I flew from Denver to Green River Wyo in a 10 sets.....over the Rockies.  That plane didn't just bob and weave, it dropped seemingly like a free fall for seconds a clip and suddenly jump up.  The first time it happened the attendant hit the ceiling which wasn't a big jump because you had to stoop over and slice between the seats 12" apart, but she came down partially lateral and bounced off the seat arm from her ribs.  Suffice to say she was in a bit of pain and the pilot continued on to Green River.

Return trip ....cancelled it when I got there and rented a car for a one way 4.5 hour drive to Salt Lake City and flew home from there. No way, no how was i getting back on that dinky plane and to go back over the Rockies.

Same thing happened flying into State College PA.  We approached over Mt Nittany which is an ant hill compared to the Rockies. We hit an updraft  off the mountain.  Sure enough, as soon we exited, Bam, the plane dropped like a lead balloon. Junk went flying all over the cabin. Fortunately the pilot recovered the aircraft before we bottomed out. Nittany is only 2,000 feet of elevation and we dropped maybe halfway down in what felt like a free fall.  That was in a 30 seat turbo prop.

Never had that happen to me.  That's why I don't like flying small aircraft.  I will do it but only in stellar weather.  I don't need rain or wind.  No thank you Word

Tried to break the string of rainy days yesterday, but a late night shower sneaked in overhead.

It started raining here yesterday, rained hard, still raining. I'm glad I flew to Minden when I did. I'd much rather have a bumpy ride than land in the rain in a plane with a sliding canopy.

View from the ramp at Minden. A nice sunny, windy day.

Small drizzle this AM, just enough to wet down the grass seed.

Wife went to see her mother so I pulled out the bucket list for the day.


Soaked an old cast iron Erie fry pan and griddle (lye solution) to bare metals
Dropped off tools son needed to borrow will the lye did its trick
Started stripping the alligator lacquer of the old grandfather clock I picked up 2 weeks ago.  Lacquer finish was too far gone to salvage. Full cabinet is going to take time.
In between, cleaned and re-seasoned the cast iron, once every 1.5 hours, flax oil in the oven
In between followed results of WTT
Installed Amazon fire stick on a TV so the wife can flip through Amazon movies while ironing.
...had a beer
...and another
Now settling in to watch some PGA
