In actuality I still don't know... but hoping for late October or early November.

Hi Martin, Are you at KPTK? My son is in Rochester Hills, the next time I'm over for a visit if you're around I'd love to see your build, been following you on Youtube.

Fingers crossed for an open border soon

Yes, I am at PTK, and I would be honored by a visit. Send me a PM and I'll give you contact info. As for the border issue, I hope to visit Ontario this weekend and get back together with my friends at the Canadian Aviation Museum (formerly CH2A) at Windsor Airport. I'm saddened that you don't have the same options as I now have regarding the border; it just seems unfair.

Added another blogspot post today; see link in signature below. This one covers my flight training trips to Canada (Chipmunk and RV-14) and Texas (RV-8 transition training) in more detail. Hopefully this catches me up on all my obsessive documentation for the moment; you'll get a break for awhile. Hope it's not too boring for you; it wasn't for me. Yet another obligatory teaser photo:

Latest Blogspot post is up; see link in signature below. Still crawling my way up Mt. Airworthy, beset by sickness and bitter cold... but tantalizingly close to the peak. Here's the obligatory teaser photo:
