While there's a lot of my life that's fairly routine, today began and ended with things I didn't know I'd be doing just a few days before.
First, I started the day by hanging out with soon-to-be-famous Tim Ferriss (read his blog for more about what he's up to). We got to talk about writing books (his comes out in a few weeks), travel, flying, and so on. I now owe him a ride in the Citabria.
Then I headed up to San Carlos this evening to give an hour long talk on soaring at EAA Chapter 20 (that's the Experimental Aircraft Association). Their previously booked speaker had cancelled at the last minute, so they asked me.
I think it went pretty well. I'll post slides and pictures soon. At least one member has promised me a flight in his RV and I plan to take advantage of that. I was especially impressed by how many of the members had been up for a glider ride in the past. Two of them even have glider ratings.
There appears to be a law of conservation of aircraft rides involved in both events, somehow. You give one, you get one. I'm cool with that.
