there and get Grob 36L ready to fly. I wandered into the office and met Samantha and Joe as well as a few others. Joe was to fly with me today, so he asked me to read and sign the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).

By the time the day was over, I had one of my all time best flights. Read all about it in my flying blog. Or just look at the pictures I took.

I saw the picture before I read the headline, what I saw was the front left fender of a blue car, with the headlight oddly out of place. Did anyone else see that? I know I'm screwed up, just wondering how much.
