Nick, thanks for inventing the ConUS Challenge. What a good idea! Thank You! Chip, thanks for the super web site. There are things on the web site that I have never seen on any web site. You always gave timely responses throughout the seventeen months. Thank You! Chip and Nick, I’m sure there were many hurdles behind the scenes that we never knew about. Fellow (Pilot) Challengers, thanks for the “competition.” It was a lot of fun. Thank You! From your descriptions and the airports you went to, I got to know you better. There were many good experiences. I was hoping we would make it to the half way point (2314 claims), and we almost did. I got to land at some airfields that I most likely would never have landed at. I have looked at each and every one of the photos and read each and every one of the descriptions you folks have sent in. I never “clicked here” to mark these claims as reviewed. The reason I never did that was to be able to go back and look at some of your pictures and descriptions again. You folks landed at some challenging airports! It was fun to imagine sitting in the right seat during the landing. I want one of those cups with “I landed at Clearview Airpark” (2W2) written on the side, like Bill Cloughley got. I also want to land at ORD, like Leslie Prellwitz did. There are so many landings that I would have loved to have made with you folks! Wonder how many “claims” Barb Miller would have made, if she had not been hemmed in by the Great Lakes. Wonder how many “claims” Peter Yee would have made, if he had not been limited by the Pacific Ocean. Wonder how many “claims” Karl Kisser would have made, if he had not returned to Alaska. The “challenge” provided an interest in flying. It gave an opportunity for learning, training, and having fun in airplanes. As you can see, I had loads of fun doing this!
