Flight Experience

Mike+plane The first weekend in a long time where we had both Saturday and Sunday off and weren't away on vacation. Nice to be able to sleep in on both days.

On Saturday we had an errand and cleaning day. Started to get everything ready for a visit of a friend who will be here on Wednesday, staying until Monday the week after. He will be staying with us for most of the time while he is here so we needed to declutter and clean up some things.

Then Sunday we drove up to Hartford for a flight experience. This was Mike's Christmas gift from last year and we finally got around to scheduling it. Here is the link if you are interested in checking it out. Luckily the weather cleared up by the time our flight time rolled around. Did the whole pre-flight check with the instructor and then had about 30 min. in the air. Mike was behind the controls the whole time. On the first take off the instructor was still a little more cautious but after he realized Mike kind of knew what he was doing he let him land and take off by himself 2 more times. He has over 200 hours of flight experience, it just goes back to about 15 years ago. But I guess it's kind of like riding a bike, it comes back to you. For me this was my frst flight in a small plane. Not quite sure but I guess I could get used to it. :) And after the flight we drove over to downtown Hartford and had lunch at the CitySteam brewery there. Fun place to hang out for a while.

Short mail update for today. Received letters from: Sayaka/Japan and Celia/MA.
