    Sittin in a hangar

    Hi Mike,
    Hope everything goes well on your recovery. Not sure if I would worry about
    the plane flying. Probably sufficient to just run the engine a bit every
    week or so and maybe taxi around a bit. Should be able to find someone to do
    it without having a concern about insurance. BTW, is there still a tower on
    the north end of the runway put up by the property owner who does not like
    airplanes?

    I'm grounded. No not some regulatory or moral dilemma that would "have a
    right" to keep me from flying...

    In a not so smooth move, very unrelated to flying (except for the brief
    moment when my entire body ceased to be in contact with the ground) I
    managed to completely squish all of the jelly out of one of my vertebral
    discs, the one between the 6th and seventh cervical vertebra, for those of
    you who have done similar things.

    The doctors tried several avenues and eventually came to the conclusion that
    surgery would serve me best. So that was done Monday. And as I sit here
    (able to sit and type for more than a couple of minutes at a time, thanks to
    modern drugs and the symptomatic relief already beginning to show up) I
    realize that I'm probably a good 4-6 weeks from being able to fly my
    airplane again.

    This makes me very sad. And it's not good for the airplane either.

    Any suggestions for getting some time on the tach without making major
    changes to my insurance? I don't know anyone else in the immediate area
    that has mouse time. Should I expect to pay a CFI (who is mouse
    checked-out) to fly her around for an hour a week....?

    Wish I was closer to Bob S, I'd be getting an early start on that
    "extremely-owner-assisted" annual. Maybe even paint-prep!

    Best regards,

    Mike - I honestly wouldn't worry about it. Sure, it's better for
    the airplanes to run regularly, but letting it sit for a couple of
    months shouldn't hurt anything, but maybe run the battery down. If
    you're really stuck and not sure if it'll be longer, you might have
    the wife/friend tape over any openings to keep the critters out,
    then rotate the prop backwards a dozen times every week or two. If
    possible, start it every couple of weeks, turn it into the wind, and
    let the oil warm until the temp stabilizes. Charge the battery &
    check it's water. Do a VERY thorough preflight when you do get back
    to her and consider changing the oil after the first flight.

    As for working on the annual, I keep telling people to do that stuff
    now while it's warm! Do you really want to be changing brake pads
    or hoses in the winter?
