ALFIO, you were not forgotten. Look at the intersections on the top left hand corner of the cake. They are ALFIO AND SHIRL!

Also there are the airport identifiers for Belfast, Maine... Jim's airport and the name Tony gave Vlad years ago.

Yes, we saw the clever IFR waypoints, though could not figure all of them out. That is one of the most original cake markings we have seen. Thanks.

Talking One of funniest transmissions overheard at the KPYM RV gathering

One of the funniest transmissions I overheard on the frequency at the RV gathering occurred at the end of the day. Late afternoon Captain John suggested a flight to KAFN for ice cream at Kimball Farms. If you have had a Kimball Farms ice cream you understand why a call like that is hard to resist. On a scale of 1 to 10 they are an 11 *and* you can fly there.

Most everyone jumped at the opportunity and in no time flat there was a conga line of airplanes lined up to depart on runway 15. One after one the RVs departed self announcing. It sounded like.....

Blue and white RV departing 15, down wind departure to the north.....
Red RV departing 15 ......
Orange and silver RV-7 departing 15....
RV Nxxxx departing 15.....
This went on until the last plane, which was a Cessna 172, pulled out onto 15 and announced its departure calling out...
NOT and RV departing 15......
Not to be outdone, the MA State Police Helicopter waiting for the gaggle of RVs to depart took off and announced....
"State Police Helicopter, NOT an airplane, departing 15..."

It definitely put a smile on my face and left me with a sense of community.

Thumbs up The Best Show on Earth!

Thank you guys that was cool! I've been through couple fed checks before and this one looked real. With all CAP setup, parking etc. I just went through two customs couple hours ago so all paperwork was perfect. Good laughs!

What a weekend! Early morning I did a quick 3 hour run to Canada.



Delivered my headset to new owner, made couple friends (thanks Captain Bruno!) and got some cash for gas. Love Canadians great bunch of friendly folks. Brought me their brand name maple syrup and coordinates of a private strip near Montreal.




Cleared US Customs at 11 am and took a quick dip in a creek Upstate NY.





Captain John teletyped hurry up Russki your cake is here. Two more hours and I am at the party.





I've never had a cake like this. Deserves its own thread here.








Then we did an ice cream run as Mike described. Turbo we missed you. What could be better? 7.2h on the hobbs a good daily dose of flying.




Afterparty finished passed midnight.
In 10 hours we were continuing...
