Does Maine even know they are getting another Governor or are you going to spring it on them this weekend? It took a bit longer than I predicted for this to make it to VAF.

Default Welcome!

Dave, welcome to New England! I used to live in southern Maine, but am now just north of Boston in MA. Looking forward to getting to know you. Looks like you will be trying to find a hangar at the Bar Harbor airport or Bangor. I wish I could help, but I only know people to the south.

Best of luck. Look up Nick Knobil when you settle in. He is the RV ambassador down in Wiscasset.

Default Grass OK?

A buddy of mine who lives in Bangor and flies 747s has been trying to get me to buy land up his way for a while. 9 days ago he sent me a link to this auction site:
http://www.tranzon.com/search.aspx
which at the time was selling 1 acre lots on Peasley Field (Private-0ME4), which looks to be only about 6-8 miles NE of your new location. Apparently the auction was taken down, but might be worth sniffing around if you're interested in grass.

I know Vlad will visit more if you are based on grass.

Dave,
Ditto what Andy said about Belfast, but to be truthful we have three RV's based here, two 7A's and my 9A. The twelve under construction could use some inspirational flying time in a 12.....
Anyway, welcome to Maine and you will love the flying here! Please drop in to see us!

If you have any leads on a hanger PM me. I have my name on the list for a new one in Old Town, but need something for the winter till they are built in spring. Happy to share with someone maybe a highwing

Looking forward to meeting you guys and when the 12 gets there plenty rides for motivation.

Default Update

For my friends a little update - Made it to Maine and had a welcome snow storm a week ago.




The good news I found a future home. Great guys at Belfast, not sure why the welcomed me

Last night I went to their EAA chapter and joined. Small group but an active chapter. Looks like there will be 5 RV's on the field soon.

Lots of questions about what the guys in PA, I lied and didn't tell any stories except about Vlad. They did ask if I knew the infamous one - not sure why

I did say Vlad would be gracing us with a visit sometime next year along with the other cast of characters from the PA area

The EAA meeting was in Peter's hanger, He's got a nice RV12.







Thanks for the warm welcome - Peter, Mike, Andy, Duke and the rest of the EAA 1434 members

"Yup" that's Maine weathah. Been there. Done that. AS they say, "if you don't like the weather, wait a minute". Of course, a minute later you might be thinking "I wish I had the weather from a minute ago!"

We'll have to see what we can do about overrunning your new home base with RVs.
