I made a quick run to the airport after visiting Mary's Mom in the hospital today. I wanted to pull the battery and make sure it was charged for a possible beach run next weekend. After uncovering and a pre-flight inspection I tried to start 08Romeo. I only got a few clicks then gave up. I pulled the one battery that seems to have an issue and charged it with Marys car.
It seems if I let 08Romeo sit longer than three weeks she won't start. With a 15-20 minute charge with cables she'll fire right up. I'm going to order a new battery and when I change the oil, in ten hours, I'll have the battery installed.
Once 08Romeo started I decided to take her up for a short spin and really let the batteries charge. I contacted ground for a taxi clearance then over to the tower when my run up was completed. I headed to the south east and did some slow flight and steep turns then turned back for the airport. With the current ATIS info noted I made my way for runway two seven as directed. A super sweet landing without even a squeak of the mains, I had to feel it rolling to know I was indeed on the ground. I made the first turn off and headed to the tie down.
