Default 8 Hanger Life Style

Thought I would share.....
Sold my home and building another, during this 5-6 month process the wife decides we need to live in the hanger
Since I drive there everyday....why not...right ? saving gas.

So everyday around 8pm when it gets below my melting point I take to the sky......living the dream.

My landing fear is diminishing quickly, unless the wind is howling I press on regardless of direction.

I'm running out of places to fly for my daily 1 hour therapeutic drive.

Landing at night is not an option until I find a suitable landing light....and that's a whole different discussion. I'm in over $400 and still not what I want...Whelen STINKS

Here's a serious landing light for you:

Check to make sure it fits, it's pretty large, but crazy powerful! I have two of them on my -10.

I guess I should ask if anyone has used the XL-80 in their wing tips
