Sparsky, i should be arriving at Stinson Field thursday or friday. The insruance company is dragging there feet, so this schedule could change.
If you could pick me up i'll buy gas and drinks.

ive got the phone list somewhere, i'll give you a call when the schedule is a little firmer.

Well I don't have my cell anymore... so home phone is your best bet. Or IM's/posts through Arfcom while you can.

I'm usually getting off work around 3:30 and get home around 5pm at the latest. So if ya do call... after 5pm my time is your only bet. Still got my pager by the way...

Unfortunatly, no i cant go to the farm this time. I have to get back home right away. on monday im leaving to go work in Maryland for a few months. Gunstock is looking doubtful also. id like to go, but i have no idea where i'll be in Oct.

Im writing this from Grand Junction CO. The flight so far has been ok if you dont count the turbulance, forest fire smoke, or broken radios. Its certianly been an adventure. Im going to lauch out of here 0500 tomorrow to try to avoid some of the turbulence. i should be in SA by early afternoon.

Hey.. not a problem

The_Emu, next time you do something like that and you need somebody to ride down shotgun let me know. A couple of days notice is all I would need.

Whatever happened to the Reno/Vegas run that was mentioned?

Sorry I was so late getting there, Emu! But it sure was nice to see you again, and I enjoyed the time spent with y'all Thursday. Next time I'll use the rubber mallet on my kids, so they go to sleep on TIME.

I only had a few days notice myself. Besides, because it was such short notice i got ripped on the airline ticket home. $425 one way on Am West.

As far as the reno trip, it was mentioned, no no one tried to make plans. it think it wouldnt work anyway. it would take all of a day just to get there in the kind of planes i fly.
