My Flight Journal

Got my XC's figured out I think. This weekend I'm going from SFB-CGC (Crystal River). That's only gonna give me between 1.5 and 2 hrs. I can stretch that out by practicing slow flight and other maneuvers during the trip.
Then I plan to get the balance in one very long trip. Going Sanford - Leesburg - Ocala - Gainseville - Palatka - St. Augustine - Sanford, with landings at Gainesville and St. Aug.
Between those two, I should be able to get 5 hrs. And then I'll need another 2.5 of dual to get ready for the checkride. Firgure that's 2 flights. Kinda neat to be able to see some light at the end of the tunnel finally. Only taken me a year and a half (or 4 depending if you want to count being sidelined by kidney stone problems for 2.5 years). Should be taking the checkride with a little less than 60 hrs in my logbook. Which is more than I'd wanted but considering I went for months without flying at all several times, that's not that bad.
I probably just jinxed myself by writing this.
