Soliciting for Sympathy

Recommended Posts

It's been 41 days since I've flown.My company relocated me from Boston to Memphis (again), and my computer is in storage with my rudder pedals, yoke, and other goodies until I sell my house and buy one in TN.Since FS3, I have never gone more than two weeks without at least one flight.Pathetic Activity 1:Out of boredom, I've been picking destinations from AirNav flights and creating flight plans in a spreadsheet and using anticipated fuel burn based on weight, speed, and current weather conditions and comparing the progress to the real-time flights.Pathetic Activity 2:I've also been downloading manuals for products I own, but never RTM.Pathetic Activity 3:I read crash reports on the NTSB web site and try to guess the findings before I read them. I'm 26 for 36. (tracking my totals is pathetic too)Pathetic Activity 4: (waiting for wife to leave room)okay...I watch TV with her and sometimes like it. (ha ha)I'll take slow frame rates, CTD's and lockups any day of the week compared to pathetic alternatives.I miss my sim time.Maybe I'll go take some real flying lessons..... It's got to be ALMOST as fun as a sim.Down but not out,BobKBOS ... ooops .... KMEM

You should totally go out and take some real lessons! I bet flying in Tennessee would be great.An intro flight is like $50 for the hour- trust me the grin will last for weeks!

Flying down there, you have that big river twisting and curving around to look at all the time!In Memphis, there is a suburb called Germantown which is really nice. I don't know where you are planning on moving down there but that is a good spot.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case

Not me!! You mean the original poster needs to drink heavily.Maybe a little bourbon and branchwater would do me some good though I suppose...RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case
