Flew in a 3-ship with Steve "Amazing" Grace (RV-8) and Roy "Jarhead" Geer (RV-8) down to Killeen, TX, for a funeral missing man formation. The family was grateful.

Weekend ain't over yet, but that's it so far.

Default Put on my pants..

SF fog kept me grounded the last few weeks, so it was time to finish up the last significant part of the build .. the infinite sanding and fitting of the wheel pants.

Got then aligned, fitted, filled, sanded, primed, and installed and did a speed test

75% power, 5500 ft
OAT 27 C
CHTs 347-358
FF 13.8
IAS 148 kt
TAS 169 kt

IAS change: +9 kts
CHT change: -20 F

Fantastic! 25 hours into Phase 1 and the plane continues to stoke the grin.

Participated in moving a Husky from Houston, TX to New Jersey. I flew the second leg from Monroe, LA to Huntsville, AL. Interesting getting a 58 lb Husky to get back in the baggage area on an RV-7 . . . . .

Good job Dan! I don't think we've ever flown a fur ball quite that big.

I did the Super Tracks mod to my 9 slider specifically for PetsnPaws. But getting a large/heavy dog in my baggage area is way too difficult. I’Ve had to limit the weight to 30’ish pounds.

Unhappy Nothing

My gal and I hoped to escape the horrible smoke in the Sacramento Valley this morning, not to mention the heat... by the time we got to the airport, the visibility was down to around 4000 feet in heavy smoke and it was raining ash. Now sheltering in the kitchen (a bad thing, when the fridge is well-stocked) looking forward to better conditions.

Much like Lars.... the smoke is so heavy I'm marinating the project in smoke.

I'd like to spray some paint, and need a bit more humidity than the 14% we currently have, plus maybe a little less ash. After the upcoming storm, I suppose.
