Bio: 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.

I’m thinking we grew up with a “different” set of parents!! Thank you for leading the way.

I’ve been enjoying your entertaining blog. I’m a former Pitts S1-S and RV-4 and 6 pilot, grounded for medication reasons. Had a three level lumbar fusion 10 months ago, so there is some hope of getting off the painkillers someday.
I can’t help but wonder if you noticed the spelling of your primary occupation at the bottom of the AVweb page that holds some of your blog entries. It is so far off it’s funny!

Ya, well, I don’t get to “edit” after they “edit”! Hope you get off the meds, and get back to flying!

Ive only read a few so far but am loving your blog. Im a younger commercial pilot trying to work my way into the aerial firefighting world and especially SEATs. Would love any tips/advice you could offer! Fly Safe

No firefighting this year? Been hoping for an update, but don’t see any.
I’m no closer to flying. I got stupid on one of my hot rod motorcycles 6 months ago, and am still dealing with complications and additional pain that has at times redefined what 10 means. Fortunately, it has improved somewhat. Haven’t determined the source of it yet though.
