Default I wish...

My 40 was flown off on the 4! I would love to make this one...I will unfortunately be flying in circles trying to get the time flown off.

Have a beer (and maybe some scotch) for me! Oh yeah and enjoy Tanya's cookies too!

Bill, your including the rooms is a stroke of genius!
This is gonna be a great fly-in.

Do you know if the FBO at KMPJ is still selling fuel?

Hey Andrew, you could steel a company plane and pick me up on the way. :-) my 9 is down for paint so I'm walking too.

Thumbs up Fuel and the FBO

Chris Finkbiener is the local FBO and does sell fuel. He has also cut us a grass taxiway on the west side of the runway so we don't have to back taxi on the runway if the traffic backs up.

A group of our local RV guys went and walked it this week and marked any holes that needed to be filled and leveled and Chis is taking care of that as well.

He is all in for anything we need and you're right....it's going to be a great weekend.

Ross, don't forget that you and Doug and in charge of "stargazing" ??

Bill

I've actually convinced my better half to join me so count another two in weather permitting. We will be camping and we are interested in you picking up steaks for us too if that is not too much trouble Bill. We are really hoping for some great weather as we are both very excited about making the trip!

Post Checklist ??

Oh, man, a checklist.... Real campers don't use checklists and real men fly taildraggers

Usual tiedown stuff for airplane, other than the obvious tent camping gear I might suggest: A small LED flashlight, air mattress under bedroll, possible use of an extension cord and electric blanket. (never tried it myself but it's been mentioned and sounds good assuming no rain)

Always good to have a light plastic sheet under the tent. Folding chair is good but we will have 30-40 plastic chairs available. If you plan on hiking, you might think about a light back pack, camera, etc. There are quiet a few folks hiking so joining those groups is not a problem. Trails are well marked and pretty this time of year. Always have 30-50 feet of light rope just because.....

If you want to cook something the small backpack stoves are good but we will have light breakfast kinda things, dogs and burgers for lunch, steak out for dinner, (bring your own steak or tell us ahead of time and we can pick them up for you) We'll post a week out when we confirm just how heavy the breakfasts are gonna be. We have folks making noises about upgrading continental to full fat,... after all,... we do fly for food!

Hot showers on site but bring your own towels, etc. We will have ice, coolers, water, etc available 24x7 so no need to haul it. If you want anything special to drink....bring your own and I'll help you drink it!

I think you're gonna like the camping side. If the weather cooperates, you'll have lots of fun folks to show you how not to set up a tent

Default OK...ok...

Looks like our friday and saturday opened up and we are going to be there in the 10! It will be me, Carrie (my wife), and Madi (our 2 y/o daughter). We are planning on camping, but have a room reserved just in case...you never can be too prepared with a two year old!

We are currently planning to come down friday and stay friday night, and leave sometime midday on saturday. Weather may change that decision...that and how much Tanya and Scott force me to drink!

See you all there!

Default Petit Jean Fly-in

Cindy (my wife) and I will be there Friday afternoon.
We'll be camping! The last time we camped there we were the only ones there.
This time should be a little different!
We're looking forward to some fun and relaxation!

Mark
