VAF stays in business due to those who donate yearly and some wonderful advertisers

This honor system site strives to be a stress-free, civil place for fans of Van's RV kitplanes to virtually network and solve building issues.  The goal is that when you finish your RV and fly places, and meet in person the people you have talked with here, you will already kind of know them.  First and foremost this site is about good people.

Mom Visit #4

Saturday I flew down to Houston and back - trip #4.  This brings the mileage total to over 2,000 statute miles on these trips to see Mom.  The best use of avgas money in my 6's 12-yr flying history.  I used the ruler feature of Google Earth to see how far 2,000 statute miles is (pic at right).  Somewhere up in northern Canada <g>.  I was impressed with myself, until I thought about the factory guys flying from Oregon to Sun 'n Fun each year.  And back.

Three really nice RV guys in the FBO when I was about to head back for home.  You meet the nicest folks in an RV, paraphrasing the old Honda Passport ad.

Hope you had a good weekend.  OSH PIREPs and links as I get 'em.
