I am. Still very weak in the surgery area tho. Lots of damage was done due to injury and the insurance company dicking me arou d for so long and my core is very weak. Rebuilding what was lost for 3.5 years is proving to be hard and slow and painful lol. But I think the pelvis is stable now.

Hmmmm... figure out the cost of these trips, then calculate the planes you could be buying instead. That's what I do. We have a bunch of events here in Florida and south Georgia that we can get to in under 5 hours and stay on-the-cheap. FoG, FX3D, a few Huckfests in Deland and Venice, our own Dick Coles, our own Suncoast Electric Fly-In (SEFI), a few FFAA get-togethers, Huck-O-Ween at the 3D Farm in Iron City is one I'd like to get to this year...

Nall is Mecca, I know, but it's hard to qualify when you are already spending thousands each year on the latest and greatest, and have year-round events in your back yard to go to.

And the Finish are going why are you complaining of a light sprinkle...

My missus's step mom sent a pic of what she woke up to where the snow had blocked them in and was up and over the roof (bungalow)

The wife doesn't take the cost of gas out of the hobby budget
I camp at the events to keep the costs down as well.
For me, I have the most fun at the events meeting all the people I talk with on here. The social aspect of the hobby is just as fun as flying for me. I have a good buddy coming down to Nashville this weekend to do some custom vinyl on his new 100cc, i had done business with him before on rcg but the friendship wouldn't be what it is today if we hadn't met at an event. We don't have a big 3d crowd here so the events are the only time I get to see any talent so it's absolutely worth it. The raffles, event discounts, and swapping is the cheapest way to get awesome 3d planes. You can't find better deals on 3d planes than at the 3d events! I rarely buy new planes these days. Good deals and no shipping makes the gas completely worth it for me. While 6 events is highly unlikely for me, I will for sure be at 3.

Yeah, I agree. SEFF and Nall are a must-attend for us all. But it is a bit different for us. I went to the FFAA get-together in November and there were 60 pilots there and maybe 150-plus planes, for a one day event that they scheduled two weeks in advance. All-out 3D and 90% giant scale... well one giant P-47 warbird that flew twice that was fun to watch too.
