I flew my compulsory daily routine and by the time I got to the hangar I saw lots of green. St. Patrick's Day!!!!





I also figured out that Jay would not be that successful without his boss. She rides motorcycle, drives pickup, wear boots and hat, shoots any weapon, pilots airplanes and cooks. Carol rules the house after work.








Famous feline (her name is Patches) like everybody else in Texas drinks.








We ate, drunk, told each other lies and folk tales. Why and how I ended up with Boomerang Bomber I don't remember. Was I totally drunk?

By the way I helped put one of those hours on his plane. Great flying plane (really doesn?t need a pilot, it flies itself).

I really enjoyed the visit and lunch, Vlad. I can?t wait to fly up to see you.



Dean the pleasure was mine Sir. Thanks for the excursion and lunch. I had good time.





We met at T31 and flew to Sulfur Springs for lunch.





Without you I would never knew where Mel keeps his 17 years old RV

Tweety, if you had burned thru 300 hours of AvGas in seven months, you'd fly slow too !

I'm diggin' the trip report and pics, makes me want to go fly a big grand adventure somewhere...

I said nearly the same think the time Vlad and I flew down to Kittyhawk. At his current pace, Vlad will catch up to Turbo !

(Turbo has averaged 28 hrs/month and Vald is burning thru 42 hrs/month)

Turbo, you better get flying

It's never about hours but destinations. I got bunch of hours in my previous life but could not log them. No goal to catch anybody. It's addiction you just can not stop. Probably I will soon. For a while. Local destinations are exhausted. Cash is low. But a bigger summer trip is under construction.

I am kind of feeling my way right now but you so eloquently state the way we used to look at flying. Enjoy it Vlad, both the doing and the sharing.

Great thread, you are very inspiring, I will be at the airport today working on baffling and the cowl. Your panel is similar to mine, I just need the expensive radio and transponder. Thanks for sharing all the photo's, have great day.
