Airplanes, Cars and Jumpys

Getting called out on a redeye to JFK on a short call moment, I flew LGB-JFK then get a deadhead back to LGB about one and half hours after landing at 4:35am then jumped back to LGB at 7:00am. Drove home, cooked a meal for the family then right to a birthday party for one of Norah's old classmates. Good times!

Thursday Back At It!

So no breakfast or coffee to start off, but after a little hiccup in the morning start, i'm off to school, Choice Juicery then over to the Genie Car Wash. After school pickup, Ben falls asleep in the car on the way to a lunch playdate so we head home and I cook meal #2 from The Green Chef. We also received two more boxes of meals (another from Green Chef and one from Hello Fresh) so no grocery shopping for a few days. Also, Norah makes her own decision given the three choices. #dadcantdecide

JFK to LGB

After a delayed departure out of Albuquerque followed by an even later hotel arrival, my schedule gets modified and I become illegal per FAR 117 rest requirements. We are at the airport hotels which are still, once again, too far from NYC so I find myself just heading back to the airport for the ride back home.

[117.25.(e)] No certificate holder may schedule and no flightcrew member may accept an assignment for any reserve or flight duty period unless the flightcrew member is given a rest period of at least 10 consecutive hours immediately before beginning the reserve or flight duty period measured from the time the flightcrew member is released from duty. The 10 hour rest period must provide the flightcrew member with a minimum of 8 uninterrupted hours of sleep opportunity.

Albuquerque New Mexico

We landed late last night. I chose to sleep in and catch up on sleep. I changed my mind about going to the Petroglyph National Park and headed instead to the Standard Diner followed by a movie for ONLY $5.15!!! Logan was pretty good but maybe a little underwhelming.

Coffee afterwards to wait out the rain and found an awesome shop called Espresso Fino!

Day Sleep and Lunch with Matt

Arriving early AM, I uploaded the last two videos from the weekend then slept hard. Matty P came over and picked me up and we headed out to Tum Thai in Rockville Center ~ 15 minutes away. Since the city is just too difficult and time consuming to get to, this was a great find. Flew to Albuquerque and back in the hotel. Short day with a full day of rest tomorrow.

End of Lake Jennings Camping & Beginning of a Rare 4-Day Trip

Day 3 of 3 camping at Lake Jennings. A definitely better night's sleep for all. Missed out on some awesome fireside chat since I fell asleep putting Benji down. Snoozed a bit longer than intended but we all had an awesome pancake breakfast brought to you by one of the awesome camping moms. This trip couldn't have been as successful without the planning of one of the most organized camping moms!

I found out I got assigned a four day trip so after packing up, went home, had lunch, took an awesome shower then napped up until I had to go and drive to Long Beach. Took an extra hour because of traffic and of course the plane was late so I was on time!

Back in Action

Obviously after a long trip and getting back at 2:00am, the morning of coffee making and drop off takes a small it. Today, I just got it going and even volunteered some more IT work at the school to get their copier, printer, fax machine to also start sending scanned images to the different e-mails. Good times! It's Wednesday so that means Tumble Gym Bus and a spontaneous Chich-Fil-A day date, naps, grilled cheese and mom comes home!

Roundtrip Redeye

I knew I was going to get this trip yesterday so I was able to prepare for it with a nap and some large amounts of coffee. LAX-MCO (not Buffalo), at the hotel for 11 hours then back to LAX. Short and sweet video since I can't really do too much recording. Thanks for watching! I also forgot my GoPro in the car so I didn't get anything on it. Thinking of pulling the trigger on the GoPro Karma Grip or DJI Osmo Gimbal.
