Glad you are still with us, Bruce!

 

I am sure there is a place reserved for you when the time comes, but we enjoy having you down here to entertain us all.

You may need to get Honey-Lamb to duct tape the CO alarm to your forehead each night to be sure!

 

Seriously, though. I got a nice Christmas gift this year (shown below). It is a solid state, light, small and portable CO alarm that can be put anywhere. I don’t know the exact price, since it was a gift, but it lists for $70 from:

https://radiantinstruments.com/geiger-co-carbon-monoxide-detector/. It has both a bright LED and buzzer alarm, and an anodized aluminum housing, so if you hang it in front of you on the panel, it should fill the bill.

 

Cheers,

Jay

We have a CO detector but the heat/ac guys said they don't always catch it as with our scenario.

Whoa, that's scary.  I'm glad you figured it out before you passed out.  

 

Don't forget about a CO detector for your planes as well.  It's the same problem with the same tragic result.

I flew yesterday in our TriQ 200 for all of .2 hrs!  Limiting factor was lack of fuel do to a flight in December.  Would like to fly it again today but we are getting a new heater/air conditioner in our house.  Mainly because a couple of days ago I woke up and went to the head.  After peeing I passed out and Honey Lamb came to see what happened.  She woke me and I was dizzy.  She then started to feel dizzy and I told her to open the door and shut off the heater!  I still didn’t feel like moving until the fresh air made it my way.  She started feeling better and we opened  4 other doors.  We called the heat and air condition man and tested our unit.  2 of the top chambers were cracked and letting carbon monoxide into our house!  I remember thinking before I passed our that I might be dying!  After the event I thought dying isn’t so bad!  You just go blank.  I also thought about what Heaven is going to be like and had a bit of regret still being here.

I told my son’s that I would be in paradise but they would be here sorting through all of our “stuff”.  He laughed at knowing it would be a daunting process!  OMGosh!

Great to hear Paul! 

You may have invented the first excercise/weight loss program for pilots!  Shoveling snow and flying!  I can imagine the Richard Simmons/Paul Fisher duo video!!
