The wind quit for a day last week, so I decided to fly up to Beatty.  Unfolded the wings and topped the tanks.  Calm when I left, but it got bumpy about a half hour out.  Really rough over the desert.  I wasn't having fun anymore, so I turned around and went home.

Back on the ground I noticed that the left tank was still completely full and the right one was half empty.  I didn't notice during the flight because I knew the tanks were all full, and the sight gauges are hard to read in the bright sunlight.  Even harder to read without bright sunlight.

Anyhow this was unusual because the left tank normally feeds much faster than the right. I first thought the filter was clogged, but it turned out to be the fuel line. It was crimped between the wing and the fuselage. Not at all obvious, took me a while to figure it out even looking right at it.

So I was really lucky. If I hadn't turned around I almost certainly would have had a forced landing when the right tank went dry. In fact I felt so lucky that I immediately went over to my local casino and put $100 in the slot machines. Lost every penny. Bottom line, I learned two important lessons that day:

1. Check the fuel lines before takeoff.

2. Don't gamble.

To be honest, I do not like casinos. Just because so many of them have already fooled me, I know it and have heard it more than once. So be sure to think about how to solve this problem without any difficulties and problems, and solve it very easily, you can just bet on sports. For example, I do them now without problems and it really helps me to develop. I really hope that I can really help now, my friends just told me that I can download 1XBET apk free https://playmarket.store/detail/1xbet.app and then there will be no problems to find applications. I have already downloaded and started getting good money. I recommend everyone to do the same. Good luck!
