New to posting on the Thorp forum. Own a T-18 and relocated to Nevada a few years ago. I had the pleasure to meet a nice young fellow in North Las Vegas that had parts and a great amount of knowledge about the T-18 (Cubes) right here in my own back yard. Now that I am retired, I hope to fly the T-18 for as long as I am able and to meet fellow T-18 owners.

I should have given a little history in my first post so I will do it now. I started building the Thorp when I was 20 years old (1974) in Torrance, CA. I learned a lot from guys like Ken Knowles, Bill Warwick and others at the Torrance Airport. The first flight was done at Chino Airport by Bill Warwick in 1981. As soon as I retired from Boeing in 2013, my wife and I moved from Torrance, CA to Henderson, NV. My T-18 has an O-360 with a Hartzell Constant speed prop. Just upgraded the panel (3rd time) to include a Dynon Skview. The plane has always been a joy to fly. I have noticed that the plane had more room when I was younger. It will be nice to meet some of you someday in the future.

Hi Randy - that "nice young man" to which you referred (Cubes) as well as a few other nice young men (and Rich Brazell) will be in Sedona (check out the thread below) for some down home kinship, as well as some flying fun. I hope you can join us there. It's not a long flight from Sin City.

Thanks for the invite to Sedona. I am always looking for an excuse to fly somewhere, unfortunately I will be in St Louis that weekend and letting SWA do the flying.
