What's wrong with using TP twice?!.
The older I get, the cheaper I get. My 401k is taking huge hits daily from the leeches in DC. I gotta fly, so I'm going to fly cheap.
Twin 50s on the new one!

It's been raining buckets here for several days and it looks like it will probably continue into the weekend... I may not make it, Dan. I've got a reservation at the Comfort Inn and I'll have to make up my mind by tomorrow. :(

I have been watching that on national weather John, if you think its going to be fine as far as the weather and you have no doubts will see you this weekend, If you have any doubts at all error to the side of safety there is some rough country between here and there, take no chances. Just drop us a line if you get in the air or if your going to stay hangered so we wont wonder and worry, ok...................Dan

Ok John, Mountains and clouds when mixed can be a bad proposition, not worth the risk. This is how you have been flying for years, by making smart decisions. I am watching the Flooding in Colorado right now on the news, looks like Boulder is under water. There will be pictures taken, we will get em to you...........Dan

Well, I just got home Sunday afternoon, the air park is all cleaned up and things are put away for another Year, we had another good turnout and a new face or two. Thanks to the Guys that made it for the KVIS no.3, this was the third year. For those that made the Saturday " do not fly streight event", we had a ball as this was headed up by our one and only "Cubes". Rich did a little talk on the use of the oxygen Bottle(whilst the guys made the best use of the Barley Pop Bottles) as Frase would put it.Thanks Rich, most informative and well executed. From the BBq on Friday night, to departure on Sunday morning, we had a ball, It was our pleasure to be able to Host the event the third year and we are Talking about that 4th one comming up. For those that were not able to make this year stay tuned and we look forward to seeing you next year! You all made the weekend for us, we had a jolly time, I had way to much to eat and plenty of laughs..........Thanks Guys.

Thanks goes to Danny, Gloria, Ira, and Missy for putting on the best fly in of the year. It's always a lot of fun with great flying and a huge feedbag of the best vittles you can have. Good people and lots of laughs. The Oceano fly out was a hoot as well.
Thanks again

Dan, thanks to you and your gang for all the hard work. I had a blast and got more than a good lesson or two. Flew home Saturday night on Tony and Brian’s wing and was able to hang in there, am starting to get the picture. Got home in time to take R out on the town and just laid down for a “little bit” and out for the count.

Lou

KVIS get's a little better every year . Great location with the EAA picnic area and walk to the Hotel feature ! ;) I think someone suggest a fly out lunch next year and that would be outstanding ! 8) Dan ,Gloria, Ira and Missy...thank you for a wonderful time ! John Kerr has stopped flying and has his polished T-18 up for sale along with his "low and slow" Pietenpol (sp ?) If anyone would like more information contact me (rx115@cox.net) and I can send you his e-mail/phone number . :)
