Snow is now four hours flight behing us, as is tuning multithred DCS. No pointing of cameras at interesting military things as the Greeks have no sense of humour about that
Arrive for a week
Something very satisfying being on an all inclusive package. Drinks on tap and in quantity. Singapore Slings in this case
Brandy Sour and Bloody Mary.
We aspire to work our way through the cocktail list
yes … don’t point a camera at anything painted green, we don’t want to see you do an arma dev.

Lot’s of interesting aircraft flying through the skies up here too. Exercise Joint Viking is in full swing.

Are the joint Vikings attacking south and the Cobra Warriors going north?
I was amused that Waddington stopped flying on Weds due to snow. I am sure the Finns were amused and the Indians maybe less so

Started my trip, last Sunday (March 5th). I had a 0710 departure, so I had to leave the house NLT 0330 to get an hour at KDKX. A DC-3 had flown in the day prior and I wanted night shots before it left.
Here’s the result. The loss of sleep was worth the effort.
Those Love Classics
A ‘fun’ day yesterday mopping up after a grass fire about an hour South of where I live. I don’t think I have seen as many crews on such a small fire ever before. About 60-70 Hectares burnt and at any given time over the past three days there were at least a dozen crews on hand, plus two choppers with buckets. But I guess after the 2019/20 fires, they are leaving nothing to chance.
My offsider at the end of the hose (only the two of us on that appliance and I was running the pump/Crew Chief)
The other tanker that we were paired with for the day.

One of the benefits of working in IT I have over a lot of farmers. Internet PTP link to the barn, PoE camera installed. Just in time for lambing, night vision may mean we get more sleep this time.
That is cool!
Now, how could we integrate ChatGPT to this?

Technology is great. But do you have an Aga to keep them warm?
March 20, 2023, 12:09pm
I do indeed.
There’s always the muck heap if the Aga is in use.
should’nt they look like this before going in the Aga
on a side note hope the holiday was good
