Well EAA's AirVenture 2009 has been over 4 days now and I think I've finally recovered! I spent a few hours Sunday Night and all day Monday driving back to Blacksburg, VA. Having Pam along made the trip go much faster. It's so much nicer (especially for the recruits!) when she can travel with me.
I spent Tuesday unpacking, going over materials and business cards I'd received as well as cleaning out my inbox (it's under 500 now!).
I took Wednesday off to help move our daughter into her new apartment and today is my first day back to the daily grind. Hard to prioritize after 8 days of Airplanes! Now to fill out the forms and reports (the job's not over until the paperwork is done....)
If you get a chance, check out the International Association of Missionary Aviation (IAMA) website at www.iamanet.org. There you can find a lot of info about this year's airshow as well as a podcast featuring our flight simulator (Podcast #7).
This morning got an email from my boss asking if I want to help ferry a 182 down to Ecuador at the end of the month. I have a lot of trips planned between now and the middle of Sept. when I have to be at HQ for our semi-annual recruiting meetings so am struggling whether to go on this trip or not. I sure would hate to miss the opportunity....
If you're reading this after the Aug 10th deadline, write me and ask what I decided to do!
