    My A&P practical test was to drag an AA-1 (I can't remember if it was an A or a B). out of a ditch at the end of a local grass strip, get it flyable, ferry it to the school, gut it, repair everything and test fly it...all on a student permit. :confused: The nose gear had collapsed, so I spent a full day removing that and rigging up a temporary repair to fly it back to school...that was the worst day of the process...a hot/humid day in a nasty ditch.

    I always thought it was a pretty little plane. I met the designer, Jim Bede, once.

    The only real risky behavior I partake in is not something I enjoy. I work on the streets in North St. Louis.

    Now that is cool! I would have loved to have met Jim. And yes, a pretty plane. Mine was a real trip. Had a big engine, a 320, installed via STC by the guy I got it from. Which saved my sorry ass more than once. Every hour I flew, for the license and thereafter, was in that plane. My instructor really dug it, cause it handled so smooth. He would get especially enthusiastic wrestling us into unusual attitudes while I was under the hood ... something else to love was the sink. You could descend quite rapidly by just slowing up and holding the nose back. I learned how to sideslip it down, but never actually had to slip to lose altitude.

    I miss that little Grumman all the time. Do not miss annuals and tie down fees.

    Didn't know you could put an 0-320 in one. That would make it into a real airplane. I owned a PA-16 "Clipper" and begged the FAA to let me put an 0-320 in it (it had a cranky little 0-235 that had a hard time generating 100hp). Very common conversion...but not actually authorized. I should have done it anyway...every other Clipper I've seen had one in it.

    IIRC, we thought the little AA-1 was a nice little bird. Easy to fly, lots of visibility. I flew for years on a student permit, never did get my license. Didn't really need it, Dad was ATP rated in everything from Multi-engine Seaplane to Helicopters. If we went anywhere, it was on his ticket even though I was almost always doing the flying.

    It how some of them get their Ya Ya's. I try to stay away from too much exposure. My risk/reward model doesn't include dying. It's not uncommon for me to walk some places that are sketchy. But I have to say riding up to the top of a mountain and bombing down though the woods is just awesome.

    Downhill mountain biking. Strapping on pads and a full face helmet and rocketing down the local ski resort in the summer is just plain old fun.

    Most dangerous is probably driving through the roundabout down the road, though. Delightful mix of city and country drivers trying to figure out a double lane roundabout will get your blood pressure up, but I drive a 13 year old truck so I enjoy both the chaos and getting honked at for using it properly.

    I love my mother in law. I truly do. She’s an old hippy. If I disagree with any of her opinions about life after she’s had two glasses of wine the lectures that I receive are remarkable. I sit at the dinner table thinking.....”don’t do it. Don’t disagree....don’t offer another point of view”. Then I do it anyway. Kiss the next 40 minutes goodbye man.

    I like to fly low. I used to do 9 hr days counting waterfowl all under a hundred feet (waiver). I still like it. Like low enough to have to go around cows. Never flown through an arch (yet). Wires are scary.

    Traveling the local street that effectively runs through a Walmart parking lot where cars ignore stop signs and pull out in front of you or shoppers leave carts blocking traffic because they think it is part of the parking lot.

    Driving in rush hour on black ice may actually be less risky.
