I was just going to catch everyone up on my dream of flying. I'm just a little closer. This past Saturday, I did my cross-country, solo flight to Liberal, KS. I must admit I sort of put it off because I was afraid I might get lost. But I finally decided one night to plot the route and get on with it. IT WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD! I knew where I was the entire time and could even see family and friends homes. Landed in Liberal (pretty good), got out and checked my winds and did some minimal changes with that, went to the restroom (because you can't just pull over and take care of business) and flew back home. Now I have a solo tri-leg, cross-country and then go through the maneuvers again and then, finally, the flight test. Would love to finish in April. That would be exactly two years from the time I started. We'll see. Cost money, you know. But God has always provided the money for what has been completed so far.
There! I feel better. Maybe you won't think of me as a slacker for a while.
