Default Gary Sobek aka "Condor" arrived in PA

So Cal has lost a great friend, pilot, DAR and encyclopedia of RV knowledge. Pennsylvania has gained one. I just got off the phone with my friend and he was pulling in to the driveway of his new digs in PA. Just thought those that know him and knew of his move would be glad to know he has arrived safe.

Now I am off to move 64GH into his old hanger at CCB

Condor departed SoCAL on Sunday (and glad he arrived safely) but we sure are going to miss his SoCAL presence!!!!! Enjoy your retirement on the east coast (and stay warm!), Rosie

So Gary, are you ready to come skiing with us now? We still have a spot open.

We are going to miss Gary in SoCal. I crossed paths with Gary many times during my build. Since I was building at the Cable airport EAA chapter, Gary would stop in and look over my shoulder from time to time. He signed off my plane on the DAR inspection, and gave me several RV motivational rides.

I wish him well in his new adventures back East.

Default PA is a big state

Well, at least by East Coast Standards.

It's good to have an RV "heavyweight" on right coast. When is the welcome-Gary-party?

I will leave out the name of the town Gary can post it. South west corner just over the border from West Virginia. I believe 157GS is at KVVS Connellsville PA.

AMEN to that!

Hard to grasp I cannot walk a few steps over to his hanger to talk, get advise, figure out where to go to lunch, go fly or when to go to the range. CCB will never be the same without him there.

He is a good friend. Y'all on the east coast scored big time.
