Guy, Congrats on the new -10. It would be tough to see my -6 go.

Seems like you already have a name for her..." TK" or "Two Kids"

Do you KAEG guys do any special RV get-togethers? I'm still stuck in ABQ and the few times I've been out to Double Eagle it's been dead. Moriarty is still RV active though.

Default Best Breakfast Burrito?

Very nice story, and a happy ending!
What really caught my attention though was your mention of breakfast burrito's. I love breakfast burrito's. Seriously, can you recommend locations with really tasty breakfast burrito's?

Enjoy the -10. I am the son-in-law of the previous owner and it was a great airplane. I even remember my first flight in it. My wife and I were just dating and he let me fly, I guess that meant he liked me. I am thrilled about the -8. We will see if he lets me fly this time.

I think you know how much your YouTube construction video featuring Jane Plane meant to me. In addition to helping keep my fires stoked all those years before I finally started building, you turned me onto Nickel Creek! I left comments, and you responded, which was pretty cool. Thanks for sharing this information... I hope the -10 serves you as faithfully, and I'll keep an eye on both at future OSH gatherings. BTW, what years did you attend OSH in Jane Plane? I wonder if I saw it without knowing... even though it was on my look-for list.

Great story Guy! I'm very glad that you found the right next plane.

I must admit that I'm also pondering an RV-10. We've really enjoyed our RV-8, but there have been many occasions when we've wished for more seats to take friends or family along with us. I may start an RV-10 project this year.

Primo's in Tehachapi. Local pilots meet there every Sunday morning around 8:30. Only a few blocks from the airport. I had their bacon breakfast burrito EVERY time. I don't know if the guys are jerking my string or not, but I'm told they named that burrito after me after I moved away...

KAEG- my local digs. Upstairs above Bode Aero. Closed Wednesday- Thursday or if the cook is in a bad mood. The cook, Curtis was head chef at a resort for years.

The burritos at KSAF are good, right in the terminal. They're remodeling until late spring.

WOW diner just off KGNT. 50's style diner. I prefer their raspberry chipotle French toast.

The best breakfast burritos are just west of E98. Park near the pumps. Walk the culvert across the irrigation ditch. Cross the road. Worth it.

You should make it to Telluride Bluegrass festival. We'll be there. Great music, fun airport. We were at OSH 2009-2012. Planning on it this year.

I'm pretty sure he likes you. Good luck with the upcoming move... You'll love flying Jane.
