So now grounded with potentially some help this early evening, from a local who's got the torque wrenches and other tools to pull and check the spark plugs. Keeping my fingers crossed. Otherwise I may be here until Monday when the mechanics come back to work.
I left Norwood, MA yesterday (Friday) and am enroute to the NOLS Annual Faculty Summit. Yesterday. I had a bumpy ride yesterday morning to Sullivan County airport, in NY, but a much smoother ride in the afternoon into Pennsylvania.

An even smoother ride was had this morning, cruising at 6,500 feet with a max speed of 132 mph! Stopped for lunch, fuel and to get a weather update when Fred said he's didn't feel like going.
Flying out to a NOLS Faculty Summit the things we as NOLS instructors teach are in my mind. Pack-packing has become airplane packing. Tolerance for Adversity and Uncertainty for things mechanical issues join TOA for weather delays. The list goes on. Expeditionary skills for the wilderness of the sky!
