Upside down

If I had to do it all over again -- and I'm kind of thinking I will some day -- I'd probably build an RV-9. The "9" didn't exist when I ordered the "7," which is aerobatic capable and all that. Great, but I'm unlikely to do much aerobatics, what with the possibility of aggravating the Meniere's Disease, which makes you dizzy.

Heck, just watching this video of Twin Citian Alex Peterson makes me all nauseous.


  1. Bob,if you have Meniere's Disease, have you looked at your diet and lifestyle? Surprisingly, a good healthy diet can help over time.

  2. It's still not well known what causes Meniere's but, yes, it's possible high sodium intake is one. I'm on a low-salt diet. Other than that, exercise blah blah blah. Yep. Done it. Also had a shunt put in.

    I'm still not going to be going inverted. It's under control, but my upside down days are over.
