    Lower your MTOW

    Fresh meat and Vegetables work well, funny that when there was less take away options on every corner and people ate at home we all seemed slimmer and more active. I’m only a seventies vintage and I do not recall seeing so many large people as now (including in the mirror)

    Our local storage dam had the wall raised a few years ago by 2 metres. It took away the road on the far side, increased the storage by 50%. But they did not think to dig out the millions of tonnes of silt from the shallow end whilst the dam was close to empty for 4 or 5 years. It appeared to be several metres deep even in the river entry end (judging by the original landscape shape). The increase in depth would have to be a gain better than surface area.

    Lower your MTOW

    I found the Man Challenge works in changing your mind set on food and works for a small input of exercise with no machinery/equipment. i have only gained weight back due to laziness (not spending 1/2 hr walking and 10 mins exercising each day) which I i now have to work harder at.

    Tell us about your last flight

    Why is no-one ever around to see that perfect landing. Had a short local flight over the local recreation dam this arvo, which finished with a straight in greaser. Made the hour or so to get out of the hanger worthwhile.
  7. They are usually Impressed with early morning, no bump flights to the coast, not the roller coaster ride coming home too late in the day over the range. ( my experience has found this out, very green coloured passengers upon return journeys)
  8. Diamonds :))))))))))))))))))))))) For the wife that is And for the value of the experience along the way.

    Looks like perfect weather there at the moment. We are enjoying some rain and storms lately. Just wish they would come after beeer o’clock and give us some flying weather.

    Guess This Aircraft ?

    I took a pic of this aircraft at Coffs Harbour with rego METAL, looked it up and found it to be morrocan rego. Quite sleek up close, my son loved it as one of his computer games has it as an option to fly.

    AirVenture car parking

    They announced today the fees were for lions club and local men’s shed. Excellent traffic management to get out after show.

    AirVenture car parking

    We pay that much each day we park at our local airport every day of the week. Is the money going to a cause or just council coffers. Donated to a good cause like drought aid or lions clubs etc is not a bad thing. Maybe the strawberry farmers to make up for the damage done by a small bunch of losers.
