Blowing In The Wind

My chances at finishing up my Instrument rating are blowing in the wind. No update on the nav/com radio install so 679er is on hold. Winds today do not look good especially since Wilmington is down to one runway. The weather here yesterday made it impossible to fly despite my radio issues. I also got late word Thursday night I had additional tests that had to be completed or my surgery would be rescheduled. To much planning went into the date that is set and the next available date is in June. Even though this would allow more flying and my shot at a check ride it would also pretty much guarantee my Gaston's trip. As sweet as this sounds, I can not tolerate the pain in the hip any longer, it's time as they say to face the music.

Monday and Tuesday are not looking good for much of a chance to complete the VOR check on the nav/com or to get a good mock check ride knocked out. I am patiently waiting for a break in wx and for my luck to change, there has got to be some good mojo out there somewhere!
