Season’s End…Camp Is Over

1 Comment

As you may recall, I compared this to summer camp.  Camp is over.  The Parents are on their way.  I work as a “relief pilot” for our company.  That means every two days I move to a different plane.  With five planes, that means I work 10 days, and off 4…I’ve used the four days off to great advantage this summer.  (Pictures later…maybe…)

The word is we’ll be sent home soon..either way, we’ve had some of our planes sent home, so I’m out of a job.

Lots of folks are talking about how much they’re looking forward to the season’s end.  I’m not.  I’ve not had this much fun in any summer I can recall.

thanks for reading this summer…maybe some things to follow in the winter….

Here are some pictures of the summer…

Having survived the medical world for a few decades, I'm pursuing flight, firefighting, wrench turning, and enjoying my family. I have a passion for "warbirds" specifically the P51 and T-6, the Corsair, and do airshows in those planes. I fly "The Mighty 802" fighting wildfires, and have a great time in my SX and Husky. Oh, yeah, I occasionally show up at the hospital and pass gas.

One thought on “Season’s End…Camp Is Over

  1. Stan, I have really enjoyed reading of your adventures in the West. Hope you get to do it again!
