The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
Today we were going to jump in and set up the aircraft numbers table and then move on with autopilot work. All that faded away as we sat and watched the weather poop on our parade.

Mike and I headed back to the house so we could pick up my bride and go out for lunch. The unanimous vote was for the Sunset Grille located at the Sunset Marina in West Ocean City. We each enjoyed the Guacamole dip appetizer followed by crab cakes. My sandwich had shrimp salad too, everything was very good.
I gave Mike the nickle tour of Ocean City, heading up Ocean Highway to see all the condos and restaurants. Traffic wasn't too bad so we decided on a stop at Dumsers Ice Cream. I had a sugar cone with banana, Mary had a soft ice cream chocolate, and Mike had a Sundae.
Once home and settled in Mike and I worked through multiple scenarios on the Garmin 480 Simulator. Approaches, holds, using the suspend button while in the holds and just clear of the hold. The 480 will revert back to the Procedure turn or hold if you hit suspend (SUSP). Pretty neat feature.
The revised plan is an early start for flight time tomorrow morning. We are both ready to get after it, so stay tuned for video and another blog post!
