Positive Maintenance For The Plane and Me!

I finally made my first flight of the year. After getting some great flight time in December, I was able to squeeze in a long overdue oil change. Of course this necessitated me taking a quick flight out to the beach and back to get the oil hot. This short flight also allowed me to spend some needed time in my "happy place".

The oil change went very well. No shiny stuff in the filter and almost no carbon deposits. Given the little use and extended time on the old oil, the oil color still looked pretty good. Now we'll just wait and see what Blackstone's oil analysis has to say. Anyway, the plane is now ready for the trips we have planned in the near future. I can't wait!

Looking North Towards Jacksonville Beach


  1. If you take any trips in the near future, I'll live vicariously through you - I don't go far from home this time of the year!

  2. So far I have the Bahamas Habitat Fly In & Help Out Event next month and then back to the Bahamas for Spring Break with the family in March. After seeing some of your pics from museums, I found an awesome one in Georgia I want to check out. I hope to make that jaunt soon.
