Found some cool crap in the wild yesterday. Two different thrift stores.

The TI was in nice shape, but there were no cables and they wanted $40 for it. Passed on that one.

 

The sr-11, I bought... $5 was a good deal. Need a power adapter for it now.

 

 

I NEVER find TI stuff out here in hick-town USA. Truly cool day. :D

Funny how it's named after a slide rule. Airline pilots once carried large bags with all sorts of charts and heavy manuals inside. Now everything they need to carry is conveniently stored on the iPad. My company calls the iPad and associated software, ELECTRONIC FLIGHT BAG. Reminds me of the Beverly Hillbillies referring to their swimming pool as the CEMENT POND.

I sure don't miss doing those paper Jepp updates.
