    I don't see a forum specifically for new user introductions, so will post here.

    I started Civil air patrol about 4 decades ago, and got distracted by girls and flying took a back seat. Two months ago I injured my knee doing wheelies on a dirt bike and found myself with ample amounts of youtube time during the pre and post surgery. I stumbled across flying videos which rekindled my interest and that is how I landed here.

    Located in Atlanta and considering going for PPL but waiting on my knee to fully heal before I can begin training.

    I trust you read all of the surgeon general and consumer protection warnings related to this site before joining.

    Welcome, regardless.

    That is part of the inspiration for the name. In the past, and to a certain extent now, I do a variety of security work, much of it info-security. An IT geek, of sorts. So I combined packet (network traffic is sent in packets) with inspector and boom there ya go.

    I do have lots of gadgets, so that applies as well
