AcroCamp 2011

Greetings from AcroCamp at 57D (Ray Community Airport) in the far northeast suburbs of the Detroit metro area. Jack H. has been posting several observations (and a few photos) on the UCAP Blog. http://uncontrolledairspace.com/blog/ So let me add a few notes. On the one hand, watching a documentary f...

Re: Oshkosh Meetups

Hi, UCAP fans. For those who were at the infamous UCAP party in the rain on Thursday afternoon of Airventure 2011, my pictures are now available for your browsing pleasure. http://jimg.zenfolio.com/UCAP The 21 photos, including the three group photos, are behind a password, which should be easy enou...

Re: Oshkosh Meetups

Earlier in this thread, Jack says that the UCAP meetup will be Thursday at 6pm. I note with interest that on the "OSHPlanner.com" web site, organizers of the Podapalooza (mutli-podcast meetup) (subsequent to Jack's posting) have attempted to stake a claim to the same time slot. Will UCAP c...

Re: Decision time

Hi, all, Here's a post SnF update. So I decided to work on the weight issue (and all that goes with it) for purely non-aviation reasons. Like living longer. Well, I'm sure aviation was in the back of my mind, but that was not the principal reason. My thinking went something like this: Need to lose w...

Re: Sun'nFun 2011 Meetup

Hi, folks, I'm packing today (Sunday) and heading south tomorrow (Monday). Regarding SNF 2011 UCAP meetups, nothing in the recorded podcasts as of yet, nothing on the SNF radio web page about the radio schedule, nothing in the wiki. All quiet on the southern front, as it were. In the absence of othe...

Re: Sun'nFun 2011 Meetup

I'm looking forward to being at SNF from Tuesday afternoon through Friday some time. Looking forward to getting together once again with fellow UCAP fans, and watching the live show in the making. Assuming they don't hide from us!

Re: Decision time

Champguy: I think if I went that route (or should I say "when..."), I would more likely become a LSA renter-pilot and not carry the overhead of ownership.

PropFan: Agreed.

Decision time

As I write this, it's my last day as a licensed private pilot. It's Feb 28. Tomorrow, March 1, it will be more than 24 FAA calendar months since my most recent flight physical. So I've been wondering what now... One option is to try to pass a flight physical exam again. This option conjures up image...

Re: N07 Lincoln Park, NJ--Sunset Pub and Grill

Thanks for posting this. I took the suggestion and flew to the Sunset Pub and Brill at Lincoln Park airport on Sat Feb. 26. Nice lunch, cute airport, great suggestion. The pub is indeed in the airport. This is not obvious from their web site where they only list a street address, and they do not men...

I also plan to be in Camp Scholler. Somewhere. My campsite will be instantly recognizable by the following unique landmark: I'll have a tent.
