This. Quite a few of us in the club have gotten punctures from riding on chip seal. We now avoid it at all costs.

We literally cannot hire and train enough frontline workers to meet current customer demand. It’s the same thing there. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from there it probably gets political quickly. But those are the facts.
@ Jetlink « Wed 6:01:04 pm »
So we are barely keeping our heads above water with the same issues.

If we ever get together again I can expound on chip seals - JT wouldn’t miss it lol
@ Raildudes dad « Wed 4:07:59 pm »
Chip seal depends a lot on the aggregate. Natural stone is round stone, slag or traprock is angular crushed. A number of agencies are fog sealing the chip seal which takes the curse off the sharp edges. A good chip seal does not have any loose stone or dust. Kent County requires their aggregate to be double washed.

Murder on your tires though.

Never would have thought of that.

Not really an issue out here. We don’t have any.

@ ~Z~ « Wed 10:19:03 am »
the only real problem I have with the chip seal is how the height of the manhole covers are related to the height of the road. When they do these projects, sometimes the manhole covers are now too low, or too high compared to the road surface. I’m dodging manhole covers are Clyde Park and Burlingame now due to it.

It was 2 days old yesterday. In the wheel tracks was already fine. Just don’t want to stray out of them.
@ Jetlink « Wed 8:58:05 am »
But I do avoid when fresh.
@ Jetlink « Wed 8:57:48 am »
It isn’t bad to ride on after a week or two. It’s just the interim that sucks.

most of the roads nearby my home got chip sealed in the past 2 months.

2:02 does qualify as 2+ hours :)

I detoured substantially on the way home to avoid that 1 mile of tar and chip again.

Includes 2 miles of gravel and 1 mile of fresh chip-seal-coat.

Yes. PC-12 is a great aircraft but fairly advanced for a trainer. Could be done though. Imagine it would be pricey. I learned and got my private ticket in a Cessna 150 to start. Then flew a PA 28 and a CE 172.

Good strategy. Glad you fixed it.
