Re: Recession incoming

I'm still getting fresh beef. Smoked a rib roast just now, it's resting in parchment, foil and a towel inside a cooler. Going to be delicious!

I can even get the fancy beans I like.

I was not able to buy any silver during the temporary dip. Buggers knew it was going to go right back up.

Re: Community/Residential Air Parks

There were acreage lots at Fort McLeod Alberta for sale backing onto the runway about 17 years ago. You were able to build a hangar and separate residence. Horses were also allowed.

You might still be able to buy one off a current owner. Nice paved runway. A bit windy.

Re: Top Gun 2 - Delayed!!

Ice Man lost his medical, so I'll still go see it but it won't be as good as the first one. Ice Man got pretty fat in his later years. I don’t think he would meet the weight requirements for the ejection seats. :lol: Val is also working through some fairly serious throat issues too. I think he has ...

Re: Looking for advice from the recession veterans

Yes sir, you took both my son and I for a helicopter ride. I was actually angling for rides with the op this time. However if things go back to semi normal I might come up and bother you again. Take care and have a great week.

I bet he did. I made the mistake of going to Superstore looking for some yeast. There was no one in the boxes they painted on the sidewalk to line up in for entry but we waited in a line to check out with our eggs. No yeast there though.

Re: Hey TC maybe this is a good time to extend pilot's medical validity

I would phone your Doc tell them you would like and appointment. Go to work if you can. Get a medical once the Doc phones you and will book an appointment.

Re: Looking for advice from the recession veterans

If you choose option (A), don't forget to log as much night PIC time as you can, especially night X-country. I was going to write something like that. What plane do you have? I might buy fuel and fly around with you. You can log the whole thing as PIC but you have to let me fly a bit. I need some p...

Of course this page has not mentioned that the Calgary Flying Club is closed due to Covid 19 concerns.

You might be able to get flight lessons right now at the other place.

Re: Calgary Flying Club or Calgary Flight Training Centre?

Yikes. I remember a guy training there in the early 1990s excitedly telling me about the great loans the were giving him at an interest rate higher than my Visa. They have changed hands many times since then. I actually like one of the former owners I know as an acquaintance, but alas he doesn't eve...

Re: PPL Studying Help (pilot training.ca)

Just keep studying. It's a massive amount of information but it's all important. It can be daunting but just keep at it. Things worth while are often a lot of work.

You'll look back and have a reason to be proud.

Re: EAA AirVenture Oskosh July 20 - 26 2020

Oops, I should research better. I thought it was done.

Yeah AirVenture is fun but a bit of a trek from here. Maybe if my offspring move out I'll go again.

I have let my EAA membership lapse. Not sure I'll renew for a while.

Re: African Self Fly Safari

African Safari seems like one of those things where you are not going to do that exact thing anywhere else.

There is probably quite a bit of differences between the many countries there also.

Thanks for posting, quite interesting.

Look at this. In the past you could invite people from other countries to go swimming and stuff. No quarantines or anything.

Looks like it.

You mean everyone on here is like me, cranky that a Big Mac costs $5.99?

Silver just dropped like nearly .25 of it's value and it's still an easy to recognize physical asset if the Canadian dollar collapses from people collecting $2000/month instead of working to submit tax dollars. You want to pack ounces of gold to barter with go ahead. "Hello, I'd like to trade this o...
