    I'm planning on going.

    Currently planning on having breakfast at LZU with EAA 690, then heading up to DKX for lunch.

    My club plane just went down for maintenance. Something about over stress signs at the wing root--whatever that means, so I'm in with the TCraft only if it's a nice VFR day. Not sure what it takes to fix over stressed wing roots in a F33A, but I'm betting it's not a quick fix.

    With the weather for wings looking like absolute crap this weekend, the chances of making this have scared to go up.

    Probably not me. If the weather clears, I'll be headed out to Dallas to pick-up my son who's hanging with his grandparents for a week. If the weather doesn't clear, I'll be driving half way to Dallas to do a meet in the middle exchange...

    Based on the forecast, have you picked a rain date? Maybe some time in October or November? :)

    Fingers crossed on the weather. Deborah just said if you're up front, she can lay down and take a nap in the back . . . .

    I'll text you later in the week.

    Sounds good, I’m not 100% that I can go, but I would sure like to if the weather holds. Text me whenever.

    I called the guy back about the boat shuttle, even though he told me on 2 different occasions that he would call me back. he said he doesn't think it can be done. I call boolsheet. he did recommend another boat to call, so I sent them some info this morning. I'll let u know when I hear back from them. if not, it'll just be a short uber ride. will keep u posted. I just looked up what an uber ride would cost and it's about $10 but may be a couple bucks more on the weekends, I dunno.

    I 'think' we should try to be at the restaurant by noon. I'm going to plan to be at KDKX around 11ish. of course it mostly depends on the wx. I'll give the restaurant a heads up around Thursday or so with an approximate head count. or maybe @Ryanb can give em a call, either way.

    That sounds good. Either way, if the pontoon ride is too much trouble, it’s no biggie. I don’t mind calling ahead a day or so prior and letting Calhoun’s know.

    ok the other boat dude called me back. the deal is there isn't a boat DOCK at the airport but a boat launch ramp, which if you had a pontoon boat you could pull part way up it and load people but this dude's boat isn't suitable for that type of loading so he's out. looks like uber it is, that's lame, I know, but I tried. sorry. only other option would be if @Somedudeintn knew some peeps with boats that would want to shuttle us back and forth...…..

    we’ll build one only if you come to ride on it. No guarantees that it will float either.

    As of now I'm out as well. Helping a friend move an RV-10 that day to another state. However if that plan changes I'll come.

    Unfortunately I don’t know many people with boats. I just checked the weather forecast and it isn’t looking too good, but that’s still a ways out. I could take an additional 5 people in my truck, I might be able to enlist a friend to help with transportation too. It’s about 10 minutes from DKX to Calhoun’s and I could potentially make more than one trip.
