That was OK but the last thing I moved from the old place was the wife's tanning bed and it;s still sitting inside while she decides what to do with it. Sell it I hope.

However, I have hit upon a solution: Not only will I permanently install racks and cabinets so that nothing else can be fit in it I think I'll have signs made for the sides, maybe:

Lucky's Septic Tank Service

Lu Lu's Strip Club

Wally's Biohazard Transport Service

or something much more disgusting as I think of it.

+1... Since the weather is so crappy, shouldn't we be discussing down-wind turns, dork landings, or something else that we've beaten into oblivion in the past?

That's too true.

It finally stopped raining here. Now, I am a prisoner in the house because of the mosquitoes and midges that are partying hardy, massive, sky blackening swarms of them.

Seeming I've not had to work this week, I've been studying the Skybench Baby Bowlus short kit and gathering the necessary ideas. It'll be my winter build, a blokes got to have a dedicated winter build project he can prioritise over other builds/repairs.

Well, I don't know about that, but Sean is a very versatile fellow, I have learned there probably is nothing he can't repair or turn his hand to.

edit; Darth my Darth, like your Journey tailplane mishap i was three days away from covering my Olympic III when I turned the fuse over and snagged the tailplane on an overhead beam and busted the rudder fin, duh...
Ever since then the glider has been nothing but highs and lows of unexpected adventure and misadventure, its like a glider on a mission to keep me awake and slightly unerved with what it is going to do next, never ever had a glider like it, quite bizzare, and one if not the best performing kit wooden glider I have flown. I am hoping that your new Journey isn't going the same way in its ability to surprise you. :eek

I have one of those. A 2-meter. Unused to the length, I broke wing tip ribs trying to turn around with the wing too close to a wall while still in the framing stage. While it was standing against the wall, uncovered, my cat decided it was a ladder. (Ribs of 1/16th balsa will not support a 20-pound cat applying lateral force.) I finally had so many bit and pieces needing repair, I junked it and just built another wing from scratch.
