A catalyst to a new years resolution...
Hey everyone - With the prospect of possibly taking on a build for an RV-14 on the table...  I am very aware of how thinly my time / energy / and resource are already spread...  So there is a lot of soul searching happening right now.  Regardless, there will be a ton of help if I do this - no way can I do it alone.  AND this is not the sort of thing that I should distract myself with until I can get a handle on my stalled Instrument rating training.  So - This winter, I have not booked any production travel, and am back to the IFR books...  Aaaaaarg.  

The IFR written test prep has been a huge weight on my shoulders.  I got really close while I was doing my multi engine rating last year... But an overlap happened when I got close to the Multi flight test, and I decided to focus on that and let the IFR stuff fade.  the Multi test got rescheduled 3 times over a month due to bad winter weather...  and then I felt I'd lost IFR momentum, got afraid to face the test (as I had already failed it once - that was very demoralizing (I got a 60%, pass is a 70%) and then started traveling / filming again, and didn't touch those books for months.  So I am basically starting over... again.  Sorry to be whining, but this is the sort of thing that stops a lot of pilots from progressing, so I am going to be vulnerable to telling the story as I struggle to do it - despite the embarrassingly poor pace at which I am making (or not making) progress. 

Ok - I expect to get at least one more post (likely a free / exclusive) out before the holidays - but if I don't - have a great one!  Thanks for being a part of this thing! 

And P.S. ALL $5+ supporters that joined before Dec 2018 should have your flight suit patch by now - I mailed the last of them out a week ago.  SO - if you don't have them yet, please email me; Sometimes they get lost in the mail likely due to U.S. customs snagging them because I do not take the time to do paper work to declare them.
