Charlie Travels and a Bath

Its always better when you get to fly to work, right?

Well, Charlie let me do that for 4 days this past week thankfully.

The weather behaved, checkrides were scheduled and got to happen as planned, and timing made sense to go to them via air instead of driving on those road things to get the work done.

It’s always better to get to fly in Charlie when I am headed to airports anyway. Plus, I am sure it saved me a bunch of time over the week instead of driving. Plus, no traffic in my way!

Since Charlie and I had a good week, and since (as a bad plane owner), I honestly had not washed her since we bought her. It seemed fitting to finish the week off today with a bath.

Some dish soap, a sponge and bucket, and a hose and at least a couple layers of dust want away.

Charlie is now back in the hangar drying and ready for next week’s adventures, weather and schedule permitting.
