Leg Notes:
Gee, you'd think it's been about two weeks since I last flew! Hmmph. It wasn't *bad*, mind you, but I sure wasn't two steps ahead of her. She jumped right up into the sky :-) and so my pattern was close, which made it tricky to get onto final. Things were fast, too; it felt like I was screaming through the pattern.
After one not-bad approach and landing, I went around for another -- and this approach was even worse, so I just went around for a deep breath and tried again. Gaaah! So I seriously need to work on staying ahead of the plane and making sure I slow down the flying enough to be the boss.

Leg Notes:
After that, it was time to actually head over to Pickens. Took a turn over the highway to give Laura a chance to get out and then asked where she was -- and she was ahead of me! So I had fun catching up with her and slipped down in front of her right at the end before she turned off and I headed for the pattern :-)
Unfortunately, I did the same thing here, so I turned my original approach to 34 into an extra turn and approach to 16. Everything would have been fine and dandy -- if I had given myself enough pattern width to make my turn and be lined up. I'm still flying BlueBird in my head :-/
All in all, though, I'm delighted to have been up and did not badly and got three more to refresh my currency. Yay!
