Another victim

Slowly but surely I am working my way through a list of 'victims' that are willing to ride with me.  This past week my victim was Shelia.  We had a nice flight up to Friday Harbor and back.  I didn't take any pictures but Shelia was nice enough to send me the selfie she took of us.

On an unrelated note you may have noticed that the title of my blog has changed....  All three of you readers are probably wondering why...  Well, let me tell you why.  I'm bored. Thats the truth of it.  I can't keep driving all the way down to Puyallup and back every day just to work on the airplane.  And in truth the amount of work I need to do on the airplane is severely limited.  So......wait for it knew it was coming.....I'm going to start building another airplane!  This time it will be an RV-10.  Amy is enjoying the time we fly together but she wants to be able to bring friends/family on our little outings, and truth be told I like the idea too.  So, since the RV-10 is a 4 seat airplane that flies a little faster than the 9A on a much bigger engine I can't say no to the little devil sitting on my shoulder saying "do it" "DO IT"!

Ok, now that that is off of my chest I will update you on the little work I did with the 9A this past couple of weeks.  Not much but I did get the main gear intersection fairings installed and I'm almost done with the nose gear intersection fairing.  No pictures yet but I will post them as soon as I take one.

One more update before the massive list of photo's.  My IFR lessons are almost done.  I hope to pass my check-ride in the next two weeks.  Look out clouds, you won't stop me as often as you used to!
