Yes. Yesterday was my first day of retirement! 29.4 years.

My goal will be to follow Vlad's example and do more flying.

Merry Christmas

Default Yes goodbye to 2015

2015 was a fabulous year for me. Along about middle 2014 I started to look for an airplane. After many inspections I found her mid-2015. I flew her to her new home in Beverly, Ma from Paris Tx. By far the longest XC I ever did and to this day I think about how great and marvelous that trip was.

Here she is now:

Since I got her to Massachusetts I've flown her weekly on local hops. Once the weather permits there will be more XC work done. I'd love to know when the next Gadabout Gaddis Gathering is.

2016 will be even better than 2016 though that's going to be hard to beat.

Default Yakov Smirnoff, "What A Country!"

I think you should publish your photos of "America from the Air" in a book. And paying tribute to the famous Russian comedian who came to America and became famous, Yakov Smirnoff, you could call your book "What A Country!"

By the way, I am serious!

I thought I was doing well with flying 56 hours this first year of having my RV. I always enjoy your exploits Vlad and admire your ambassador status in the RV world as well. Keep it up!!
