Got to the field at dawn each day and flew six out of the seven days for a total of 8.75hrs.

Finally sorted all the cockpit audio recording issues out with the gopro

Scrubbed one xcountry mission due to fog and then had a xcountry cruise to visit another Europan for coffee and hangar tour... Did not take any cheese along for the journey; just some apples... midday return flight was a bit too warm in the cockpit; need some aircon installed 🤔

Really enjoyed flying with the Clarity Aloft headset in the altered cockpit environment; can hear incoming radio calls so much better than before with the Bose headsets. A whole new experience exiting the cockpit feeling joyful instead of fatigued.

The wife and I flew in our Europa to Lake Havasu, AZ (KHII) for lunch with a couple of friends. The weather was just spectacular which was a welcome change.

This spring as been cold, wet and windy. Certainly, not your typical Las Vegas weather.

The wife snapped this photo as we starting our decent into our home field.

Weather here in FL has been a bit wonky. Nice during the week and then not so good on the weekends when I can fly. I did Area-51 mod of insulating the intake air box with sound deadening material (enjoyed being in project mode) and waiting for weather to improve a little to fly more.

I am getting ready to paint the airplane. I have bought a good spray gun, a forced air respirator system, got the paint and I am rebuilding my wood frame spray booth. I am going to wait until after Sun'n Fun next week, in case the weather is awesome and decide to fly the airplane there, to start disassembly and painting. I plan to take my time to paint and implement a few changes on the airplane.

It’s been a fantastic winter season up here in Canuckstan!  Lots of snow, but every week has essentially been flyable.  I’ve been getting in an average of about 15hrs/mnth of local zenning-out.  Love winter, gooey smooth air, and lotsa white pillow emerge landing spots.
Spring has sprung tho, so expecting lotsa rainy weather soon.

Tuesday we flew to Napoleon, MI, about 60 NM. We took our lunch with us, walked the mile and half to a park in town, ate lunch and returned. Unlike the sunny photos above, our weather was overcast with lots of precip showing on the return trip but none reaching the ground. Nice day and good to get in the air after winter.

Shortest flight yet this morning. Rolled out on 23 after pre-flights and hit rough as guts turbulence straight away until turning xwind at 500'... then spotted a squall approaching at 15nm from the south. Jump plane advised about to drop chutes.... quick decision to re-join circuit downwind and put the bird back on the ground; squall hit the field upon exiting cockpit.

Had a random moment noticing how clear headset audio is now with the Clarity Aloft... Crystal!! So good to have all the audio issues finally sorted 😊

Went up for another hour and made a point of listening to the volume levels in the cockpit at various rpm. The analysis graphs showed volume levels falling off at 5000rpm, so made a conscious effort to listen and indeed they did!! ...

Remarkable!!! 😊

Definitely need A/C; midday and its too damn hot! 😂😂😂
