    It's been a little bit "fun" getting the ship repaired! Pulled 'er into the hangar to get everything between the throttle quadrant and the engines either repaired or replaced! Function restored, everything checks out, time to press on!

    Parked and ready to head for the house. As the ads in the magazines say about O08, "If you've found the Sutter Buttes, you've found us!"

    Enough time to call ahead for some "Louis-style garlic bread," zip by the house, get everything I forgot, and get back to the ramp. My comfort level has increased tenfold. Ahhh, the comforts of home!
    Now... on to O46, beautiful Weed, California in the shadow of 14,162 foot Mount Shasta! With this trusty ship, it ain't gonna take long!

    O08-O46 - Here we go!
