My CFI rocks!
It is an amazing feeling having Minnesota’s 2013 CFI of the year as my instructor. I can see why he was awarded that honor!
Farewell and Godspeed
One extra star shining tonight in heaven. On to your next adventure Mr. Nelson Mandela, and thank you from human kind
Today is a very difficult day. Today as I cuddled you in my arms, all swaddled in your warm blanket, I tried to not think about tomorrow. Today as I watch you walk around in pain, I tried not to cry. Today as I brought you to the vet, I tried not to feel awful about what is to come. Today as I said goodbye one final time, I felt my heart shatter as I know you won’t be coming home tonight.
Today, ….. Today was a difficult day
To my guinea pig, Pancakes, have a pain free time on your next adventure (Jan 2008 - Dec 2013)
Dreams Littered with Road Blocks - Soar through the Skies
Since I started flying I have been asked multiple times when I was going to Solo, or if I have Solo-ed. It has been hard to explain why I am doing things unconventionally and usually met with confusion ( I have to wait for the FAA to review some medical items that is keeping me from being unable to solo right now).
Here’s how I see it - I will have my Cross-Country, Night Cross-Country, Night Flying and multitudes of other milestones done and under my belt before I would ever be allowed to Solo and do a simple traffic pattern by my lonesome in the plane. But, when I do get to Solo, it would be 2nd nature to me and the experience would mean so much more to me.
Here’s to chasing that dream that is littered with road blocks. Here’s to crushing those obstacles and soar through the skies
