Default When Will You Be at SnF 2014?

There have been a few threads started in sub-forums, but how about one here in "General" - who's headed to Sun 'n Fun, and when will you be there?

I hope to arrive in "Mikey" (our RV-6) on Monday afternoon, and stay until Friday(ish). I have to fly all the way back to Nevada when I leave, so the "ish" is weather dependent. Staying in the Kitplanes house, but I hope to spend some evenings at the HBC tent to see who's there.

I'll be wandering the show most of the time - leave me a message at the Belvoir/Kitplanes booth if you want to get in touch.

I will be in HBC for the first year. Every other year I am with the certified by the VOR. Probably Tue, Wed & Thurs. I need to fly to Charleston Friday for a grandsons birthday. They should have know better than to plan a kid for birth during SNF.

Weather is looking good for my arrival in HBC Tuesday AM. I will probably stay until some time on Thursday.
One of my plans this year is to find some used 6 inch wheels at the flymart which I can use as temps while I am building the landing gear for my biplane project.
I also customized a camper's stool so I can watch departures and arrivals at the flight line without the orange fence being in my line of sight.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
