I slept 12 hours that night.

In the motorcycle world they'd call that an ironbutt ride. Have done that sort of thing in my oh so distant dim memory past but couldn't countenance a journey like that anymore in my dotage- my hat is off to you.

As for seats, another vote for Classic Aero.

That was a fun trip report to read. Some day I'll go for a "fly-about" like that. Meanwhile, keep posting about your rv6 re-build.

Pulled my old radio setup and installed a new Garmin GTR200B. Long-term aim is to fit a GPS 175 and get the RV-6 IFR-equipped for LPV approaches.

So far I really like the GTR 200B. The 3D audio function is great, and the bluetooth music muting during intercom and radio transmit/receive is nicely controlled.

I also wired it to my GRT HXr for remote frequency selection, which is slightly pointless (given that they sit less than 12in from each other) but also kind of fancy.
