Everyone deals with unexpected stuff on trips. But this is big. Got an email last night: a check/recall notification for the plane’s (just replaced) engine. And of course we are a million miles away from a Mooney specialist. Need to abort the original trip (and who the hell knows how we will get the plane home from New Brunswick).
But have decided to press on – fly commercial to Newfoundland and figure out the rest later (can’t drive – it’s an island). Thankfully bought a bottle of gin yesterday and the G&T tastes pretty damn good.
We are channeling this guy’s attitude – watched him surf on the “bore tide” – where strong tide of the Bay of Fundy meets Petitcodiac River flow.
P.S. Realized we were leaving New Brunswick with very little visual record of what the heck this place looks like. Will post a couple of pix soon.
