Hey IHAVA..., here's a couple of shots from the archive for you of the OLY II SX. Getting there! Oh yes, I found your thread and read every post in it! Great information, thanks for sharing it.

Cheers,

Rob
Napa red? Yep, got some of that around here, and have been known to enjoy "some" too

Man, she's lookin SA WEET Rob, nice photo's and great work... Let me know when she complete ( and make sure to post more photo's along the way)... It's a long winter here in Montana! When she's done maybe we can get together for some beautiful Napa valley soaring? Last time I was in Callistoga, (last year) I was bummed that the glider park was closed and abandon??? I was really looking forward to do some full scale soaring..

Thanks for the kind compliments! This is my first Skybench kit and I'm enjoying the build very much. I'll keep the photos coming as the project moves forwards!

You are on for some soaring here anytime that you feel like it. It's a great place to fly - I've got some special places to fly that are in the middle of vineyards and the views are quite spectacular, that is if you like lots of grapevines and mountains!? Seriously, if you ever find yourself heading this way please let me know... I know where to find a little vino and it's always great to enjoy a glass or two with fellow fliers!

I moved here in 1998, and I think the gliderport closed at about that time. I didn't know there was one here until I had relocated, and when I found out that it was no longer in operation I was bummed!! Soaring over the Napa Valley would have been beautiful.

Thanks again, more to come...

Rob

Woody,

Just forward the points to Darth, he'll handle it from there. I got a really nice toaster for the wife last month. Tomorrow night I think I'll have a few, go down to LTUP and see if I can earn enough for a new transmitter.




Rob, looks awesome. I promise to get moving this month on something actually thread-worthy.


Wish you guys lived close to here. I could hook you up on FS soaring just about anytime. In fact the Pawnee and G-103 is coming over my house right now as I type.

I wouldn't go that far Woody. Yeah, I have some amazing stuff around me but there is plenty of rain that falls too. I won't send the thread off in a bad direction but our NYE was interrupted by some news so bad that my wife is still walking around in a daze and sick to her stomach. Nobody has a perfect life. I for one dream about what Montana might be like. If it wasn't for the extreme cold I could do that state in a heartbeat.

Sorry bout the "news'' ... I know what you mean about the life part though... I have a friend( wha? I got one) I like to quote..." It's not always greener on the other side, but it's sure damn fun climing the fence!" Bring the wife to Montana in the summer? Yellowstone National Park right down the road and we can all go float the Madison River for some world class fly fishing. Oh Yeah, please bring the Pawnee and G-103 when you come... we'll switch off ... The PLANES MAN, SWITCH PLANES... ( not ... aw, nevermind)....

Ahhh... memories... Now, the only thing that has me a bit miffed is the fact that Bobby Legue and HIGHSTARTER were mentioned in the same post. Just kidding about the miffed part, of course...

I was fortunate to meet Bobby at SWC the year he passed away. We visited one evening and had a b&c together... talked about musician friends and surprizingly, some of them were mutual... and we talked about models of course. What a gentleman. It's one of those times when you wish you'd lived closer to someone, and met them earlier in life because you know it would have been an epic friendship... Of course, there are many that frequent this thread that foster similar thoughts... but don'e let that go to your heads...

OK... enough waxing philosophic... Now... back to being the curmudgeon I've turned into in my old age...

With the new year I am freed of an old post that, though fun and rewarding, I felt was time to let go. No more newsletter for me; I can now RELAX. I'm going to start back up on working in my website and blog. I got some good stuff to, erm, blog about.
