    Post New Home for my Sim

    Some of you know that I just went through a major move and have not been around much. It's been quite a project, more then I have expected.

    I apologize for my absence and thank my fellow site partners and administrators for keeping things going here. Unfortunately there are still things that are keeping me away from mycockpit.org, but, I should gradually start to get back into the swing of things

    Below is a photo of my NEW "Sim-Room." Lot's of work to be done to the structure before my sim will be back in action.

    The room is 24.5' and 24.5' The plan is to have this area dry-walled, independently heat and air conditioned, insulated, new lighting, a raised 8' X 16' room against the back wall, and epoxy the sim room floor. The sim will be totally enclosed and accessible from the 8 X 16 room.

    First think I've got to accomplish is to empty the room Here is a pic of the room as of today.

    Matt:

    Great to see you made it through the move OK. There is a lot of stuff there but not pilled ceiling to floor front to back so just a matter of time.

    Actually fired the sim up this week and did some on-line flying around a bit with some of the Mycockpit builders. Had to stay mostly in the helicopter for crash recovery (Sorry Trevor) A whole lot of fun.

    I need to get back in the books and learn the 777 software. Spending most of my time selling on eBay to stockpile some cash for the project. Looks like this year will be a good year for really being able to but something together and get the parts out of the music studio

    Smile Thank You :)

    Thanks for the kind words from all.

    There IS light at the end of the tunnel It's important for my wife and I to make this look like home as much as possible. So lot's of unpacking and finding a permanent place for everything....

    Regarding boxes to the ceiling.... the other garage is stacked

    I've got an electrician coming next week to do some wiring (not sim related) and have already discussed the power I need in the "Sim-Room." That's a step forward to my project I've also made some preliminary floor plan drawings for the "Sim-Room." Now I got to work the finances..... that always seems to get into the way somehow

    More later....

    I was looking at the date of the last post in this thread.... "WOW" how time flies...

    After all these months of interruptions, I've finally started to get my act together. My project plans, were JUST TO BIG, and was just difficult to get it started. I finally had to back up and decided to take little steps, rather then the BIG GIANT ones that I hoped for.

    The picture in the first post, does not justify my mess, it got WAY worse then the photo. So this past weekend I started, moving the unnecessary stuff out!!!! One step at a time

    Once I have my mess cleaned up and somewhat organized I hope to put in a live streaming video of my project. As some of you (old timers) my recall, I had a live camera through "Pal-talk."

    Just a positive update of my project

    Matt.... I have waited for this day!! I went through the same thing after tearing my pit apart for the move. You just have to step back and look at it realistically... It is just like waiting until you have the money for that 1 part to get going.. Well.... I found don't wait for that, work on something else while you wait. Man live stream yes, Trevor and I are running streams when we are in our cockpits.... Man good to have you in the pit world again!!!!

    I do that too. It keeps the drudge factor down a lot.

    If I can't, or don't feel like working on something I move to something else.
