Thanks G, how ya been man? been a while!

 A long while.....we all kind of left for a long time.....

I got married, moved to Utah, still doing fires but also run another company now doing flights to Catalina and back...... just bought a sailboat.....and trying to retire and live on a boat in 5 years.....

Life is good..... sailing, flying, as yours will be again soon...

Have discovered that sailing as many similarities to flying..... And also the three "F" rule... if it Flies, Floats or F#cks, one is better off renting.....

psych exam was today and lasted a couple of hours and was about what one would expect for such an examination given the circumstances. childhood to present and where alcohol played into it all before, during, and after i quit drinking. In short, exam went well and the next item up for bid is my blood work next week then the following Monday my 1st class exam

update:
Have the psychiatrist appointment scheduled for mid April and then my 1st class exam scheduled for the beginning of May. When I went the other day for the initial visit with my AME I had mentioned that I was currently taking Benadryl once a day for allergies to which he suggested that I quit taking that and go with Claritin because of the side effects due to the fact that I'm in the HIMS program and this would be frowned upon as Benadryl isn't an FAA approved medication and even though I don't have my medical back just yet and am not flying, it's best to not even go there and avoid any meds that may be of concern. I have also come down with a cough/cold as well and have to avoid any cough medications that may contain alcohol, this one is pretty much a no brainer but figured I might as well put it out there if anyone was wondering.

The 8th part of my research consists of exploring prices on different routes, such as JFK-SFO, JFK-LAX, JFK-SEA, SEA-MIA, LAX-ANC. I tried to compare all information which I found out to calculate the real prices.

HA! Glad to hear!

We thought about that as well. But we figured it would be that much more funny for people who DO get the reference and love the movie ;)

Made my day.  That is all.

I wonder how many people don't get the reference though.

Am I tracking this right? It's the medical you can't get after a DUI?
Is there something else involved other than just drinking?

So you have the license but you can't get the medical....
Neuropsychological evaluation??

to answer this one specifically - yes. when you get 1 dui (per their definition, not the states), they slap you on the hand and say don't do it again. if you get #2 they revoke your medical. your license you possess is yours unless they ask for that too but the only catch is that it's not valid without a current medical (cfr 61.23(a)) so that's where they get you.

every pilot that has had their medical revoked for dui's and wants to get their medical back must go through this. it's not as involved for a private/3rd class medical but when 2nd or 1st is involved it gets more in depth and costly. I go to a meeting next week for the first time that's outpatient to meet the aftercare requirement. some people have had to go to rehab, in my case i was fortunate enough to just put it down and not go back to it. in those cases all medical history files related to rehab must be made available to the ame/ims/hims physician.

the neurophych eval sucked balls. that cost $1995 and was an all day brain mashing marathon. they're basically checking to make sure you didn't pickle your brain or cause any permanent brain damage.
