Because I fell sick half way through, the end of the 4 day weekend wasn't as productive as a result. Yet, while I had to cancel my flight to Sunday to Harris Ranch sunday, I flew every other day, including some more complex practise in a 172RG (plane with retractible gear) on thursday, and more practise in a 235HP Cessna 182 G1000 which can comfortably sit 4 people while having about 4H of fuel.
Thursday afternoon, after my first flight, I spent the thanksgiving lunch, afternoon and dinner at JBQ and Eugenia's who were nice enough to invite us.
Friday, I got really close to getting a C182 and high perf checkout, but didn't quite make it due to lack of time from the instructor. I'll have to finish next week.
Then, I went to meet Jennifer at Starbucks/Jamba Juice and had quite a nice and refreshing chat. More to come...
By saturday, after my morning flight, where I got fairly close to getting my C182 and high perf rating, I started getting rather sick with a cold.
Sunday, incidently, I got to spend a fair amount of time in my new bed, and cancelled my flight to Harris Ranch, I just wasn't up to it.
