Lowell,

Music obligations at church will not permit me to be there this year. Hope we can change the programing for next year. You guys have a great time, and post plenty of pictures.

Lewis

Got here this evening. Left Dallas with 7 planes in trailer. Got here with 8 in trailer. Had a good trip over except in CA where the speed limit is 55 for vehicles pulling trailers including interstates.

Well it was great to see everyone yesterday. (Even if I was working my ***** off) . I do miss everyone. I have not been out much( or at all) in the last couple years. Anyone who has a gang of kids will know, you got to be there to help momma out. But I do see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It was great to hear the sounds and smell the fuel in the air. To be able to see everyone and give em a big hug really means a lot to me. I hope to be getting back out there real soon and tearing it up.

Dont let anybody tell you different !!!! There is NO group of guys like the jet guys. David S, Dougie, Mark, Hale, Ali, Jeff T., Lowell, B1Bob, Dave and of course Joe C ....... all really good to see you again.

Have fun, and hope to see you all real soon.

The first 46' is freshly paved. Real nice compared to the broken asphalt from before. You actually roll a plane on it

I did hear that the FAA will have the entire asphalt area redone by next year. Hope that is true!
