    Smile Things are slowing down must be.....

    Just keeping up on things this weekend I noticed the pace is slowing down.... obviously majority of our MyCockpit friends are enjoying the weather. Since most of our members live in the Northern Hemisphere

    Besides, it's always good to take a break from being cooped up in the house Of course the folks that live in Florida (I won't mention any names) don't have that problem..... LOL

    Enjoy it while you can

    Out here in the dessicated desert, building season is just ramping up! I love being outside as much as anyone, but when the temps are in the mid-110s (as they will be by the end of this month), um, no.

    Fall, winter, and spring are all beautiful here, but as far as I'm concerned, you can keep the summers!

    In the UK we have had lots of good weather recently, so people must be out in the sun.....

    I in general have given up on this hobby now, i have closed my site down, sold all my gear, im just a general dogs body now posting the odd bit of aviation news as and when I see it!

    I miss it, but i just cant afford anything anymore as i need to pay bills and study (studying travel & tourism now, so hopefully will get an airport job! )

    I still have my Cessna 182 MIP but its in storage for when i am a bit better off!

    Must I add, there hasnt been anything exciting happening in aviation for a long time now!

    I blame it on the recession!

    Florida? FLORIDA?? Mosquitoes the size of a C-150, industrial strength spiders that look like vacationing extras from a 1950s B scifi movie, and the alligators...

    It's folks who live in the California SF bay area (also not mentioning any names) who don't have that problem.

    Matt,

    You know what they say in Seattle?
    Q: What comes after two days of rain?
    A: Monday...

    Even though the weather has been surprisingly nice here, I have been busy writing software for my A320 cockpit. Hoping to have something to show for it soon...
    Thanks,

    Rainy days and Mondays and C-150 Mosquitoes, sounds like a name of a song. Did you know those C-150 Mosquitoes fly in formation?????

    Well summers just appearing here in cyprus, its been a warm mild winter again, and i'll be indoors building all summer. I work in the heat all day so try to stay out of it in my freetime. The aircon will be my best pal for the next 6 months

    Summer is coming here in Norway also. We have had a couple of days with more than 20 celcius. Very nice. Because then I can have my coffe break outside between the struggles with the simulator. And fortunate there are no C-150 mosquitos around where I live. Guess wind blow them over the atlantic to the US, hehe.

    But no simulator vacation here. I like to work on the sim summertime, just because it is so nice to have the coffee breaks outside in the heat. Also I have more energy to work in summertime, so more work get done.

    At the moment working on the pedestal, started on seats and also drawing on a new TQ. So many things to keep me busy

    But will have a break on friday, when me and Phil goes to Tenerife on holiday for a week. No talking about planes for a whole week

    Too true..

    It is a wonderful spring here in AK. 10+ hours of daylight now, and an unseasonably, and record making 70*F.

    Between the Volcanic ash, and the sunny, warm weather, "break-up" has occurred quickly, allowing me to already log plenty of miles on my bicycle, this year.

    Its almost winter here. Nice glass of red wine, warm blankets and no C-150 formations to bother you.
