Well we are in the process of cleaning and painting our new (to us) house. So this will slow down my building and posting for a short while. The upside is that I will have a much bigger and better shop. It won't take too long. And I will work on the projects I am involved with as much as possible during this time.

Just a heads up top let people know everything is fine. Just a move going on!

I have several projects lined up. So stay tuned for some build logs. They are interesting and unusual models so I hope you all enjoy reading the threads and seeing the pictures!

In the past I did a good bit of building for others. I am thinking of doing that again.
With my situation with the MS there is one thing I have more then anything else... Time!
And building is good for keeping my mind and hands working. Not to mention it would help to make it possible for me to be more active in the hobby again.

Not sure how much interest there would be. But who knows?
I would not be looking to make big money at it. Basically finance some models and stuff is all.
I would be happy to hear anyone's thoughts.

Ok so that is not the real name of the town... But that is what the name means ! Starting on or before I will be moving to Wewoka Oklahoma.

Hopefully I can meet up with some fellow rcers there. Nice town with a ton of places to fly!
Will post pictures when I am there full time.

So lets hear it from anyone nearby!

Well in a few days(8th) I hit the dreaded half century mark.... How can this be? I mean I just finished High school in 76! That is yesterday right?
What really sucks is too broke to do anything and my lady has to work... So if you hear sobbing from your computer it is me drowning my sorrows on rcg....

I am wondering about finding a private mortgage lender for a piece of property my lady and I would like to buy.

We are not wanting or planning on paying for 30 years. More like a maximum of 10 years and likely paying it off in 5 years.
A lot of banks are not interested in loaning amounts as low as we need (under $40k)
The property is worth MUCH more then what we are buying it for. And yes there is room to fly there.....

I wonder what is the best way to find someone interested in loaning the money as an investment?

Hello all,

You know it has been a while since I have flown... But I know the addiction is still there.
I sign on rcg a little now and then for a read when I am able to get online. The other day I was outside and heard an interesting sound.. Followed the sound and what did I find? A formation of 3 SNJ/AT6s in flying by and turning final and lowering their landing gear.. I could feel my fingers wanting to move transmitter sticks while they went by... Now I know you cant fly full size planes like that! But it sure made me want to go fly!

I am in Tulsa right now spending time with my lady... And it made my day while she was at work!
I hope to find a buyer for my place in Indiana and buy a place on the Oklahoma Texas Arkansas border area then. And hopefully get back into flying and building again... And get back in touch with all my RCG friends here!
I hope everyone is doing well and has a great Christmas!

Hello all,

I know I have not been online in a while or contributed much for even longer.
contrary to rumors in the National Enquirer I have not died or been kidnapped by aliens! And no I am not being adopted by Angelina Jolie!

Ok I have been dealing with some issues both personal and health related lately.
As it seems to love to do my MS has been a royal pain in the nether regions...and has managed to come up with new ways to make life less then fun at times!

I am not wanting to leave the hobby and do hope I am able to get set up to be able to fly again or a regular basis again. Just not sure when.

I would still be happy to talk to any of my friends and would love to hook up with anyone near me to talk airplanes and such.

I have been lucky to have some great fun with one ezoner near here. And while things have got in the way of doing as much as I would have liked Nokie has made it possible for me to scare the wings off of an airplane a few times over the last few months!

I will keep this short and just say once again that I will not be running for public office in 2012 no matter what the press says!

Take care and hopefully talk soon!

I am in Weleetka Oklahoma for a while. My health problems continue. But I am being treated and tested.
Anyway in between proddings and pokings I am in Oklahoma for an extended visit.
I would love to meet up with any Ezoners in the area.

As many of you know I have been in poor health for a while. That has not changed. I am getting some treatments and I am on meds. So far it has not helped.

Well now the spit really hits the fan! We have had some strong storms in South West Indiana. And they are calling for more to come over the next couple of days/. And the town where my house is looks like it is going to flood. I have my home rented out to a nice couple who have taken wonderful care of it.
Well now the levi has failed. And the water is rising. They will likely loose everything they have in it. And I will likely lose the home. There is no flood insurance. It has not been this bad as long as anyone can remember. They are calling this "Historic" flooding.

I have the place rented out as my only income. So needless to say my mood is poor and my hobby will have to take a backseat to figuring out what to do if it does flood the house.

Take care all,

I wanted to up date those who might be interested or wondering.
I have not been on much lately and may not be on much for a little bit more.

I have been dealing with more health problems and undergoing a lot of tests. And have a lot more to go.

I have not felt up to doing much lately but I am not getting out of the hobby!

When I am a little stronger and feeling better I hope to get more active again.

Sorry for not responding to those who have pmed me. I will strive to do better on that!

To anyone who cares! am going to be offline for a few days. Not too long hopefully.
So after today I might be a little hard to reach for a few days.

Well Spring has sprung! And with Spring comes rain to Indiana. Now I don't mind a little rain now and then. Or even a Thunderstorm once in a while.

But the water in my drive was at one point over 3 feet deep! My lp tank started floating. a good 3/4 of my 1 acre lot is under water. and these pictures were taken the in the afternoon the day after the rain stopped.
My garage has several feet of water in it. I will have to see what all I have lost. But I had a lot of stuff in there.... oh well!

Well I got brave and flew my Slowstick in my backyard this morning. Got a total of about 10 minutes or so. It is funny the yard looks big untill you start flying a plane in it! Then it feels real small! I managed to stay out of all the trees. And did not break anything.
Any flight where the plane is not damaged is a good one in my book!
I would have flown longer but was getting tired and not feeling well. But had to try since there was no wind.
Next spring I will make sure the grass is cut short so I can rog and land easier.

A friend of mine who also has MS has this on her Blog. While I never have any remissions and can not work anymore this still describes what it is like.
Hopefully this will help people understand a little better what it is like for me and others who have MS.

Having MS means many things change, and a lot of them are invisible. Unlike having cancer or being hurt in an accident, most people do not understand even a little about MS and it's effects on us; and many of those who think they do know are actually misinformed. In the spirit of informing those who wish to understand...

These are the things that I would like you to understand about me before you judge me:

Please understand that being sick does not mean I'm no longer a human being. I have to spend most of my day in considerable pain and exhaustion and if you visit I probably don't seem like much fun to be with, but I'm still me stuck inside this body. I still worry about school, and work, and my family and friends, and most of the time I'd still like to hear you talk about yours too.

Please understand the difference between "happy" and "healthy". When you've got the flu you probably feel miserable with it for a week or two, but I've been sick for years. I can't be miserable all the time, in fact, I work hard at not being miserable. So if you're talking to me and I sound happy, it means I'm happy, that's all. It doesn't mean that I'...Continue Reading

Well I am moving. Just to a nearby town. The serious upside is the house sits on an acre of mostly clear land. And if I walk out to the street and to the right about 25 feet there is a HUGE field that is all open farmland.

I have already asked and it is ok for me to fly electrics there.
Starting the cleanup and move tomorrow. My internet activity will be limited till it is all done.
But it will be worth it in the end!
Oh the garage is heated too. In the picture you can see a white car in the drive. That will help give you an idea of the size of the lot. I have outlined the property lines too.
