Rocky Mountain High

Wow what a great time. Duane and Mary are the nicest you could be privileged to meet. It’s amazing how the Falco can bring people together across the globe.

Anyway. In the morning after a tasty omelette from Duane we headed out to the airport to gas the plane up. Just as I primed the plane to taxi it, Duane decided to jump in. It was hot at the airport and I think the time he took to get in, boiled the fuel off in the lines. Needless to say, starting was a bit of a fiasco. It normally take about two blade, anyway the good side to that was Duane taught me his method of hot starting at this altitude which worked great. Always nice to learn something new.

After refuelling we took of for a quick look around Boulder. Wow, another really beautiful spot.

The afternoon was again talked away. It was really great sharing experiences and views with our friends.

Dinner time we went into Boulder for a meal and a wind down.

An awesome rest day with some great people before tomorrows flight.

I live in New Zealand with my lovely wife Vicki along with our animals on a block of land in Helensville. Back in 1994 I had this crazy idea to build a plane. Since then its been a huge part of my life. My day job has varied over the years. I started out as a computer engineer and now I'm an airline pilot. You would think that would tire me of flying but airline flying isn't really flying. The small planes are fun and make me remember why I started flying in the first place. This blog is a demonstration of some of the crazy ideas that pop into my head from time to time. The way I see it, life is too short to not give these wild ideas a go. I don't mind if people think I'm crazy. I probably am.
