The flying career of a wandering private pilot

After gaining a PPL in 2005, I decided that it must be possible to use it for more than the occasional local cup of tea. So, with very little experience, and a similar amount of guidance, I set off to see if it could be done. It soon became clear that a number of other private pilots had the same ideas, although making up a tiny fraction of the overall pilot population. What was missing was shared information on their experiences, the tips and tricks that ease this kind of endeavour. Hence, this website; to chronicle my adventures, and hopefully provide helpful information and advice to those wishing to do the same thing.
