    paiken's Reverse Rockwell Route

    Getting a late start due to real world issues. Worked a full day yesterday at the Post Office, then off to celebrate a good friends 87th birthday. Things are back to "normal" around here today, so it's off we go.

    Departing YMEN Essendon for YBCV Charleville in the Rockwell Aero Commander.

    Expect banging, belching and an occasional manly fart as you roar down the runway at full power. (I have found that the engine can make similar noises)

    Blast...damn...30 minutes into the flight and FSX decides to freeze up. Looks like I'll have to re-start. Not an auspicious beginning to a long race. Oddly enough, I was just reading about another 'cream screen' on another thread when my rig froze. That will teach me to tempt the fates. Back shortly with a re-start.

    OK...here we go again. Departing Essendon YMEN for Charleville YBCV. Hopefully I've sorted out the freezing issue (a recently added program), and am now shakily confident (yes it is an oxymoron) that I will make it to Charleville.

    Down safely at Mt. Issa YBMA. A remarkably uneventful flight. Clear skies, little or no turbulence and the flattest, most featureless bit of flying I've done in ages.Click image for larger version.

    Deuces wild on this flight. Uneventful until I reached WSSL...seems as if default weather wasn't working outside of established areas, at least in the middle of the ocean. Mild thunderstorms coming into Seletar.

    After landing in Singapore a few days ago, I noticed oil leaking out of the port engine. Muttering a curse, I spat on the ground...and then the real trouble began. Apparently those sort of things are frowned upon here...whereupon I spent the next 48 hours as a "guest" of the local police. After pleading no contest to the charges brought upon me, I paid the fine and agreed to never set foot in Singapore again. I fixed the oil leak and am now leaving...

    Departing (with great haste)WSSL Seletar for VOPB Port Blair.

    My wife decided she just 'had to check out something on facebook'...when she finally finished I noticed the dreaded milky screen...program completely locked up. I ended up having to re-boot the computer to put things right again. Then it was off to take care of "honey do's" for the rest of the day. Between my wife being unable to drive and her mother moving in with us (she cannot drive either due to macular degeneration), I ended up at two different shopping malls and a grocery store. When that was finally done 6 hours later I was wiped out...Sometimes I'm glad to go to work so that I have some time to myself.
