Default On the final stretch...!

I'm running out of important things to do...(other than shave).
I must be getting close.
I hope to enlist my Chapter-mates to help me get the engine cranked in the next few weeks, and will have them swarm over my project before the DAR is scheduled. Hope to get my fly-off done before the cold weather gets to NJ. Stoked!!!

I am right there with you Bruce but work demands and high temps keeping me away from the hangar. Anybody interested in a construction job doing airport lighting and navaids? We are hiring in the office and in the field.

Way to go Bruce! If there is one thing that SkyManor needs is another flying RV. BTW, is that a fixed pitch prop?
