    Hi all,

    Another New Guy checking in. Came across the forum the other week. What a great site. Thanks to all the contributors here.

    Recently started pursuing my PPL here in the Little Rock area. Have 12.5 hours TT. Solo'd two Saturday's ago at 8 hours TT. I'll note that I have a bit of (unlogged) time from when I was a young teenager, over 20 years ago, so have a bit of a foundation. Aviation has been a passion of mine for as long as long as I can remember.

    Looking forward to being part of the forum and contributing.

    Thanks,

    Josh

    Welcome to the joint @Rosco P. I see you know how to edit. Edits right after an @mscard88 post are frowned on around here

    Ha! I think I'll like it here. My wings seems a bit wobbly on climb out, but don't worry, I'll fly straight and level.

    On high wings or low wings? That's a debate around here.

    No one here flies straight and level. If those are your intentions, you can just leave right now.

    I hear ya. There's great fly fishing and a good cost of living here, so I'm happy thus far. Oh yeah, and I don't have to deal with protestors who can't even remember what their protesting on a daily basis.

    Just actually noticed your user name....Roscoe P.... Coltrane I assume? Like skydog said there is already a cooter on here so you should feel right at home. We have Deputy Enos Strait here as well, but he goes by the name of @eman1200 (which I also just realized the significance of the 1200 in his user name, I really gotta start paying better attention to detail).
