New Old Guy in Alaska

Recommended Posts

Howdy from Peters Creek, Alaska...just about three miles from PABV.  I'm pushing 60, married to my hair dresser and power shopping partner and I'm a personal assistant to one cat.  By day, I'm an Administrative Officer with the FAA and before this whole work-from-home thing started, my office was located at PANC, in the ATCT/TRACON (ANC/A11).  Maybe "was" isn't the right word.  My office is still there...I think...but I haven't seen it since the end of February.  So for all I know, mom and dad may have rented my room out.

My casual sim experience goes back to the mid-1990s but I haven't been all that active for a good while...just a session here and there.  Then along came FS2020 and I got excited again.  I installed it last night—after the slowest download since 14.4 KBps dial up!—but I haven't had a chance to get into for more than a peek with a joystick.  Looking forward to connecting the flight controls and wringing them out.  I can't wait to see my usual sim destinations in the new environment.

I guess that'll do for now.  I have some forum cruising to do.

Hi Brett!

Welcome to AVSIM. Enjoy your stay. There's certainly a LOT of forum cruising to be done thanks to the new release! :biggrin::cool:

Perhaps go and wring out your controls then cruise the forum after you've had another flight - that might narrow down the forum cruise; you may have figured something out whilst enjoying the sim - a win-win situation!🍻

I really should practice more than what I preach and go fly... in FSX:SE (do what you can with what you have)....
