Hang in there J...maybe it's because your wife needs you right now...but your turn will come.

Default Re: Some updates.

Finally all moved out of Chilliwack, thankfully we had an entire month to move, with all that happened March no way we would have been able to do it all on a single day.

Have to take a driving airport written test Monday, not prepared for it as well I haven't had a single day in over a month where I wasn't working, or commuting to/from Chilliwack moving things or going to visit hospital when wife was there, but I will spend tomorrow studying. If it were just a multiple choice test, I wouldn't be so worried, but it also included a map of the airport aprons/taxiway's etc that we have to memorize and achieve a perfect score on, miss 1 and you fail.

I've never been good at memorizing things like this, so quite worried about it.

Upside in May I go to evenings and mid-day so no more getting up at 2am..lol

Wife is doing better, but still has a lot of ups and downs and would be nice if she could see a doctor sooner, but May 19 seems to be the earliest she can get in at the moment.

Easier said than done but try and forget you don't like tests and just do your best. Try and learn it as though you are actually driving the routes. Good to hear you've got everything done with the old place. Onwards and Upwards and any move forward for your wife even if it's two steps forward and one back is positive. She'll get there. All the best with the studying and test and don't forget to look after you as well.

I second that. From experience that's easily forgotten.

When I was trying to.learn the layout of my local airport (admittedly much smaller) I took an image from Google Earth. Printed it out and practiced labelling it.

That is what I used for studying. A map layout.

I missed 2 so failed. I got the answers just the wrong box on the map.

Need 100% to pass.

Ach, nuts! That must be even more annoying - knowing you knew the answers, but marking it up wrong on the map. Still, as Dorothy and JG say, that should give you more confidence for Round 2 next week
