  1. My son lives there. He has looked for a flying club to join, but without so much luck. The next time I visit there, I will give you a Flight Review in exchange for a ride in your KitFox.
  2. I would always get my flu vaccine with the rest of my unit when I was on active duty. The nasal vaccine, especially, would hit me quickly, usually within 3 hours. The rest would have the same effect, but usually 10-12 hours later. I would not read too much into these effects, since they may be an artifact from the "inert" ingredients, rather than from the "active" ones. I asked a friend in the health care business about it, and she said, "Nothing is different about the 2nd shot. After the 1st your immune system is taught to recognize the Covid virus and starts to r

  4. I just got my second shot yesterday. The first made my arm sore for a few days, but nothing else. The second was a whole lot worse. Got the shot at 1045. Arm hurt like hell by 1400; naproxyn helped some. Started feeling really crappy at 2230. Went to bed, but had a fever, headache, and the shakes bad. Eventually fell asleep, but woke up with a horrible headache and body aches. Fortunately, I feel better now, except for my arm.
  5. These seem pretty new. https://robinsonheli.com/ https://rotorxaircraft.com/specifications https://www.safarihelicopter.com/buy-a-safari/the-safari-kit-complete-2/
  6. You should be able to get your SEL Instrument rating with no more than an hour or two of instruction before a checkride. The only helicopter vs. fixed-wing instrument flying differences that immediately occur to me are, Torque is no longer one of the "T"s and you no longer get to divide anything by two. BTW, real helicopters have skids.
  7. Note the date on this article. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/covid-19-can-fabric-cloth-masks-stem-coronavirus-spread Here was my favorite line, (emphasis added): In one study, a mask that used 16 layers of handkerchief fabric was able to filter out 63 percent of 300-nanometer-sized particles. (The coronavirus is between 50 to 200 nanometers in diameter.) But that mask was harder to breathe with compared with thick, tight-fitting N95 respirators, often used in hospitals, that can block minuscule particles. Wearing a cloth mask with that many layers would be uncomfortable and ma
  8. How far away are the targets? The biggest difference in effectiveness between these is the caliber, anyway.
  9. Freezing rain is bad news, but have you ever seen anything made in Russia that is reliable? Soyuz rockets have 25 engines for redundancy. I have seen video of launches where you can see at least 3-4 not functioning.
  10. CFI-I, J-model time, Lincoln Nebraska. Funny, when I bought my Mooney, my insurance only required I be "signed off" by an instructor; it took about 0.5, or three times around the pattern.
  11. Do you realize that after a well field is depleted, it often still has 85-95% of the crude remaining. Enhanced recovery techniques can improve the extraction a great deal to almost 50%. Thus, even previously depleted fields might produce more oil now or in the future.
