Cabin in Payson, Arizona

I took this video way back in 2004 when Grandma and Grandpa Mabry were selling their cabin in Payson, AZ and since just getting a mac I thought I would put it all together and well here it is. I had some great memories there.

Oh Trevor, you made me cry. We did have lots of wonderful memories there. Thank you for sharing.

I am giving my memory of you here if that is okay. It is hard for a mom to give one memory of their child because life is made up of so many. It is a wonder you survived my mothering skills. I know I have improved and I am thankful you turned out so wonderful, despite me.
*I love the moment you looked into the Grand Canyon and realized that this was going to be harder than you thought. All the color drained from your face.
*Your delight when you came home from Philmont the first time. Your joy was contagious.
*The first time you passed the sacrament.
*When you made the decision to put your puppy to sleep, such a hard, painful decision.
*Your face when I told the doctor to correct your arm w/o anestesia.
*Talking to you on your mission, having nothing left to say, but not wanting to hang up.
*Seeing you and the rest of God's army walking down the terminal in Belgium, I have no words to describe it.
*Our trip in Europe. Travel log from the back seat of a car.
*Watching you marry Jessica in the temple.

That's a few of a billion. I love you so much Trevor.

I got My Tailwheel endorsement!

Some of you might be asking your self what a tailwheel endorsement is. Well as a private pilot I can fly but not all types of airplane and to fly different kinds of plane I need to get training in that kind of plane then get sign off by an instructor or what called an endorsement. The last 2 weeks or so i've be flying the little red taildragger shown about. It's really fun to fly very touchy but can be so smooth. I got the sign off on Wednesday day and then Nick and I went up yesterday we had a little bumpily landings but it was fun and it's cheap to rent. Jessica won't go up with me though because it is an old plane, from 1942, and not all metal. The wings and most of the fuselage are steel tubing covered with vinyl. I'm bummed because it's safe but that's ok I'll just find a taildragger out of metal and take her up.

[Video] Sells, AZ E78 airport

I Flew to Sells, AZ today. I love finding and going to new airports. This one is a smaller airport with tight runway with cracks in the pavement lined with bushes and trees. I had never landed with trees so close to the runway it was a neat new experience. This is looking down runway 22 

My trusty 152 at the runway 4 end.

The house that had a helicopter take off from it and what looked like a fuel truck was there.
What was the FBO.
E78 from the air.
Saw this after I landed at Chandler (CHD).  very nice.

Still trying to get my 250nm solo cross country I decided to fly to Utah last Wednesday. Jessica had driven up with her mom the to be where it is cool and help her grandma. The plan was to fly up on Wednesday and back on Friday. Although I was taking a faster Cessna 172 it couldn't make the 455nm flight to Spanish Fork so I had to stop somewhere for fuel
The flight was going great until I got to Page, AZ, my planned stop for fuel. The landing I made was beautiful if I don't say so, but it was really rough after the nose wheel touched so I taxied off. Low and behold the nose tire was flat. So 2 1/2 hours later because of the incompetency of the mechanic there I was back in the air.
The stay in Utah was great nice cool air and temps with a wonderful wife. Friday on the way back everything was great until I got to Page. I landed, fueled up everything seemed normal got in the plane the thing wouldn't start. The starter wasn't engaging the prop. I …
