Embracing the Pin…November 29, 2012
I had mentioned a bit before about how the previous owner of my C180 used copious amounts of cloths pins as memory devices inside the cabin. At first, I thought it was a bit schmarmy, but I have decided to fully embrace them and go all the way.
This past summer I landed at a friends private grass strip. After two hours of farting around I realized that the slight hill the 170 was on had caused almost all the fuel in the right tank to shift to the left. I spent a half hour hanging on the wing after spinning the 170 around to get fuel back in the wing.
Today I deployed the P-Touch and have fully gone cloths pin. No regrets!
