JT,

Had a crazy afternoon, spent five hours at the Airport working on Gate codes and the Fly In Breakfast tomorrow morning. Then my family wanted to go to Gainesville for dinner afterwards. Didn't get back in till after 9:00 and then mneeded a shower bad, so just now ready to set down and relax. But I am going to watch a NetFlix with my wife and go to bed. So I can get up at 6:00 tomorrow morning and spend five more hours on the Airport ramp directing airplanes.......But that is actually fun.

Roger

Do you have the new "Cloudbusters Gate Code" ?

Last night I started a warbird session and flew the B-25 around the Rochester- Niagara Falls area. The B-25 is so fun to fly, if you get it trimmed right on a long final, it also lands very easily as well.

I then flew the scout around Cascade Locks State Airport on the Columbia River in Oregon. Lots of interesting mountains and good scenery.

Can you believe I have nearly 200 hours in my flight simulator logbook? That is a lot of time vegging out in front of a computer pretending to fly.

Gators and Bama at 8:00 so I won't be on tonight.......unless it gets real ugly, real fast for the Gators. Then I'll need to come on and relieve some stress.

The first Fly In Breakfast in quite some time was a success. We had around 35 planes fly in and lots of drivers. Beautiful weather, clear skies and winds were 360/9 gusting to 15 but everyone handled the slight crosswind with no problems. Had an interesting plane show up. (Does anyone know what this is?)


As an olde time EAA'er I'll tell you that I have always liked this design but it is uncommon. That is the only hint you will get.


Ed will probably know.

My guess is either a Jodel or an Emeraude? I don't know how to spell it, sorry if it is misspelled. Looks like one of those. Am I right?

I am disappointed, yesterday was out last airport breakfast and I missed it, I thought it was this following weekend but I was wrong. Oops.

I should be on as well.

Looks like a sporty little homebuilt, have you thought about your Bearhawk? That would be an awesome plane.

I had to enclose my one car garage to become my Land Surveying Office.......Now I am going to add a carport to cover my cars......then a new shed to put wood working tools in......then Well you see it takes a lot of money and time just to get to the point of having money and time to build an airplane.


Some day maybe.

Just build one BIG shed/garage/hanger. That is what we did, my mom got tired of all our tools and old cars in her garage so we built our own shop in the back.

I know how it is though, one thing after another, they wouldn't call it life otherwise.
