The velocity law states that the speed of your RV is directly proportional
to how cool your paint job is.

Default the Law of Hardware

No matter what hardware you are installing, you will always be one piece short.

Corollary: The shipping time for the missing piece is inversely proportional to the urgency of need.

The reliability of any component is inversely proportional to the ease with which it can be accessed.

Default Van's Time Axiom

Van's Time Axiom:

The need for any Van's part will inevitably be discovered at precisely 5:05PM Pacific Time on a Friday.


Corollary: If the part is urgently needed and causes your plane to be grounded, the Friday in question will precede a Monday Holiday.

Move to Atlanta. Everyone else has. ;-)

The walk-up counter at Aircraft Spruce East is open all day on Saturday.

Maybe that is my problem, every time I work on the RV, afterward I need to place an Aircraft Spruce order to replace what I screwed up or get some tool I don't have yet.

No matter how carefully you plan, once you have carefully wedged yourself in the cockpit floor to work on the panel from underneath, you will discover two forgotten items:
1. The exact tool you need for the job, and
2. Your cell phone you need to call for help
