bike, ground school, jeep, flying

Well what a crazy title , but it is a summary of what i have been up to since i last posted on here.

yesterday i went to see about getting a motor bike license here as my one is not honoured here.
i basically sat a knowledge test and they gave me a learners liscence …..minus some restrictions becasue i hold a full motorcycle liscence in another country so now i can ride any bike i like but just not at night , if thats the only restriction i am sure i could just live with that forever as i very rarely ever ride at night anyway….. i have to take a road test to get my full iscence but i cant do that until a month from now …..its a stipulation on the liscence.

Ground school was yesterday , it went ok we where learning about the parts of a plane and engines etc it was  alittle boaring but hey you have to do it.
Today was my second flying lesson as my last one was cancelled becasue of bad weather, i actually did the take off in this lesson , i was totally freaked out ……i didnt like it atall….. but the instructor didnt even notice i was freaking …noone ever does lol i guess i am just to laid back ….any ways she asked if i didnt want to do the take off next time and i said of course i do …….. i need to get used to it right?

finally i got my jeep , i know i have been talkign about it for sometime now but i finaly got one …it a nice blue color.
i had never driven one before so i was told that i woudl probably hate it but i actually love it ….its so primative and it feels just like driving a little tank……but it is also so manouverable.
i have decided to take it for a bit of a trip this weekend ….the weather is supposed to be good and i think i have found some ligth trails on the map that lead to a waterfall , so i am going to head up there and check it out ……dont worry i will be taking lots of pics on this excursion,

ok well this is just a brief update and i will write more after the trip.

oh and here are some pics of the jeep …..i decided to call it Harry …..there is logic to it, well my kindof logic.

A Baseball loss and a few days downtown

i spent a few days down town this week as we had a game on Thursday evening and then one on Sunday afternoon , turned out that all though Thursday was a dry day the pitch was a little waterlogged form the few days of rain we had previously, so that game was canceled , however Sunday came around and weather was good but we managed to suffer our first defeat . the team we played where rumored to be the best in our division and we only lost by one run so i don't think we did too badly at all ……although i never like to loose .

apart form the ball games and a slight bit of plumbing Friday night were i helped a friend install a sink and faucet i did not really get up to much else really …just enjoyed a weekend of downtown stuff and a small dinner party.

i have been reading some of my flying books as to get ready for my flying lesson tomorrrow , i am quite excited about it all.

here are a few photos i took with my cell , there was a great moon this weekend but i couldnt get a good pic of it with my cell i wish i had taken my big camera , i thought about it as i was leaving but then though i woudl not have chance to use it and i woudlnt really need it

Update from a crazy month

Seems i have not wrote anything on here for over a month!
April has just been a crazy month , what with traveling home, starting flying lessons , starting to play softball so i will try to do a little update of the month and i always manage to miss things out .

i started my flying lessons today so that's first on my agenda to write about, i was supposed to do my first one about a week ago , but i ended up with a crazy bug and was not fit for anything for about 5 days , i am over that now so i got around to my first lesson , it was very good and a lot of fun , the banking scares me a little but i just need to get used to it ……i think.

Baseball,
as some of you know i have never played baseball in my life and joined a local softball league, i had been away for most of th epractices at the start of the season so my first practice was a friendly game with one of the other teams , it was so much fun and i think i did ok. we won at least then on the next practice before the first game of the season i strained my leg awwww so painful the muscle on the top of the thigh it was sooo sore ….. i am finaly back in action and free for the next game wich is tomorrow , the past 2 games i have missed we have won so we are undefeated …hope i dont upset the chi 🙂 .
i am really getting in to the baseball thing , i didnt think i would but thought i may watch one or two on tv so i thought the Brave being that they where the only one i had actualy been to see live and the only game i had seen , but all i found was the blue jays and they are really good and being in canada i guess i should follow them so i guess they have by default inherited me as a fan.

i have also been getting around to editing and printing out some of the pictures i have acumilated over the winter , some have come out really cool, we will see what ocmes of it all.

my imported things arrived too , all uneventful really apart from my computer rattling when i lifted it up , the stupid quick release hard disk holder had done just that and released so was banging around the case , lukily i t seem not to have damged anything , the PSU however didnt work i dont think it was a country change thing i just think it died in transit maybe didnt get enough food or water on the trip …or maybe it was just that .

now i am sure i have probably missed out lots but i think i have typed enough for this post im sure your all over it
already!
