… I dropped my canopy off at Alpha-Zulu Composites in Kingman, Arizona today for a restoration project and hope to have it back next week. Paul Gaines owns and operates the business and you can check his operation out at: https://www.
Preparing for a trip like this requires a little more preparation than just a couple of months ago … roll of paper towels, bottle of 91% alcohol, 3 pair purple nitrile gloves, and a few other items. I have found that saturating a paper towel with alcohol is a good tool to fill up with gas … insert the card into the payment slot and pull out and wipe down with the dripping paper towel, punch the numbers in and gas preference with your finger inside the towel and handle the fueling line with the same saturated towel. Dispose of the towel in the trash and then wipe the hands with another saturated paper towel … the 91% stuff is good. I leave the pump cleaner and likely virus/bug free for the next person … my hands smell a little boozy, but that is okay.
It is good to see that Arizona considers golf an essential activity … easy to keep social separation … at least on the course. Flying alone, boating alone and shooting wildlife are great solo activities where you do not come into close contact with others too. I’ll probably never shake hands again … I’ll miss that.
Stay safe and be well … enjoy the day and life … now is all we have.
