8/20/2022 - N21263 (Logged Time: 1.50) KHWD KSCK KHWD Followed plane - flight following ------ Right before I called ground for flight following to Stockton, I heard another C172 asking for the same thing. I took off right after that plane and got handed off to norcal approach. I was basically at his 10 o clock most of the flight. When getting closer to Stockton, I decided to do a right 360 to get some separation (controller also had me climb 500 feet above the other plane). I landed in Stockton uneventfully. THe other plane kept doing touch and goes

8/13/2022 - N44PF (Logged Time: 0.30) KHWD KHWD Radio volume issues - unlocked door - return to land ------------ On a pretty warm day, I decided to head to Stockton with a piper I had been flying for about a year. About a month agp, when I flew the plane, there were radio volume issue (dimmed). But that day the volume was even dimmer to the point that after troubleshooting in multiple ways, I had to max out all the various volume channels. Troubleshooting took some time and probably prevented me from focusing properly on my flight prep. After getting clearance to taxi to 28R and completing my runup, I unfortunately did not lock the second latch on the door. Technically, the plane can fly fine with that lock unlatched, but the sound of the wind and the combination of the dimmed audio makes it really hard to communicate properly. I only realized that the door was unlatched right after lifting off. I knew that trying to lock the latch while in flight during a critical phase of the flight (take off) would be unsafe. So I asked tower to land back again and mentioned that I had an unlocked door. Another plane was in front of my in the pattern and had just received clearance to land. The controller granted me to land as number 2, but right after another controller (probably a supervisor) asked to plane in front of me to extend its downwind and granted me number 1 to land. The landing was fairly uneventful but due I decided to call it a day and go back to the parking instead of just locking the door and taking off again. One of the lesson learned, is to ensure that the whole pre-take off checklist is followed regardless of how distracted with other things I could be,

7/26/2022 - F-BXZX (Logged Time: 0.60) NTAA NTAA Southwest Moorea - Bad weather coming --------------- On a second tript to Tahiti, Franch Polynesia, I decided to go back to the flying club I had been to a couple years prior, UTA to do a flight on a Cessna. The weather was acceptable at the time, but the flight instructor (Laurent) noticed bad weather (rain) coming from the north which could potentially cut our route. Our flight plan was to head to northwest of Tahiti and fly around the island of Moorea. As we got closer to the island it became clear that we would not be able to go around the island due to bad weather. We flew south of it and did a few 360 and headed back to Faaa airport. Since the bad weather was still a little far out, we did a couple landings.

6/10/2022 - N44PF (Logged Time: 3.00) KHWD KIC KHWD BSR - Some mountain flying -------- I decided to fly to Big Sur before my destination (KIC). The wind by the coast was quite bumpty was more focused flying the plane than looking down for the bridge. I was not able to find it. I had planned to fly over the Big Sur VOR , but it was in the middle of mountains. I decided to head north were these were less steep and fly over. After landing at KIC I took a break in the pilot lounge. The flight back was unenventful

5/20/2022 - N328TA (Logged Time: 1.20) KHWD KHWD Flight Review Satis - turbulent ---------- The weather was really windy (gust 24) in Hayward. We did some maneuvers north of Dublin and some instrument practice with VOR following. Back to Hayward, the landings were quite challenging but I was able to land properly and safely twice while using my cross wind technics. Probably the most challenging in a long time

4/29/2022 - N1868H (Logged Time: 2.90) KHWD 3O8 KHWD Cruise 5500' 6500' . Enter MOA. Called Flight service ------------ I had wanted to do this flight for a long time as I had been driving Highway I5 on the way to LA these past few years. Harris Ranch is basically a highway stop with multiple amenities and hotel/restaurant. I had to fly high enough to clear 4500' mountain. As I got sent to the MOA controller, I heard a couple times jets practicing. After landing, I only took a 30mn break since I had to be back home mid afternoon. The flight back was fairly uneventful
