Art Imitates Life

Remember January 9th, 2015?  Sure you do, that was Day 520, when we were camped out with our RV and PPG at the fabulous Trona Pinnacles:

I didn’t get to fly that weekend because of rain, but thankfully Dodge has put together a dramatization of what it would have been like:

An old friend recently e-mailed “the way you’ve turned your lives into art — in the best sense– is truly remarkable.”  I’m not sure that this is what he had in mind.

Flying Long Island

I drove out to Long Island to go flying with some local plots:

I would have flown for much longer but there was a good bit of turbulence, probably due to wind shear.  Local pilots tell me it dies down towards sunset.  If I ever decide to drive all the way out there again, I’ll come later in the day.
