Lots of planes and a runway inspection!
Is that @SkyHog ??
Anyone have one of those spreadsheets handy as a template with tail number, arrival date, bringing food for Saturday night, etc? Me, N405FA, Friday, homebrew beer (doppelbok, but also taking a request).
I might try to be there. I have to be back in Reno by the 11th so we’ll see. I am in Texas now heading to New England.
It looks like there is going to be a gathering with out of town family that weekend, so I'm probably out.
I can't see the tail number, but something looks off on the paint scheme....i dont think that one is me. But I was there that year.
Jesse also used to fly a blue and white Cherokee...
Blue and white Cherokees are the bestest
Cool. If I make use of anyone's floor space, closet space, couch space, I will pay my pro-rata share of whatever is needed.
I also used to have a blue and white cherokee. Or at least you see it was blue and white during the day.
I remember him arriving one year with the Fly Baby.
Pretty sure that pic was pre-Fly Baby. Pretty sure the pic is from 2008. I flew in the dearly departed N271G in the pic. I can see @bbchien's Seneca farther down the row. I think this was also the year that the other side of the runway was packed solid quite a ways down as well, best turnout we ever had at Gaston's. The maroon and white Cherokee on the close side of N271G I think might be Kevin's - I can't remember his handle here, but I think Dani rode up with him, and there was an attempt to turn it into a seaplane...
It was definitely not 2009 - I looked back through my pics, and that was the year of the bridesmaids, so I had N8483F down there that year, not N271G. I also had 83F in 2007. There weren't nearly that many planes there in 2006, even fewer in 2005. In 2010, I took a Citabria. So yeah, that has to be 2008.
The bridesmaids. Heh.
The year of the Fly Baby was the year that Spike and I flew in with Dave S. and his King Air. And Kimberly was along to help aerate the runway in her spike heels and provide a particular duck the best view of the weekend when she took a ride in @Greg Bockelman's Cessna 195.
OK, that's a year I wasn't there. 2013.
Well, this should work. Grabbed the 2017 sheet and added in some rows. Whozin?
Man...I know I'm not flying but I'll talk to the wife and see if she has interest. Cant be that long of a drive...
Certainly should have some good scenery along the way.
I'll definitely try to make it down for at least a "day visit" on saturday. May come prepared to spend the nigh...in case someone has space for me to crash.
