Sigh. So nice.

I think I could plop myself down in one of those Adirondack chairs if one of you blokes would wake me up in August.

Congrats on a great trip, Bryan. You give me something to shoot for in my build. Maybe someday . . . .

I'm planning to fly in to Lenexa in the week or two after OSH. Let me know if you want to get together.

You bet, Bryan, I'd really like to take a look at your build. Are you flying in to OJC or IXD? Just let me know and I'll plan to meet you.

Default Not sure

Im not sure. I grew up in OP, and will be coming down to see family. Tell me which airport you recommend. I'll keep in touch when my plans firm up.

If you have family in Overland Park, OJC would probably be a little closer for you. It's a popular airport on the KS side of the state line with two good FBO's, Air Associates and Kansas City Aviation Center (has self serve fuel). One active runway.

I have a 150 I keep at Advanced Aviation at IXD just south of Olathe. It's a larger airport (one runway is closed but two are active), although I think the annual traffic count at OJC is a little higher. Either airport will serve you well. At IXD, I'm very pleased with Advanced (also has self serve fuel).

Both are towered airports just south of the KC Class B airspace.

Thanks. I was vaguely familiar with both. I'll pick one when it gets a little closer.

Default Sisters, OR - RV's welcome

Nice trip report. I'm generally a lurker here, but the first pic showing Sisters airport pushed me over the edge. Sisters is our home - right on the runway. Stop in if you are touring Central OR and say hi and enjoy an iced tea or whatever. My schedule requires that I work in the PDX area so commute back and forth (by RV4) but am home in Sisters most every weekend.

RV's are definitely welcome - give me an email in advance and we can likely set you up with a car to borrow if needed. Hangar space for 1 RV is probably easy to also accommodate.
