Default VAF into Germany

Many may know Katie and I met a German RV family on VAF. Last year we hosted Matthis for the school year and then the rest of the family visited us in the summer. So now we are visiting them! The chance for the great fun and friendship should be credited to VAF!
I could write a book and fill a hard drive with pics, but I will keep it RV related.

Herman and Klaus -7s


To be continued

Klaus and sons Matthis and Mika work together to cowl the secret engine.
Matthis is wearing his Wilsonville Wildcats letterman jacket!

Yes Herman, doing well. And yes, very good day! It was great to meet you in person. And thank you so much for the fantastic RV flight demonstration!!! You built a nice RV!
Again, I am so sorry I missed your "Heavy" flight.
Next time we meet I hope to see your new RV-8.
And when you come to Oregon, please allow me to grill you a nice steak!
Prost!
Bruce
