    What with a Baron's load hauling capability and your obvious impeccable taste, I rather hoped you were the Bar Force One pilot.:goofy:

    You will be missed.

    I really like eating outside and was really hoping for a cookout, but if shopping is far away and it starts looking like a whole lot of time is involved, I'd just as soon hang out and not worry what to eat.

    If the store is close by and we keep the menu simple, it would still be fun. Did you guys say there was fish in the river?

    Well, here is a picture of a grill at Gaston's. I believe every cottage has one. And yes, that's me 15 years ago. I flew into Gaston's back then, too. :)

    Thanks for the kind comments. Either way, I'm looking forward to hearing about it and seeing some great pics!! Maybe even some inverted ones!!

    Best,

    OK. Cabin 72 has a deck but that deck does NOT overlook the runway, it faces the river;
    The desk says they will run us into bull shoals for supplies, so we can cookout impromptu...e.g, need no car :)

    YRIC -- I am neither a tax nor a dike. It's LEE-vee, like the rye bread. But "Ron" will do just fine, and "Hey-have-a-beer-on-me" works even better.

    It's 231 road miles from Gaston's to Dewitt. Can someone with a car drag one of this guy's http://www.jrenterprises.com/ rigs over for us? That one on the lower right is roadable and should be just about the right size.

    Diana,

    Am I responsible for the weather at Gaston's or for the weather everywhere?

    Diana,

    Don't they have some grills scattered around? Like the kind at state parks, etc. - or am I think of somewhere else? Sounds like a scouting trip to Gaston's next week is in order.

    Laphroaig is my current firewater of choice, but not everyone likes the taste.

    Yes, did you see my photo above on post #86. One of the grills next to the tomboy. :)

    Let's do it! I need to go talk to Danny Gaston anyway. And find an aerobatic practice area. :)

    Leh-Frog, Leh-Frog, kinda like that little guy Tattoo saying le plane le plane. At least that would be what Ed would be chanting as he points at Bar Force One making its approach. :rolleyes:

    Not.

    Actually la-froyg

    OHHHH!!!! I miss the yummy green chile you could get on burgers, hot dogs, and about anything else in Albuquerque. I think I'll grill some burgers up this evening with some green chile, but the canned crap just isn't the same.

    Chip,

    Maybe the weather will be better if you're responsible for it this year instead of Diana.... ;)

    Pictures from the fly-in last year.

    1. At the Rogers FBO, I tried staring really hard at the screen and willing the storms to be gone, but had limited success. That's one reason why I resigned as the weather manager. :) Besides it's fun to blame Chip for stuff that goes wrong. ;)

    2. In the meantime Chip was posting our progress, or lack of, on the AOPA WebBoard.

    Agreed - it was the hardest part of living in New Hampshire for me - no green chile (even though some restaurants had the audacity to sell jalapenos and bell peppers as "Green Chile")

    If you hang around with people like that, I hope you're sleeping at the other end of the property.

    Not everything is pronounced like it is spelled (Arkansas). I grew up in the SW corner of Mo. pronouncing it with a "uh" on the end. Tourists pronounced it with "ee". When is the Gastons fly-in?
