    No I wouldn't. I've worked on some GA stuff that doesn't even have hydraulics but little on bizjets. Oh, I also teach fuel systems. What did you want to know about how a carburetor works? It's magic, really, how physics works for us. Electric is the big mystery for me. I know about the magic black boxes that won't work if all the magic smoke escapes.

    Due to complications, I am in a holding pattern in Honolulu until the ticket gates open for my flight. My taxi driver was nice enough to take me out to Waikiki. What a zoo. Lots of us Alaskans like fewer people rather more...and Waikiki is definitely a more people kind of place. I did get some photos I'll share later. At least I can say I've been to Waikiki beach now. Was that even on my bucket list? I'll list it and then cross it through now...
    I'll be home by 0600 AK time. That gives me a day and a half to get settled back in before reentering the rat race that is work. Partner says it's melting fast and our trail to the driveway is impassable. We park in a lot about 1/4 mile from the house and use a sled to drag stuff in. Happens every year so we expect nothing less.
    The biggest problem with visiting loved ones is I miss them so much more when you leave.

    Sometimes you have to take less until better comes along. Be careful, though, some employers are pretty nasty if they find out you are still looking. What you should try to avoid is moving from on job to another too often. Find one that "will do" and stick with it until that much better job comes along. When I first retired from the military and had earned my airframe & powerplant license, no one would hire me as a mechanic because I lacked experience, despite 20 years in the military. Good luck, kiddo!

    May you fly on the wings of angels
    May your landing be soft and then
    May there be no winds or tangles
    So you're safe when you're home, amen.

    Vent away, Montro. If it's any comfort, lots of us would help you if we could. How do you feel about milking goats?

    I just had the wierdest vision flash before my eyes. With so many of us in various forms of transition, I imagined the entire Coffee Shop forming a sort of commune on GW's goat farm in Alaska. At least there would be a lot of us to do chores. :)

    GW damn dude... Should have honked when you went bye... I understand how stuff happens when you are dealing with the military... Did you fly into Hickam or what ever the new name is? I would have bought you a cup of joe... Thinking you might still be here if you don't get into ANC until 0600 03.26.19... Sure could have pointed you in a better direction than Waikiki... I guess it can be considered a destination of sorts... Hope everything goes smoothly for you... Officers Club on Hickam used to have some really good chow and a pretty good environment... Happy Trails my cyber friend...

    And a lot of us to dance, and sing, and celebrate each small thing! Oh, yeah, and share recipes.
