(Hopefully Terry Lutz is reading this; then we'd finally get a chance to meet up! )
Tim,
As a former Michiganger, I've been following your effort with interest.
Looks like real quality work.
Way to go.

And this is my first photo posting using Postimage. Hope it works!

That's a drop-dead gorgeous paint job.

Sure! I have time and need to keep busy. Sounds like a good upgrade to your -9.

Not that weekend, but in the days leading up to it, Steve Smith flew me from Ashland down to Montague in his RV-8 to see the skunk works shop where he and Bob Mills are making the tapered carbon fiber wings that will be going onto Bob's Rocket Six. The day started with an overcast, but cleared up for a beautiful trip across the Siskiyous.







The next morning we started the annual Condition Inspection by checking the torque on the main landing gear saddle bolts. As described in the Breaking News thread, the good NAS1604 nuts hadn't moved.

The young man in the left seat worked with Jonathan McCormick at Plane Schemers for about 6 months on the design. The design was a bit ?out there? for me, but once we saw Evoke?s paint job, we were blown away.

Thanks again to all of your help with the plenum. So far, it?s working well.

Fly safe!

You may see a lot more of the plane in a year or so. My son will have her once we complete the RV-10 and she will be based at LVN.

Not quite last weekend, but one of my last weekends flying in 2019. Took a flight out to Chatham, MA on Cape Code to take my bride to brunch. First shot is of the Chatham historic Lighthouse with the airport in the distance (CQX), followed by the Cape Cod National Seashore in Wellfleet, followed by the tip of the Cape - Provincetown Aiport(PVC) and then flying through the BOS Bravo back home.

Default Great pics!

I really enjoyed a flight up there last summer. Truly a beautiful part of the country. Meanwhile, travel to/from Cape Cod (especially in the summer) is Exhibit A in support of the claim that flying small airplanes is better than driving.

When we rolled out at KPVC, there was a turkey on the runway - trying to get away from Pilgrims, no doubt.
