Dan,

Congrats! I should flip over 2200 in the next week or so! Still makes me grin!

Good job congratulations! If we add all our hours we finally can beat Turbo.

And I was getting depressed about getting close to 1,000 hours on mine. Thinking I might be wearing it out.

You just made me feel a lot better!

Congratulations!

Made me do some mental math almost 5 years flying and 435ish hours, I should have another 16 years or so before 2000 hours TT! My goal is to try and wear it out!

480 hours at 2 and a half years... got a ways to go but enjoying every bit of it!

I really enjoy having the extra fuel on board with my airplane, I routinely make 6-hour legs on a cross-country and land with 3+ hours still in the tanks.

Built an off-plan RV9A with too much fuel and too much HP. Should drop dead any minute now.
