check rides are the only chance you get to show off your skills to someone who cares

unless he says stop this ride keep on and dont crash

If you make a mistake..... DON'T QUIT!!!! One mistake in flying will not kill you, it will be a series of them. Don't quit over one! Good luck! This will be one of your more demanding flying rides. Oral is usually a joke.

Congratulations! You are well on your way to being a sucessful pilot making twenty grand a year and having a kids sired by your pool boy because you were on the other side of the country and couldn't nail your wife yourself!

if the successful/safe outcome of a manuever is ever in question, and the DE needs to intervene, yes you're done.

Don't get his hopes up, there's no way he could afford a pool, let alone the pool boy to go with it. More likely it'll be the mailman.

ken luckett did my oral exam. it went just fine. in fact, it was less of a test atmosphere and more of a learning session. if possible, i would have loved to sit down with him and talked for a few more hours. the way he ties real life into the points he's trying to make is entertaining and helpful. it's nice to get a realistic view of things.

as for the flight:
KEVB 081450Z 36025G36KT 3SM -RA BKN008 OVC030 26/24 A2983

i ain't going nowhere today :) take out the wind, though, and i woulda loved to fly in this weather! i am on for monday at 11 am. i'll let you know how it goes!!!!
