You are definitely going to want to install the super tracks mod on your slider. I am working on a similar mod for a childseat in the back of my 6, and it makes life so much easier to be able to pull the canopy all the way back and reach directly into the baggage area.

If you want multiple children anyway, twins are the biggest bang for the buck. I have fraternal girls, plus 3 others, so I really need that Cherokee 6, or even better, a friend with a Cherokee 6

Default Pacific to Atlantic

I did Santa Catalina Island (KAVX) to Newport News Virginia (KPHF) by way of the Grand Canyon and everything in between. Andy are you bringing the twins to Idaho?

Having trouble posting the Grand Canyon picture, so imagine a really big hole with lots of rocks.

It's beautiful.

I like polished aluminum...if it's not my airplane

Most of my RV weekend time was spent cleaning, buffing, and waxing paint, and yes, polishing aluminum...thankfully gear legs only. Happens every year about this time, after all the d*** pollen stops falling in the South.

Untainted123, the super tracks would be a nice but so far Iíve modified everything to fit stock. Iíve been eyeing 300-6ís for a while, Iím afraid I missed my window though.

Marvin, twins might make Idaho more adventurous than I can handle.
Currently my oldest and lilí Dude are both calling dibs on the copilot seatÖÖÖnot sure whoís gonna win.

Bud, maybe we should partner on a 10 build at your place!

Default Not Quite the weekend, but close enough...

This Weekend marked the final weekend I had to study for my final skills checkoff for the semester of RN school. Today, I was able to finally get back in to shop for some one on one time with my RV-8 project!
