Default Me and my Vipers

Please say a prayer for my family and my Vipers. We are down here on the sea wall in Galveston Texas waiting for hurricane Ike to come ashore.

Are you going to Texas City on the 27th-28th? I was thinking of bringing my 424, and MAYBE 428, but 424 for sure.

Good thinking. I've been thru some smaller ones at the coast and it wasn't any fun. Ike looks like trouble. Take care.

Budman27:

A note you can read when you get back, I hope soon. Was in New Orleans 3 days after the big one in the 1960's. Also in Brownsville a few years later after a big blow there. I chartered a boat to see what was left of Padre Island. When we got there the only standing structures left were a few foundation systems, everything else was simply gone. Glad you left the island, poop happens. Get back to us when home and powered up. ENJOY

Budman - thanks for posting, I was wondering how you were doing down there.

Glad to hear the house is standing, and that you're ok.

Glad to hear your family, home, and Vippers are safe (for the most part).

Just got an email from Dub, he is living off a generator also, but his blew up. Said he didn't know anything about small engines

Addicted is when you are sorting through abandoned cars knee deep in mud looking for a good battery to field charge your plane! Good to see you and you family are AOK.
