Re: Planning a 2019 US tour. Anyone up for a visitor?

Charlie, I was thinking that Mississippi would be a good stop. My nephew lives there and I haven’t seen him in decades!

I want to say that he is down in Pascagoula or Lucedale.

I will look you up this coming summer! Thanks!

Re: Planning a 2019 US tour. Anyone up for a visitor?

Thomas, I won't be off that soon. School lets out on June 13 and I need to do some things around here before I shove off. Thinking about heading west after Oshkosh... maybe bugging out of there on Thursday of the show week? What does that weekend look like for you? Colorado or Indy could be right al...

I know you are an old salt at that. I took my airplane up to 18,000 feet for the first time yesterday. I wanted to ...

Re: Drilling stainless firewall *HELP*

Like Mike said, speed and feed are both the key. You need to find that sweet spot. Boelube works great, but also try Parpolive gold dishwashing liquid as a lubricant. A friend of mine who is a plumber taught me that trick. Plumbers drill stainless steel sinks all the time. Using a unibit works very ...

Yes, that would be great! What airport so you keep your plane at? I want to do some research.

Thanks!

Planning a 2019 US tour. Anyone up for a visitor?

Hey All, I have been busy flying this contraption and not posting much. In 3.5 years, I am at 1,000 hours on the Hobbs, been to OSH 4 times and Alaska once. I got my instrument rating in it and it is running strong! This year I am thinking about doing a circumnavigation of the contiguous US. I have ...

Re: RV Mini Series by Restless Crow Studios

Wade,

Another superb job!

Maybe I will catch you sometime this August? As you may know, I’m in Alaska now making my way back home via Oshkosh.

Keep in touch!

Nice!

I will bring something from along my route home from Alaska. So far nothing has been able to last longer than 24 hours from time of purchase!

I will work on my willpower!

We might arrive on Saturday!?!

Re: Quick build kits

Quite simply, if you have got the lead then do it. OTOH, I wasn't sure of where the QB left off and the builder picked up, so I went SB... in addition to the fact that the delta in cost would pay for some big time radios!

Needless to say, I went SB.

Either way, you can't go wrong.
