More on the fsx simpit

leave a comment »

ok I’m still working on my simpit and fsx.  For AC I’ve invested in the dhc-2 beaver, dhc-6 twin otter, c-130,c-17,c-27 and c5 plus others like the uh1, hh60.  I purchased a used VRInsight ProPit but that might have been a mistake.  I got it used, but the problem seems is there isn’t much support for adding different AC to it.  It come ready to work with three I know of for max the c172,c-182 and the mooney none of witch I plan on flying much except for the time in the book for getting my if r training iirc.  I made an order for another USB I/O card and switches for it.  The PhDs plug and play kit I got off ebay controls 20 switches and if I use the ones it came with will be 5 ea push button, toggle rocker and push button momentarily.  I ordered what seemed like a ton of switches I expected to use toggle on,off,on, and on, off with covers I think I ordered some momentarily on push buttons and one other switch as I recal.  The new ISO card is better from my understanding and will control up to 32 switches

On another note it’s time to get ready for sass world championship End of Trail match coming up next month.  I still need to reload some 38-55 for plainsman, I should have enought 38wcf for a warmup and main match but I’m taking the 45s along in case.  I figure for just the three matches warmup, main and plainsman I’ll nee the 28-55 handi rifle, two 73s one in 38 WCF and the other in 45 colt for backup I’ll need my roa for plainsman and my USFA SAAs for main match and Ruger Bisley Vaquero 45colt for bu.  next is the scatter guns, I’m taking my Remington spr 220 for plainsman and my 87 copy for main and ten for backup.  Then ammo for all.  Leather will be the same as my Kirtpatrick Long Hunter 09 holsters fit any of main match revolvers I have one set in black and another in russet.  The latter are new all are strong side holsters.  I have a couple other thing to work out also.  My boot chap or boats iirc need enlarging or remaking to fit me.  My chinks will be tight but I might need a few extension straps made to get them to work.  If everything goes right I’ll be dressed differently each day.  Plainsman will be pigskin pants and buckskin shirt, for warmup will be a shirt and pants, on main match day one will be one of these chaps, chinks or botas(boot chaps) a vest of one of two right now, one day will be in uniform so I’ll have to work hard to have the required items.  Unfortunately since my diabetes my feet require special boots and I’ll be wearing them other wise I would be bringing my earth walkers and that would give me a choice in footware.  But this year I’ll be wearing the same lace ups everyday.  Since I can’t move well I try to do two things dress differently every day and try to shoot clean.
I’ve got some money coming and plan on getting a SxS utv and enclosed trailer to carry everything in plus for the weekend events I plan on throwing a cot in it and using it for camping.  I’ll need a couple of things to make it homely for the weekend.  But if it gets me out the so much the better.
Till next time.

The last day before….

Well after a late night loading software on the laptop I got bed and fell asleep around 5 am. I still having trouble with the network showing drives and stuff. Need access to load LR3 catalog so I can print out a photo for someone and burning a cd for someone else.

I got a note from the VA that I have an appointment on Tuesday the 21. Well that will not work since I have Wild Bunch RO training at that time. Called prosthetics and told them I was in town today could they fit me in. I was told to come on down. So I went in to order new shoes and inserts.

Went to put the gun cart together for the scooter and about every third piece was missing. I Couldn’t. Find one of the brackets that go between the cart and the scooter. Also, the box for the cart was seen. I was going to redesign to setup but doubt I have time to do it today. Looks like I will be using my Off The Wall cart and walking. Which might be better anyway because the cart in acting up my tripping something and takes forever to get anywhere.

Went by the ranch and it appears everything is ready.

Spoke with Gunther Cartright for a spell and the head west. Stop by a friends for salad and pizza. The headed further west to Wally world boy has it changed since Sam passed. Every year seams to get worst and worst. The shelves were bare and the isle around the open freezers was packed with pallets. No one was filling the shelves. Filled the buggy with what they had and headed home to put the stuff away and get things ready for a 6 am wake up and on the road by 7 to arrive by 8 for 9 am registration and safety brief. Good nite ya
