Misfortune

I see all of the misfortune on this adventure, the result of inexperience. I know, because I have 72 years of "experience"! Most of you will learn, eventually. Carry on.:D

When you present yourself in a manner, not to be seen, guess what? They don't see you, as planned.

Alternator

Old Wings can be a good buy, if the alternator is good. About 14 volts, running, is good.
To replace an alternator on a Wing, is not for the faint of heart.

UnAmerican

It would be un-American to pull a drivers license at an arbitrary age. Mandatory annual retesting would pass muster.
