    Default Plane shopping again

    First day without a plane in many years. So I am back plane shopping.
    There was a C-180 I really liked but it sold before I could snatch it up...
    The wife keeps dropping less than subtle hints that I should use my plane money for one of
    her schemes. Plus other comments like,,,," Well you can drink a beer now, its' not like you have a plane to fly anymore."
    It has only been 24 hours...

    Keep those prioritys straight...... remember you can sleep in your airplane but you can't fly your house.

    Still plane shopping.. A couple 180s I liked sold before I could look at them. A bunch of 180s I inspected were pretty beat.
    I have not seen any Maule M-6 or M-7s for sale... I did look over a Sedan that I sorta like...
    There are a few really nice WHEELS only planes out there.... Sometimes being a float plane type pilot bites you in the butt.

    Start looking down south. Usually you can get one so much cheaper there, the ticket down and flight up is more than saved.
    People in Alaska think their **** is worth it's weight in gold.
