A local historian paired us up with a local rancher Frank to show us around.



My Great Grandma was born and raised in the area, My Great Great Grandpa converted/moved into an old mill on a small river. The old converted mill was again added on to and fixed up by another family in the early 1900's into what stands today. It's know locally as the gingerbread house. The owner was quite "tight" and a local supply store had some unclaimed roof tiles for a house in Sante Fe that he picked up for free. He framed the roof to make the roof tiles work.







The Cistern pump.



Story goes the man who built the gingerbread house also built 1 stone corner post every Sunday morning, they were scattered around for miles and thousands of acres.





My Great Grandma's school.



An uncharted airstrip of a local homebuilder that has recently passed away.



Cemetary and headstones of my Great Great Grandpa.

Frank was an excellent guide and filled us in on lots of local info. He makes his own belt buckles out of bull horns with his brand on them.





Just a few shed deer antlers he's picked up while rounding up cows.



A Horse Hands measuring stick used by a horse buyer for the US Calvary.



We finished off the next day Boating/Bowfishing with my brothers.









A 22 min flight home this morning finished off our long weekend, man this RV lets us pack a lot of stuff into the weekend!

Is there a place near the airport At BHB to get lobster? I?ve been to KBST, Young?s Lobster Pound will pick you up at the airport and bring you over to their place.

Default First trip after "stay at home"

After 3 months without flights, we left home in town near Paris to see the ocean and our favorite island.

Sunday, Butch in his 6A and I flew from Perry GA KPXE to Kirbyville TX T12 to visit with our RV7 buddy we met at last year?s Petit-Jean flyin, Frank Foreman.



He has a nice hangar. Big enough to fit all 3 of our RVs in it.



Of course, after our 4 hour flying time, Frank provided us with some adult beverage - Shiner Bock.

Default From GA to TX (part 2)

On Monday the 3 of us pulled out our RVs and flew up to Vaca Moo TA37 to visit Carlos?s ?new? Airpark. Butch?s 6 and my 7, both A models handled the turf quite well.



Carlos & his girl friend LuLu were great hosts. Gave us a tour and cooked up a great lunch of burgers & spicy dogs.



On our way back to Kirbyville we stopped and filled up with the cheapest gas we?ve seen in a long time $2.63/gal at Cherokee County KJSO.



Butch & I departed on Tuesday morning to beat the threatening hurricane and were home for dinner. Another great RV adventure.

Default RV 7a Wash to NM and return, Covid supply drop.

https://youtu.be/tte0VnLFrBM

We flew down May 15 from Eastern Washington to Crownpoint NM/Page AZ to drop of reusable masks for seniors and Hand sanitizer to Lechee AZ, and Crownpoint AZ where my wife is from. Then returned through Grand Junction Co, Moab, Utah, Low approach into SLC Class B (cause we could), and returned to Prosser (S40).
