Wind

Went to the airport today, and walked up to my airplane sitting under the bright blue sky. I checked the fuel and found a little water, checked the oil and found all was well, and did a thorough preflight. On the other hand, I haven't flown in two months, and the windsock was varying between straight out and hanging at twenty degrees away from the pole. It was straight down the runway - but the longer I go between flying, the less wind it takes to be too much.

So I didn't fly today - I'll check tomorrow, if the wind is calmer.

Yep, good luck. I know how much you love to fly.

Good move, and you 'need' to maintain currency... you know that...

Takeoffs are optional. After that choices become much more constrained. Prudence in a good middle name to adopt.
