Any RV'ers in the Augusta, GA area
 
My wife and I will be moving to Augusta in about three months and wondered if there were any other RV'ers in the area. We're on the waiting list for a hangar at KDNL. If anyone has any recommendations for other hangar options, please let me know.

Welcome
 
Welcome to the area, Ken. Lots of RVs 60 miles ENE @ KCUB. I am sure there are some in that area, but we have a great group here. Come visit!:D

We'll definitely be there. Looking forward to seeing the air show.

Down here
 
Hi Ken. I'm based in Louisville, Ga. (2J3) and there is hangar space available here. If you don't mind the 45 minute drive, I have a -10 and an Ag spraying business. We have a 5,000 X 100' paved runway and self-serve avgas and Jet-A.

I can be reached at 478 494 three 7 five 7.

Best,

Pea Patch aerodrome.
 
Forgot to mention our grass field at our EAA 172 Chapter (61GA) may well have hangar space there and also houses several RV's. We meet on the second Saturday of each month at 12:00 p.m. for lunch and a meeting.

Best,

Future Flight Plan
 
Thanks for all the inputs. I now have places to go: 61GA 2J3 32GA FFC CUB, from DNL and return, 02:31 394.2 NM :-)

Pierre, I will look you up after we get to Augusta and keep 2J3 in mind if a closer home for the RV doesn't turn up. I will also check into 61GA. I haven't had my RV-7 on a turf runway yet, but it should be no problem.

Hangar Found
 
Good news! I found a hangar just down the road at Thomson-McDuffie County airport KHQU. We're really looking forward to our move to Georgia. It also gets us closer to our property at Eagle Neck, where we would eventually like to build our retirement home. http://www.eagleneck.org
