Approach to mins

It's been hard to get any IMC this year... it's been sunny and beautiful for months.  We've really only had one system come through.  It's not looking so good for the ski season or my lawn...  I did get an approach to minimums this weekend though on a mission to fetch a golden retriever from Arcata.  You can always count on ACV for IMC!

Ringing in 2014

I started out 2014 by putting 3.8 on the tach.  2013 ended at 118.6 hours so my resolution is to beat that this year.

The obligatory New Years Day selfie

Beautiful sunset tonight, and hardly a bump the whole flight.  Also I'm still pestered by that wonky left fuel gauge, so I took Kevin Walker's advice and bought myself a few extra Christmas presents.  I got the Aerospacelogic STC'd replacement digital fuel gauge, and for good measure I went ahead and ordered the Ammeter gauge too.  Why spend $600 to overhaul one circuit board when I can spend that and replace both with a more modern solid state unit?  Will be interesting to see how long it takes to install though!
