    Critical to do the hunting part before the bourbon part, for a number of reasons. One being you don't want to end up with an 800 lb deer with an ear tag by accident...

    Which part of upstate?

    Small world! I'm just back from visiting family friends in the Lowville area this weekend. Warmer weather than they've had in early November in a long time, and other than some rain last night and early tomorrow it was great weather. Took a ride to Watertown to scope it out for flying out there next visit rather than driving. Seems like a nice little airport.

    Took my oldest up tonight and refreshed my night currency. First night time I've gotten since the last time I did it 2 1/2 months ago. She enjoyed it, but I still don't like flying at night. Gets hard to avoid in these short winter days though.

    My best friend lives in Watertown but his hunting camp is near Barnes Corners. I usually fly into Watertown commercially but American has cut it down to one flight per day instead of two so now I fly into Syracuse. We take our deer to Lowville (pronounced lau instead of low which I was quickly corrected) for processing. It is a small world indeed. Someday I’m going to fly cross country into Watertown but in late summer for some walleye fishing on Lake Ontario.

    I almost pulled the chute today. I was flying over Oklahoma in the 310 and some approach controller called me a Cirrus. I didn't know what to do but couldn't find any red handles other than the mixture levers, so I had to just keep flying.

    Should have asked ATC if you should declare an emergency as the Cirrus’s built in cup holder and cappuccino maker failed.

    How many accidents has that one caused? Poor maintenance, fuel exhaustion...

    Who knew that a normally aspirated Continental engine could pull you up to 94,500’.

    This was my pirep last month, coming back from an oil change in Wisconsin, when I apparently climbed all the way through Class A and then some.

    I’m sure other pilots were glad to learn that there’s no turbulence up there.

    I think at that point you and the ISS revert to “E”. :)

    This METAR might be worthy of its own thread. Maybe I should rethink my plans today.

    Right down the runway. Easy take off, and great ground speed if you want to go west.

    Luckily they fixed it. Still down the runway. Just the other runway.

    If you're drunk enough to use a bottle opener on the bottom of your shoe, you're probably drunk enough you don't care...

    ah. Thank you.

    I don't drink*, so it wasn't obvious to me.

    *no problem with people drinking, I just never acquired the taste for beer, wine, or booze (or coffee or tea)

    Conversely, if you're sober enough to be able to use a bottle opener on the bottom of your shoe, you probably don't want to.

    If those are flip flops...and they kinda look like it...it seems like someone sort of brought a Jimmy Buffet tune to life. I'd be careful, could result in injury.

    3 or 4 mile backup on southbound M-39 (6 lane freeway) because of an accident on the NORTHBOUND SERVICE DRIVE.

    Many years ago on the inner loop 610 around Houston, traffic in front of me suddenly filled with brake lights as everyone jammed on the brakes. A lot of the folks started diving off the loop across the grass and down onto the service road to avoid the wreck. Since I was driving a truck load of methanol, I could not follow.

    Good thing because the wreck was on the service road....:lol:

    Since the ISS is above 10,000 feet, the visibility and cloud clearances for VFR are the same.
