ROLL CALL!!! Time to come out of LURK MODE!

Recommended Posts

From the sound of the thread below, it must be time for EVERYONE to check in and be counted. Let's hear from you all, and please let us know what you're up to these days. I think everyone knows what is going on with me, the plane, and my travels -- so now is your chance for 15 minutes of fame (not flame)!Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN

I am lucky to be able to answer present. We have been getting 4 hours of electrical power a day over the last week. Does anyone know of a pedal-powered computer for sale?Best regards.Luis

Most of the week (for the next few weeks), I'm working out of town also. But then sunshine & palm trees beat the dreary rain, snow, & winter shades of gray in SLC. :)L.Adamson -- KSLC

Here!Had to fly to Austin on Thursday for a Partner's meeting. Which was held over a fabulous dinner at Ray's on Guadaloupe almost in the shadow of the Texas Capital bldg. Was slightly sleep deprived as I worked until 0400 and jetted from Midland at noon. Came back home Friday and worked till 0700 Saturday.Today I shall work in my shop on some 1940's vintage locomotive air horns. I have one sold to a fellow in New Zealand who is a photographer for the Discovery TV channel and three sold to a fellow in California who wants to make his neighbors very appreciative of him in a negative sort of way.And Brother Maynard shall act out behaviours that absolutely define the word "lurk."That is what is on the adgenda here at Casa Doc.Doc Bryant

Well, I did take a little hop with a friend yesterday with the intent of taking a look at one of our local rivers...the Chickasawhay.My friend is not as adventurous as I and we didn't get low enough, in my opinion, to get that good look. These images were taken off video tape. So, apologies for the quality.Off the departure end of GPT's RNWY 18 looking West toward Gulfport and East toward Biloxi...http://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/Pa...laRiverFlt1.jpg http://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/Pa...laRiverFlt2.jpgMississippi clouds...http://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/Pa...laRiverFlt4.jpgThe River a few miles South of Waynesboro from a nose bleeding 3,000'.

Hi there, Gents :-waveWell, let's see........ what have I been doing? Been trying to pry a regular paycheck from the doctor I transcribe for (yes, Jerry I know I'm not supposed to end a sentence with "for" but TOUGH! LOL). Also spent a few hours with my ex-hubby getting him ready to move to Nevada. Doing income-producing typing; playing in my flight sim practicing my helo hovering. :-rotor Take care, guys. -Lindy :-hah

That panel looks just like the Sporty's poster on my wall at home. Was that a 172 or 182?Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN

Jerry, it is a '98 172R. Has a little over 3,000TT and 1,000 SMOH. It had been owned by a East Texas college that has a flight school. They were upgrading their inventory with new and had 5 of these with essentially the same times and equipment to sell.That metal panel looks much better without that vac-u-formed plastic insert Cessna once used, doesn't it? http://myweb.cableone.net/joesumralliii/hook5.gif

>That metal panel looks much better without that vac-u-formed>plastic insert Cessna once used, doesn't it? >That is a very good description - especially when you see one that's a little loose.I still have one of those (Vac-u-Form), with plenty of plastic sheets left - even the metallic ones! Made lots of secret agent ID's with it. When the grandkids get a little older I'll show it to 'em.Still trying to get into final gear to complete the PPL.BTW, does anyone use Netscape 7.1, and are unable to login ? IE 6.0works fine, but Netscape won't let me login.Cheers,Dave H.Fayetteville, GA

I still check in here from time to time too.I've spent the last year mainly with X-Plane, and I'm now working with Getmapping and Intermap Technologies creating a brand new photographic scenery of England & Wales for X-Plane. It uses 4.8m per pixel aerial photographs and covers over 150,000 square miles in total.The first volume is due out before Christmas, so if any of you are interested in X-Plane and true photographic scenery, the likes of which barely graces MSFS, then check out my website (shameless advertisement!)_______RegardsChris Ehttp://www.circle-software.co.uk/php/html/images/logo.gifVisit http://www.circle-software.co.ukHome of X-Plane Photographic Scenery : England & Wales

Calvin,Your name and location are not familiar to some of us "old hands" around here. Tell us a bit about yourself and of any experience you have with ProPilot 99, etc. Or did you just stop by to get the feel of this "place" on Avsim?Jerry K. ThorneEast Ridge, TN
