Default EAA 105 Garden Valley Eclipse Fly-Out

28 planes full of 60 friends enjoying the long epic weekend!

Slide show:

Teen Flight One...

Paul "Traffic Cone" AKA "Peddals" Grimstad

300 marshmallows consumed during 300kt lies.

Stop dreaming of the RV-15,16...and keep an eye on this guy.

Several -10s made the easy backcountry strip along with this well known one.

Once Miss Behavin was tied down by Ed and Marsha, the party went into high gear!
Bruce, Katie, Hana and RV-8 HulaGirl

Default Best flyin ever

Bruce and Katie completely outdid themselves with this flyin. Between white water rafting, horse back riding, smores and an overall great meal plan, I can not recall a better and more enjoyable flyin ever!! Having the awesome solar eclipse was a great finale.
So many big names from Vans and all so humble. Everyday I know more and more that I made the right decision with my -10, how else does someone travel so far, to such a remote place and do it so quickly (and the least expensive way)?
Big thanks to EAA 105 for Hosting event and especially Bruce and Katie for an awesome experience.
