Honey, can you pick me up in Albuquerque?...GLPalinkas trip
Well it happened ...welcome Nick Coblio
to the Tacoma area this month. After we got settled we decided to
make the pilgrimage down to the RV plant and check things out. I had
planned on maybe getting the practice kit and preview plans at best.
After my wife and I got to go for a flight we ended up with a RV7
emp with electric trim and a practice tool box. For anyone who is on
the fence about this and can get to their shop in Aurora Or I would
good. The flight was amazing and with the 7 the first kit fits
easily into a car.

It's the end of the month again so it's time for
our family to, as unobtrusively
as we can, gently remind regular readers that honor system yearly donations
determine whether or not our family business here runs at a profit
or a loss. The year is a little over 40% done, and
3.75% of the 22,253 registered forum users (853) have donated so far
in 2016. This doesn't include the 30,000+ unregistered users
who also view the site regularly. More like 1% if you count

We don't want a mansion or a yacht, but we do need the business in
the black to continue doing it. Please donate yearly if you
use it, and thanks again to those who do.
