So I finally bothered to load all my tracklogs onto Leonardo, not just the big flights. And I've been doing a lot of calculating, looking at track logs and adding up hours and flight numbers and miles per year, and I've come to some interesting discoveries, for anyone who cares:
1) I thought I had way more hours on my Mentor 2 as I have on my Tala, but they're about the same (the Tala had 29 hours before it got to me). Just seems like the Mentor has more hours because it is sun-faded. Crazy that it only has about 60 hours on it, it looks like it has 150.
2) I've been getting slightly fewer flights each year. But apart from 2014, when I re-discovered dating, I've still been either getting in a decent amount of miles or a decent amount of hours.
3) I get SIGNIFICANTLY more sledders or extended sledders than I get big flights. I only remember the big flights, though, so I remember myself as a better pilot than I actually am.
4) My best year of flying so far was 2013, and I laid down twice the amount of miles that year than any other year. I only got 50% more flights in that year than this year, but twice the miles. And that's mostly because in that year, Sean was willing to retrieve me any time because he had no other obligations and he was hoping someone in the group was going to break the record (he has since learned that retrieving me isn't something that's in his best interest to do just any time, heehee). So knowing you have a retrieve definitely makes you go farther.
