  1. In the interested of accuracy are you tempted to log more than one landing per flight?
  2. The above mentioned Switzerland Inn (Gary Jensen) hosts several motorcycle club get togethers every summer.
  3. I suspect that most of us occasionally do more to rough up the gear touching down hard than is done rolling out on a less-than-smooth runway.
  4. <chuckle> But I do have a stocked wine cooler there.
  5. Sophia is 82. I do not suppose this pic is very old.
  6. Please read more carefully. I referred to a O2 pulse meter. Oxygen and pulse. No one cares much about pulse rate but the meter displays both. My BP cuffs also record pulse rate but that's not what I use them for. Geez.
  7. I use a finger O2 pulse meter regularly. I generally do not go to the O2 tank unless the flight is a couple of hours or more and above about 8000'. (If I flew at night I would start O2 before takeoff.) Even when not using the O2 tank I find that proper breathing can raise O2 from 90-92 to 95+. "Proper" I'd define as intentionally breathing deeper, not faster, using more of the lungs. The key is to then keep breathing right.
  8. Twin Lakes Avionics in Mocksville NC, Sparkchasers in Smithfield NC.
  9. You might want try a better headset. I replaced a DC PRO-X with the new ONE-X at KOSH last year. Really quiet even with sunglasses and O2 cannula. (I'm 74 and my hearing is getting weaker every year but the easiest listening I do is inside the ANR headset.) https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2016/july/11/the-quiet-comfortable-one
  10. Jolie, I'm glad you shared that story with the broader flying community. Nice.
  11. Sideways or right side up that's a sweet looking cowl for our vintage Mooneys. David may have to quit his day job to meet demand.
  12. I like my '66 E's cowl design better than the 2 piece J cowl. The cheeks panels come off after every trip of any length. I look around with the mind set that there's something amiss and I need to inspect until I find it.
  13. Green-eyed monster.
  14. Geez, what's your beef now? I conceded my place in the line... BTW, N943RW already has Sabremech's signature in her log book. Just saying, not name-dropping.
  15. Marauder, my bad, you're right. That draggy F needs help more than my poor old E and you have my blessing to be the next guinea pig. (BTW, in the future I will communicate with David via PM so that you won't worry about what deals we are making.)
