April 15th: Mark's new favorite drink is beer. Or not! He got me some Presidente (a Dominican beer we've read about in a Caribbean sailing book) and wanted to try some to see what the hype was about. I thought it was pretty good, but he wasn't exactly the biggest fan.
April 16th: Aurora at HWY. Jane Wicker is a wing walker based at a nearby airport, and her plane was at Warrenton today. I helped push it back in the hangar to keep it out of the wind.
April 17th: New Airplane Day!! I got all my loan paperwork sent back, so Mark and I drove up to JYO (Leesburg) so I could wrap up all the final paperwork and pick up my new plane. It's still sinking in that I get to keep this one!! :)
April 18th: New socks from Target. I ran a bunch of errands after picking up my plane yesterday and got sucked into Target in the process. At least this time I made it out of there fairly cheaply!
April 19th: Checking my tiedown ropes. It's supposed to storm tonight, so I wanted to make sure my plane was tied down really well.
April 20th: The backside of a Gulfstream III at HWY. I stopped at the airport after work to see how my plane made it through the storms the night before, and this shiny plane was sitting on the ramp! It was so big that even though it's a low wing, I could walk under the wing without ducking.
April 21st: Bacon loses. Mark and I both have the mid this week but she wasn't being very good, so into the pen she goes. Plus Mark was messing with me so I told him his butt was going to be the picture of the day today.
