I think it's easy to say... it's a labour of love.

Got caught up on some updates to keep from losing my mind...  I've been firing the sim up in stages since the upgrades and last night I fired up the MIP screens (these are the 18" screens that I bought and tested for fit and function before installing them in MIP, after buying two other screens that didn't fit).

Once my systems PC booted up it was apparent that my Captains side monitor was not working.  Ended up the Display card is dead (somehow).  I had to pull both screens to swap parts to figure it out.  Couldn't find the card online so ended up buying another monitor on ebay for $50.  Now I have five 19 inch screen, four 17 inch screen, and a partially broken 18" screensitting around not being used.  Should get the new in the mail tomorrow.

Anyway  here are the updates:

MAP AND CHART LIGHTS INSTALLED

Today I fired up the external visuals. First time in a long time. It gave me a chance to fine tune it a bit as I had bumped the projectors a bit during the rebuild.

Very nice setup there! Love the visuals.

That is an amazing sim. Maybe  after you report to JBLM you let me come and drool over it! :o

Thanks for the kind words, James.  Don't worry you'll have plenty of time to drool over it as you help me put it back together! ;D

Seriously, nothing I like better than having someone close by to fly with.

Today I fired up the Pokeys card and relays.  Now I have interior lights and stick shakers!

When I come over to help reassembled your sim, you might need to have some very absorbent towels at the ready for all the drooling!!!!LOL :cheers:

Sim is looking great Warren, excellent work.
Hope you are well!

Two days since I watched my whole sim get packed up into a 1m x 2m x 3m crate and get hauled off.  I did OK yesterday but today I find myself going into the basement and staring at an empty room.  I've checked CB.com 27 times today for pictures of a 737 cockpit and I'm currently casting youtube videos of 737s to the 32" TV left in the empty living room.  Two months before I can expect the crate with my sim to be delivered with the rest of my 15 crates of household goods in our new home that I haven't found yet on the opposite side of another continent.  No tools left; no parts laying around to play with; no soldering iron; the movers even took all my booze and drank all my beer.  Today I went out on my balcony for the first time in three and half years and watched a 737 fly over on final to EDDS.  I'm waiting for the girls to get tired an nod off then I think I am going to dig out my gamepad and fire up the NGX on my laptop.

Hey Warren,

PCS'ing always was a fun and yet, sad thing too go through. You look forward too moving onto new things and places, but you see everything you've known for years just dismantled. It has been a while for me, but the return to CONUS from EUCOM was not too bad really...

Are you getting 30 days to have a vacation...opps, I mean out process...lol? That was the best part if you ask me; spending a month going to each checklist location and stopping for food, beer, and fun along the way. Hopefully, that is still the case today; the fact that you get too ease out of your current location.

As for your B737 addiction, have you tried Xplane app for iPad yet? It's always fun and can be done anywhere. Plus, you could always research your flight plan for your return flight and print out charts, as well as aircraft specs, and then take them onboard with you. You might get looked at weirdly, but you never know, you might get asked up too the flight deck (long shot on that one though).

Best Regards,

John

PCSing is still all the fun you remember, John

I'm taking some leave enroute to JBLM in Washington.  Outprocessing is fairly quick when you're an E9.  Amazing how much more streamlined the process is when they know they can't mess with you.

I had Xplane on my tablet but the kids made me uninstall it when I fired it up after takeoff on our last vacation flight together.  Not sure what their problem is.  I'll have to install it again

Warren,

When your 737 lands at JBLM and you're ready to re-assemble, give me a shout.. I'll be happy to come on down and help.

Do you know yet if you're on-base or off-base housing?

Thanks Ray.  I'm looking off-post.  Right now everything points to Dupont based on what I'm seeing online for availability, convenience, cost and size.

Warren, if you find yourself needing a set of extra hands reassembling your sim, give me a shout! It would be great to meet you and see your project!  Maybe I might even steal a few ideas from you for when i get my shell and mount the overhead into it!

You bet James!  We'll make it a sim assembling party!
