Mixed emotion Sunday

Hey everyone, hope you had a good weekend.

Since the last post, two significant things have happened. The weather finally turned back around. It was absolutely beautiful weather to fly in today-chilly and clear blue skies. I called my instructor Saturday night and we set up a flight for today. So I started driving over to Madison Airport, and all of a sudden I found myself in a ditch/farmer’s fence. I was on a country road going the speed limit and came up to a tricky turn in the low-shoulder road I had traveled through at least 45 times before. I braked for the turn, but instead of turning I slid right into the fence and put my car in a 45 degree angle from the ditch. I wasn’t hurt at all, but I’m worried about my car. It survived the tow truck’s attempt to getting it out of the ditch, and I drove away from the incident with a lighter wallet. However, I can’t help but worry while I’m driving it in fear that something got bent and I can’t turn well. I’ll be very careful until I can get back to Louisville for the holiday.

On a lighter note, the good weather was a welcome sight after a week of overcast and rain. I went up and did holding patterns, and two instrument approaches to i39. I got to use the foggles I got for my birthday on Friday from Sporty’s, and I really like them. I did pretty well, but I don’t think my head was in it after having the mini crash. Oh well, I guess I’ll move on and get over it. I’m going to try and fit a bunch of flights in this week since a lot of people are leaving after finals, and I’m staying until Thursday night for an employee Christmas party. That will give me a nice head start for the Spring semester and hopefully get me into cross countries a lot earlier. Hope you have a good week, and thanks for reading,

Matt
