Default RV-8 and the Great Weekend

This past weekend was one of the best we've had so far this year in the upper left hand corner. The rain stopped (briefly), the clouds parted (briefly) and the temperature warmed enough to put the parka away for a few days.

Saturday we made it out to Forks for lunch, hadn't been able to do that so far this year. It was a really nice trip.

Sunday I wanted to go check on the Elma airport (84WA) that was recently permanently closed. I wondered if they had dug up the runway or anything. It is still there, in about the same condition, but the "X"s marking it as closed are really hard to see from the air.

Itís a shame that Elma is closed down. I used to go in there all the time and they had some awesome food in there when they had the restaurant open. Itís a pot farm now. I wish someone in the aviation community would buy it and make it into a happening airport again.

Glad you captured a screenshot of my favorite part of the Forks run.

Hey Steve,
Great post. Where you up at Jefferson County on Sunday?
My buddy and I were on our Harelys and walked by an -8 by the museum that looked a lot like yours.
Great day in May, huh?!!

Nope, t'weren't me. I was going in the other direction on Sunday. There are getting to be a lot of -8s around here and several look very similar.
