    That would involve some pilots actually fishing at Gastons. I don't see that happening.

    I like the idea of fishing but not the part where you have to touch a fish and get the hook out and all that stuff.
    I would be content to sit on a boat with a fishing pole that has no hook on it. I like the resting feature of fishing.

    My favorite part about fishing is the beer.

    You’re right. Probably that’s why he waited until it was only nine months away.

    I hit like like five times, but all it did was toggle between like and unlike. You like?

    Tell you what, you run the motor and relax, Spike can drink, and I'll fish. It'll be perfect!

    I hope you mean in 'time', not 'distance'.

    I hope to see you there.

    I have always been irritated that I have to tell everyone I am "Bryan with a y"
    It felt good knowing there was a "Brian with a bracket" out there.

    We might do a low pass in the loud machine.

    I think I finally have something that can outdo the Viking for the village alarm clock.

    Be interesting to put a decibel meter on the ground and compare the level of the MU-2 vs the T-6.

    My favorite part of fishing is trying to shoot the fish with the speargun. But to each his own.

    Are none of us concerned about the danger and strife?

    Hey I flew a Pitts halfway across the country to go there one year. I don't want to hear "too far"

    Gaston's too grassy? That strip may as well be paved.

    Considering the two crazies that took fast moving twin cessna's in there last year, I'd think a half-as$ cardinal driver should be able to do it without much concern. :)

    I’m so sick of missing Gastons that I’m going to do drastic things this year to try to get my butt there.
