No more camera

I dropped Olympus digital camera, a little over 1 m to the double carpetted floor in my room. The camera itself was in a hefty bag.
Yet, it was the death call.
The lens mechanism was jammed, I suspect.
Later, I had fun opeining up the innard of the camera, being zapped a few times by high electric discharge. At the end, it's totally destroyed, and into a garbgae can. Left are a nice bag and memory chip.
Never more Olympus!

Golden Ears

Goden Ears from Cedar Street, along Addington Creek. This is my favourite cycling route to Minnekhada Lodge, where Princess Elizabeth spent a night.

The main peak on the left; the lower triangle farthest right is Blanshard Needle, one pitch rock climbing. Younger Muso did it once. That was vigorous Muso, today head was aching, nose was running. Muso had definitely flu.
Before the lodge, retraced the route home for recuperation.

Evening Ninja Ride

a0025444_138960.jpgSuch a beautiful evening. Though rush hour traffic had started already, Ninja ride to Buntzen Lake.
a0025444_1310952.jpgI had only 5 minutes to spare at the park. The gate was being closed.

Sechelt-Gibson

Rode to Delta Airpark (28km), flew Turbi to Sechelt-Gibson, walked a long way to the nearest restaurant for lunch, flew back and rode back another 28 km home.
Honestly I felt tired. Flying takes up so much energy, I guess. That must be the reason Japanese fighter pilots were fed well even towards the end of the War, when food was scarce.
Next time, I'll take a camera on this kind of clear weather flying.

VFR Over the Top

VFR Over the Top qualification was a simple matter. At Transport Canada office I payed $30, and then a new license with "VFR OTT" was issued to me.
This helps me on a future ferry flight of Mooney from Calgary over the Rockies.

VFR on Top

S. and T. (IFR instructor) gave me a good information on VFR on top regulation in Canda.
I learned this privilege comes automatically with IFR rating. As I had IFR before, I must have it with me, though my license doesn't display specifically.
This may dramatically help me for a ferry flight of Mooney CF-GUS from Calgary over the Rocky Mountains.
With supplementary O2, I may take the Victor Airway V304 at 14,000 feet, jsut like IFR flight. GUS has a turbo charger equipped.

Supplementary Oxygen in Flight

Seminar day at lunchtime, I met with a couple of familiar pilots at the Rudy's cafe, Boundary Airport. Both of them gave me a good tip on O2 for flying. B. told me there is a store on Canada Way at Willingdon, where they sell O2. They might have cannulas, too. Another B. gave me URL for O2 satulation tester.
