I've always enjoyed reading your posts and thought your plane looks amazing. Inspiration for me as I'm getting close to completing my -7. I'm based out of Waukegan and find myself up at ENW quite a bit so I'll keep an eye out for Auroroa. Can't wait to see it in person.
Best wishes for you and your wife during this really tough time.
