Dover dropped me and I made the call to Wilmington as I was getting ready to let down for pattern altitude. I was directed to make a right base entry for runway niner. I acknowledged and flowed through my checks. Since I haven't flown in a while I made sure to verbalize my one thousand foot checks on climb out and at cruise. On the set up for landing I made the Gas, U should know (pattern alt VFR or first two steps for the missed IFR), Mixture rich, Pump on, Switches/safety (GUMPS) check twice, about three miles out and then again turning final.
