It's been a long flyingless winter. I haven't flown for many months. Have not even given it much thought. Drove the 6 hr round trip to go to the reserve clinic to toss a chute and say hi to people I haven't seen in months. Starting to get excited to fly but this year is going to be a slow down for me. Not likely to take in the yearly normal competitions do to family constraints. I plan on doing a little more local flying so it might wash. Sean, the local trainee is going to progress to the point that he should be towing by summer and this will help us both with airtime. I'm going to the Miles In May which I hear is moving for the first time since I started to it's previous proving ground just south of Edmonton. Nice to move to new ground but the distance from home just doubled.
