No Income, No Flying

The Bonanza is laid up in my hangar, on a battery minder, since I don't know when I will fly it next.  That's because in October I was informed that the company I worked for no longer needed my services after Halloween.  That's not actually quite true, they needed my services, and wanted my services, but had to cut somewhere and I was it.  Mandated by the board of directors.

At first it looked like I might find a new job pretty quickly - within a couple of weeks I had three interviews lined up.  But for various reasons, none of them panned out.  So now, with true unemployment ahead, it's budget cutting time in our household as well.  And 100LL Avgas is an obvious target.

Looks like I won't be flying unless acting as an instructor.

Very sorry to read this. I'm not sure if it will provide comfort or not, but I lived this scenario seven years ago. In the end, it all worked out and my family and I embarked on a new adventure in a new geography. Regardless, I sympathize: the feeling of disconnectedness that came with the whole experience still feels fresh. Best wishes for a new gig.
