Ship is broken in such a way that I probably won't fly this whole shift.  If I do it may be to remove the helicopters or at the very tail end of the shift.  My chances of making the fall board meeting are improving though.  I won't know for sure for a couple weeks.

Well things are changing some.  Looks like I will be doing some travel around Europe on my way to Norway for a week in the simulator.  Anything after 2 sessions in the simulator is not my idea of fun.  It doesn't appear I will be doing my normal work this shift at all.  Looking forward to about a month from now when I get to come home again.

The next Cascade chapter meeting is on the 15th of October, hope you can make it home the weekend before the meeting this time.

I have been in contact with Frank.  I think the odds are pretty good that I should be able to make the meeting this time.  Still on track for a week in Norway coming up.

Catania Italy until Sunday then flying to Stavanger Norway for 6 days of not-fun in the barf box (simulator).  No they don't generally get me sick, one of the guys I fly with gets sick regularly in them.  Looks like I will be hanging out in Trieste after Stavanger until the end of my shift then hopefully off a few days early for the ATHS board meeting in MA.  Not a done deal yet but I have done all I can to try and finagle my way off shift early for the meeting.  Depends on needs of the company at that point.

Done in Norway with the simulator - and hope I don't have to visit it again for years.  Back to Italy tomorrow to wait for my time to run out and come home.

Trieste is nice.  Worthy of a visit.  You can get to 3 other countries from here very easily.  Slovenia and Croatia are the other 2.  Trieste is in Italy.  Mostly see Scania trucks here with V8's.  Single axle drive which is pretty much the standard I see here in Europe.  Hope to be home in time for the board meeting but I haven't got the green light to leave shift early yet.  If my boss has to travel for some training, I will likely be staying here to maintain the contracted pilot numbers.  I should be home in time to attend my next chapter meeting October 15th.  Looking forward to it.  Not sure the KW will come out for that one, I may already have some parts off for the engine swap.

Homeward bound on Thursday via the ATHS Board meeting in West Springfield.  Arrive Thursday night, probably on my own for car and room and then last leg home on Sunday.  My fun meter is broken and I am ready to be home.

Met a few guys last night.  Enjoyed an adult beverage with them.  Meetings start in a couple hours.  Looking forward to meeting more folks and participating here.  Must say that driving on this side of the country - namely the MA Turnpike (I90) is a bit odd to this Pacific Northwesterner.  At 8PM the traffic was surprisingly light.

Board Meeting complete - awaiting the last flight home to Seattle.  2 hours airport, 6 hour flight, 1-2 hour wait for shuttle, then 2+ hour ride home.  Oh and I only got about 4 hours of sleep.
