    Thanks all! I made it as far as Orange City, Iowa today. Rain next few days. Sure would like to find a hangar for it.

    TJ,

    Hangar space in Va is always at a premium! I know that Culpeper had a pretty good waiting line. WhiteHawke may be able to give you some space for a bit. I can ask Kevin if you would like. Also, RMN has a pretty good turnover for hangar space. I know that Shannon Field in Fredericksburg is a bit of a drive but they are expanding and usually have a hangar or two. The owner has worked really hard to make EZF pretty accommodating. You may want to speak with them.

    Thanks Greg. I have one at Culpeper. I just hate leaving her outside at Orange City in three days of rain.

    I've been thinking about those sort of spats for my Pacer for years, mainly how to attach them, so lots of photos would be really helpful

    TJ,

    Great looking pics. I got ahead of myself with all of the hangar advice. I hate to leave my girl outside as well. You really do have a good looking bird. The VA shortwing group is growing pretty quick. I'm sorry that I'm no longer in the local area. You guys will have some great opportunities to get together. If I had stayed in the local area, I was looking at moving out towards Culpeper. I really enjoy that airport.

    Greg
