hop to Canada for lunch ...Vlad
It was a nice ride. OAT was all right. People in TX
seen worse. Preheat in several sessions. Ignite the burner, remove a
cover and warm yourself in the car. During the warming make two
calls to border patrol on both sides of the fence. Clear to go
PASSED! I BEAT THE CANCER! 5 years out and it's official!

To all of my VAF family, and various fellow flyers
lurking here, who have been on this journey with me I just couldn't
wait to post it here.
How do I thank folks like Doug and his family, the Avery's, Mike
Lauritsen, Rosie and Tuppergal and JimmyB and his bride, and all my
RV travel gang, and so so many more that I can't possibly list you
You kept me going in the dark times and the good, and I can never
repay that in full.
I now have a new life, a fresh start with a wonderful lady, who
literally is my life, and has given up so much to care for me, and
to love me, and to follow me down here to Paradise here in Kiawah
Island, SC area.

Started talking about my build over the RV-9 area,
but figured it would be better to give updates on the build over
Just completed our first sub assembly, the vertical stab. We've
already prepped all of the internal parts for the HS and the rudder,
so diving into assembling them soon. Should have them completed
within the next week or so.
It's nice to have a actual stopping point for one evening... LOL

Fresh Out of Stein's Shop
"Very nice RV8 using Garmin G3X EFIS. Also of note
is that this panel is using Robert Paisley’s EFII and Buss Manager
system as well as Vertical Power. Makes for a very nice and clean
install into a standard non-modified RV8 panel."
So this is TX.... Rob Ray
This week we started our first annual on our RV10.
We had inspected the wheels and brakes and decided to replace the
tires and brake pads and service wheel bearings all in one shot
after initial inspection. During the build we had the RV10 up on the
stands numerous times with these wing jacks with no
problems.....Well today we had a problem.
RV-7A owner ...John von Linsowe in Metamora, Michigan
Today I became the new 'caretaker' of RV-7A N715AB.
This fine example was skillfully built by Gary Kremers and his
talent and craftsmanship show through in every detail. I am looking
forward to hours and miles of enjoyment with the help of this forum
in operating and maintaining the 7A.

Ice/Snow Again on North Texas
We got another round Friday (Google Traffic grab
below from Friday - note all the accident symbols). 500
accidents in Dallas alone on Friday (they have 1 snow plow I think).
I don't know how you folks up north do this for such a large chunk
of the year. You're stronger willed than me!
I started to drive out to the airport Friday morning
before it started, but turned around about halfway. Good head
Unusual for DFW (below). Susie and I stopped
at the middle school football field on the way to the grocery store
to 1) get a picture and 2) explore the ABS capabilities of the car
in the empty parking lot. That's her about to throw a snowball
at me. You'll have to trust me that there is a football
practice field behind her. School let out at noon. Wild
packs of kids running in/out of the house - wolfing down food and
disappearing as wet blurs. Some I'd never seen before, and it
was wonderful to watch. The dryer ran all day.
