All 80s Labor Day Weekend

Star 101.3, one of the local Clear Channel cookie cutter suck ass stations is playing all 80s music this weekend, emphasizing one-hit wonders.

I love 80s weekends. The older I get the more I think that 80-90% of all the good music was created in the 80s. I suppose it's the same way for any generation.

Anyway, this should be a good weekend as far as the music department is concerned. Come Tuesday, I'll go back to listening to either KQED Radio or my iPod. In the meantime I'll be enjoying my favorite hits.

I fail to understand why there's not an all 80s station in the Bay Area.

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.
