    We are finishing up an engine on Bender's Pacer and he is planning on coming out there Sunday or Monday. He has been trying to get me to come I will only tick off 3 customers if I do.

    Don't worry about customers...you can't control how they feel. Can you ever make them happy?

    Well we got Bender flying after installing an overhauled crankcase. Delivered the FX2 and the owner picked up his experimental Super Cub so now I need to call the owner in the Chicago area who is suppose to fly down next week and see what we can do there. Didn't help that all my pictures from previous Idaho trips popped up today.

    If the winds are strong out of the west, from west Ft Worth I stay as low as possible and stop in Amarillo, Farmington, Salt Lake, Jerome or Gooding. If the winds aren’t bad up high, I fly through the North Pass right by Crested Butte, over Blue Mesa reservoir, Salt Lake, Jerome or Gooding.

    My grandson and I had a great time at Johnson Creek. He got to meet one of his (and mine) YouTube good guys, Cory Robin. IMG_20200626_142115.jpg

    Ran into two young guys in a blue and white J3 at KERI (Erie, PA) yesterday. They are enroute to Johnson Creek from Burlington, VT. Pretty impressive adventure.
