Thx Bob and Blw2, really liked KJGG and it was nice to experience the same midwestern hospitality at an east coast airport.

Vlad, Thanks! Someday we’ll run into each other……

Pete, tell me twins keep getting easier!

Steve, she was managing the rest of the household and doing the normal school/XC stuff and (hopefully) staying out of trouble.

Default Remarkable planes and remarkable people

The RV-7 is a great, efficient traveling machine and a wonderful community is part of our RV experience. Andy and his family are very nice remarkable people. CaptSandy and I were honored that Andy made time to stop and say hi on his return flight.

We met Andy and Miya around a campfire at the Petit Jean about 6 years ago. I “knew” Crabandy from VAF and was happy to actually met him. And Myia introduced us to GAINT marshmallows! We are now good friends.

It was great to meet April and the twins. Now the only member of the Crabtree clan we have not met is their oldest daughter.
