Hi guys...........

Just to update my position on the donation I am making to the family.. Apparently the shut down of the guv has held up the check the NTSB was going to send me for my recovery and help on the inspection of N820RV. I have not received any funds from the insurance company either so I cannot present those checks to the family during the LOE fly in.... Sorry... I hope you guys have a fun and safe time down there this weekend...

For those who don't know my involvement, you can read these threads and it will explain all the details..

Fly safe...

Ben.

The previous post on the apron status was not clear to me. If someone comes up Saturday for an hour or so, will there be asphalt/concrete ramp space?

I avoid taxiing on unprepared surfaces.

YES

I just came home from my FNL hangar and on the way out drove down by the ramp area to see how many planes were there. There are 3 areas from N-S, with the center one in front of the jet center being the one finishing up. They planned to do it first then move to the southernmost one, probably after LOE, then ?. I noticed they had started to work on the area to the east of the FBO hangar next to the jet center. That to me means they are close to finishing that center part to the west.

CTAF will direct you as to which taxiway to use and which parking area.

As of about 4:30PM, there appeared to be a few RVs on the south ramp, and one large motorhome in the terminal parking area. Right now south ramp area is being used for GA, and the North ramp area for jet traffic.

I'll be heading out there to work again in the morning and will take another look and maybe send update.

Thanks GH. I saw the planned ramp issues and for phases 2 and 3, ramp space was marginal at worst and poor at best.

Glad I made it home yesterday, looks like no VFR flying today in the Denver area. Snowing here in Littleton at the moment, only good thing is it's not sticking to anything, the ground is too warm. Tomorrow looks to be a good day though. Deb and I will be there sometime in the afternoon, plan to make a fall colors flight through the mountains in the morning, assuming reasonable mountain weather.

Regards,
