Three Strikes

By lex, on September 25th, 2011

Did the 0430 wake-up for the commute from Sandy Eggo to Ventura County. Out of the door by 0500, made the front gate at 0730. Sunday morning early is mos’ def the way to make this trip. (It took almost 3+30 heading home last Friday. On the motorcycle.) That’s the good news.

The bad news is that I’ve got three strikes agin’ me:

1) One of the Kfirs is down, and I’m too junior to fly mission support solo.
2) The weather is below minima for newly qualified dudes at 1100 broken, 3 miles vis.
3) I’m Irish.

So, it’s back in the M5 to Sandy Eggo again. Next potential hop is on the 28th.

Rather a bummer, really.
