What works for you?? I just assumed you were retired, but it says you're a Mil/Gov? You're a General commanding a Marine base?? So maybe you gotta work??
Just looking at the Weather. Out of the next 3 days, tomorrow looks the best. Supposed to be beastly hot by you.

Ok Ron, While I was typing this, I see Randy Hooper jumped in. He's right there in BNA by you. Being so close, he'd be your best bet.

Hey Karl, I know what a Hornet is, but what's a scooter??

Oh, Ok, I just looked it up. Its an A-4, same thing John McCain flew. (They didn't call them scooters in my day, but then my day was a million years ago.)

A4ís are commonly called Scooters by those who flew them. HeinemannĎs rocket is also a common name after the designer Ed Heinemann. I think it was the last airplane designed for the Navy that came in lighter and faster than what the Navy asked for. Got my fair share of time in the two seat J model and also the single seat A4E. Blast to fly!!

Default "Maybe" tomorrow--Saturday, July 31??

Hi Ron, I was surprised that you were still interested in seeing other 8's. Tomorrow is Saturday, July 31. Wx is supposed to be VFR. I can't promise yet (til tomorrow), but if you're interested, I'll fly up by you. Again, I wasn't a builder, just a buyer, so all I can promise you is a look/see and some flying.

If you're interested, shoot me your cell phone number to 404 550 2163. Probably be 3ish before I could get there---I'm not a morning person.

Ok, Ron, I see you're still not on line. I'm headed for the airport. And then to M91. (Its 11:35 right now,) You've got my phone number. If you're there, you're there. If not, then I'll just have a nice cross country. Only about an 1 + 20 flight. Wouldn't be able to talk to you in the air, but I think your phone number will text thru.. Probably about 3ish. (Are you central or Eastern time)--maybe 2 ish) Always stop for a Big Mac on the way to the airport. That holds me for the whole day.

Hey Ron, I see you never got my message. Just as well, about half way between Chatanooga and Nashville, it started to get awfully hazy. Not that I can't fly IFR, but the plane is not legal for it, ie, couldn't shoot an instrument approach. So I did a
U'ie and headed back home. Naturally, had to do a couple of rolls and loops first.
