I know...it's been a while. It's been a busy couple of months! I'm going to try to post a bit more often going forward, especially since I've been doing some fun things. :)
I think they turned out really well, especially considering we'd never made anything like them before!
Unfortunately, we didn't get to spend much more time with Giz. He woke up one morning in a lot of pain and we knew it was time to say goodbye. It really sucked. There are just no other words for it. I still have a hard time thinking about it, and honestly, that's a big part of why it's taken me so long to update this.
Part of what made it suck even worse is that a couple hours after it all, I had to leave to spend a weekend in southern Virginia for a workshop. I had been really excited about going, but it couldn't have worked out to worse timing and I had a tough time being excited about it by the time I left.
...then got to do a sunset flight with yet another buddy in an RV-8. That was definitely one of the best flying days I've had in a while!
I rounded out the month with a short solo flight in the local area. I figured I should take what I could get with the weather!
