Ceiling And Visibility OKay


CAVOK is an acronym used in aviation weather reporting to denote a period where there are no clouds for 6 miles or below 5000′ above ground.

When I was learning to fly, CAVOK meant a day with clear visibility and a beautiful flight wherever I ended up. This grew in to a metaphor on the life I wanted to lead.  You see, blue skies and sunshine are always there, it’s just that sometimes they’re above the clouds. It’s always sunny above the clouds.

Thanks for reading!

Just to fill you in a bit.. has been a pet project since the year 2000. Much has changed since the near-ending of the world and much will change as we move toward the next end-of-the-world. Let’s find a way to make it fun, shall we?

I’m a computer guy by trade, a world traveller, a maker, a gentleman, and a repatriator of wayward insects.

After years of toiling in the northern climes, I’ve walked away to pursue a full-time career as a maker of wonderful things.

This blog may eventually contain the archives of the original (a beastly creation built in archaic ASP with content pulled from an access database), and the remnants of the second incarnation of this site among other things.  It’s mostly a personal blog, but there’ll likely be reference to my business activities along the way too..

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading, and to than all of those who have encouraged me to keep posting over the years.  I hope the new incarnation of cavok (when it arrives) will provide you with as much joy as it has given me to create the content!


Thanks for sticking with me!
