Default FROM ITALY TO TEXAS

While on a trip in Texas I had the opportunity to meet DR in person at the VanCave.
I landed at 52F with my friend?s Cardinal, he?s spending four years as instructor at Sheppard AFB.
After a visit to the VanCave, we went to a tex mex for lunch with some other RV guys.
We had good food and we spent a very good time talking together about plane and flying, at 52F there is a big and friendly RV community!

At the end of the visit I asked Doug about Jay Pratt and Hicks field, and in a couple of minutes the ?VAF connection? arranged for us a stop to meet Jay at his shop.
VAF it?s a big help while building and a fast lane in connecting people.
Once again I had the feeling that building and flying it?s all about friends.

gotta say, you always get a great welcome amongst aviators in the U of S, specially amongst stablemates

Whilst you're there we paid a short visit to your place in Italy yesterday, fantastic flying conditions over the Alps, a very nice airfield and a warm welcome from Luca
