    Good lesson yesterday. Weird weather, though. Thermals were hitting pretty early, which was unusual. The climb out from the runway was REALLY slow and we got bounced around a little.

    Went and did some more IFR practice, this time doing slow-flight and stalls under the hood. Pretty freaky stalling it with no visual references other than the instruments. First one wasn't great but not bad either.

    Then did some steep turns, which I hadn't done in forever. First ones were horrible, but we worked through it and by the end I was doing them really well. The one really good one, as I came back around on the 360 and leveled out, I hit big turbulence...ran in to my own wake! Weird.

    More VOR navigation work after that, then back to ABQ.

    No flight this week CFI is sick, so couldn't go up today.

    They had another instructor there with his student, but he wouldn't be done in time for my scheduling.

    This past Tuesday's lesson. Stayed at KABQ in the pattern and got 10 landings in. All pretty good. I should be soloing again next week.

    Finally got my full solo done this past Monday.

    Taking off from ABQ, got to fly between some balloons, a first for me. Not real close to them, obviously, but have to be aware of their locations.

    Did 3 touch and go's at Double Eagle, then a full-stop to let my instructor out. And off I went.

    First landing was pretty good. When taxiing back I reached over to the passenger seat for my water and noticed I never locked his door!! Oops! The damn then popped open on landing, so that was fun.

    Second landing was really good, best of the day.

    Third was a little sketchy, drifted left at the very end of the landing and I had flashbacks to the last solo where I went off the runway! But I recovered it perfectly and everything was fine.

    So that was that...officially solo'd. Picked up my CFI and headed back to ABQ. Unfortunately my GoPro ran out of battery as we took off from Double Eagle, so that's the end of the videos.d
