Default Thanks, Robert.

Thank you Robert and keep building. We now have almost 90 hours on it since May. Day trips to the beach and mountains are wonderful. Giving lots of rides to others. We are really enjoying this magic carpet.

Busy busy busy with everything but the RV, but when you get a 46 degree day with light winds in December in Kansas you had better put everything on hold and get airborne. No one better to go flying with than my oldest daughter, every time we go her feet get a little closer to the rudder pedals.... I'm sure it'll happen soon enough.

Christmas Eve day, I just finished another skim coat of Sheetrock mud in the living room and my parents just got in town. It's 2 hours until Church, 1500 OVC and 40 degrees and I haven't kicked the tires and lit the fires on the RV in 21 days. Time for Dad's first flight lesson, it was harder to get him to take the controls than for him to taxi and fly it. Pretty cool feeling overall, role reversal of him teaching me to drive the tractor/combine/truck (I learned to drive a 70' Ford 3/4 ton stick in reverse picking up electric fence in a wheat field standing on the floorboards when I was 7) Easy now, don't jerk it around just listen to what it's telling you and fl.... I mean drive it! Dad took us sight seeing for a .6 around local landmarks, he found out this flying thing ain't that hard....
