    When I was that age, my hair touched my shoulders!

    I kept asking the other early arrivals if that was you, but they said "no. That's not Durham." So apparently you don't look like your avatar, either! ;)

    Well, that's obviously why you can't meet some of us! I only have weekends free.

    I'm surprised more folks don't use their actual picture for their avatar like I do.

    Grum.man will have to borrow his dad's Luscombe if he hopes to return to BQ1. That Yankee was a sweet little airplane.

    I go to Wakefield for fuel. They usually have the best prices in the area.:yes: Cheddars has gotten better. It had really gone downhill for a while. Don't know what was going on but they seem to have corrected the problem... PHF is a nice airport, not to sure about the snakes running the place, but it's sleepy enough that the military / gov't use it for approaches. You can see AF1 there from time to time. So when they take over I head to Franklin to play... Most of the time I'm the only plane in the pattern when I'm there. Where are you based?

    I suppose we could drop in on @FastEddieB. They're bound to have color in TN. But probably not good food.

    You're not Southeast. You're DEEP SOUTH. Even if you do have boobs.

    I am out of RDU... I didnt like wakefiled as an overnight location. They dont have tie downs. never pumped fuel from there. Franklin seems like a better option. Both airporst are equidistant from Zuni. Just ones off 460 the other off 258.

    Yeah, it's pretty sleepy at Wakefield but I do like Franklin it's just to bad they closed the other runway.

    Side note: my parents bought one of these from a mall store when I was in my teens. Apparently it's from some kind of Pepsi promotion.

    The first week was rough. I'd walk out of my room and grab a bowl of cereal, turn around and see a 7 foot tall jar jar binks in my living room and throw my cereal bowl into the ceiling! His dead, soulless eyes. Watching. Peering. Staring.
