Here is a link to where I fly.
This post has pictures of my main flying site. It is located about 15 miles North East of Vincennes on hwy 67 and about 40 miles South East of Terre Haute.

As you can see there is a lot of room here and it is a nice place to fly about anything you could want.
The people here are very rc friendly and there are no issues with flying here.

Yet I am the only one who ever flys here.
Surely there must be someone with in driving distance who would like to fly here?
It sucks flying alone!

I have been thinking a lot lately about this. I am not ready to stop flying completely. But I know that there will be a time when I can not fly anymore.

So what determines when it is time to stop? I know that if it is no longer fun then of course there is no point in doing something that is meant to be fun when it is not.

My desire to fly is a strong as it ever was. But my ability to fly has changed. Really fast planes are out of the question now. As are planes that are radicaly aerobatic.

It is ironic in a way that my choices in planes are starting to go backwards. Going to slower and easier to fly airplanes.
I have always enjoyed slowflyers but now they are becoming more of a requirement instead of a choice.

I am not up to flying more days then I am able to. So I want to make the most of the times I am feeling well enough. And that means planes that are easier to fly.
But I do not want to be at the point where all I can do is fly in circles and that is it.
So at what point to you hang it up?
Sorry for all the rambling.
