It has been a busy time here at our new house. Mesa flying is going very well. I now have 540 hours flying the CRJ-700 aircraft for United Express out of Dulles Airport. Still a few more snowstorms and March winds to dodge in the northern states, but a great learning experience.

Workers are making tremendous progress with our basement refinish, and most importantly with the installation of my new workshop. The bench, pegboards and shelving are all in place. Paint is being applied with further finishing details to be completed over the next few weeks.

My new modeling work area will allow me to build a much wider range of larger and more complex electric radio control model planes. In addition, the flying weather in Georgia will be a lot more hospitable as compared to the ever-present wind in the Chicago area.

More to follow as the basement upgrade is completed, I unpack my boxes and start on my next building project!
