Smile Show us your odometer!

well it only took 13 years and 4,000+ hours to turn over that many miles. thought to take a look because i knew i was getting close. it has been an incredible plane! it has never let me down and the two lycoming engines have been just as good. i hope this is motivation to all building and looking to get an rv. it is the best bang for the buck.

There are a lot of 50 year old planes out there that haven't flown that many hours. Sure gives you a feeling of how enjoyable it is to fly an RV.

That needless taxi time does bring down the total. The average ground speed is 132 knots.

Challenge Accepted! Here's our odometer which includes our New Year's Day 2013 flight to Lake Havasu and back (had a headwind thus the 1:21 time).

Turbo, I'll be picking up some miles and Islands in April so you'd better get hopping...ah...I mean FLYING Rosie
