Today I gave Andrei his long-promised glider ride. We met down at Hollister this morning and before too long were on tow in BASA's DG-1000.

I hadn't flowin the DG-1000 in at least a month, and hadn't flown it from the back seat in even longer. But you know what? It didn't matter in the slightest. I was very comfortable and even managed to land as well as a typical front seat landing.

I really need to get over myself sometimes. Even though I have over 320 flights (mental note: update log book), I always think I could use a bit more practice.

That's healty, of course. But there are times when I need to realize that I'm being dumb.
