That would be Rick Grays Turf,So Gary is an Ohio Valley aviator now.This is a very active RV sector and great group of guys.He might miss the warm weather but he will have great visibility without the So Cal Smog.

As you fly south to visit Turbo, you'll pass right over KRYY, McCollum Airport, Kennesaw GA (2.5 RV miles from my home). Stop by. I'll buy the BBQ lunch.

I guess Gary figured that once Texas folks start moving out tot eh left coast, it was a sign of the end times, so he might as well move back east.....

We'll mis ya' too Gary - and I have total sympathy with the efforts it takes to move!

Default Glad I had him when I needed his knowledge

Gary played a huge part of my building as a TC and DAR, his knowledge is something I hope he has not retired from. Anyone near PA, use Gary for everything he can guide you with.
I was really looking forward to seeing him at a fly-in in a couple of weeks. I'll miss him, but I am glad for others and that I was able to have him help me when he was in SoCal.

Now we have 2 RV6's at VVS, and I have another brain to pick for RV knowledge. Welcome to the right side of the states. Looking forward to flying and chatting with you!
