    So, I'm already looking forward to seeing @Dizaster and @EdFred at 6Y9 this year! Need to figure out where to stay, but that will work itself out, I know. Who else will be there?

    Our plan is to be there this year Grant. Only thing that could get in the way is that my daughter in law is planning a big surprise for my sons return from active duty in Djibouti (sp) East Africa. It is planned for the weekend before Labor day, but you know how those plans can change.

    We’re out. First year since it reopened that we won’t make it up there. :(
    With COVID and some personal stuff we have going on, though, it’s just not in the cards.

    Martina and I will also be out, as this was the only available week to get checked out in a Zenith. Sorry. :(

    Was hoping to hitch a ride with Spike but my wife has a trip to Sedona planned so I have to stay here and hold down the fort.

    It looks like I'll be starting a new job next Monday and, even though I negotiated 4 weeks of vacation upon start, I probably wouldn't be a good move to take off a couple of days the very first week.

    But, if my start date is delayed for some reason, I'll be there!

    If I can do it in my Mooney... Last year there was a seriously spanky Vtail Bo that showed up. Really nicely restored.

    I'm out three ways to Sunday. No fly ins for me until I get vaccinated for the 'rona.

    The Bonanza does very well at 6Y9. Last year I took off 300 pounds under gross weight with plenty of room to spare. 260hp H model.

    Washed the airplane (appendix D to part 43, a), did the compression test, pulled the cowl, removed the muffler, some oil lines, and came home to order parts.

    Monkey and I are saying hello to Mt Denali. Thinking of y'all, though... and making appropriate fashion choices.
