Three Upgraded Zodiacs go Flying

Saturday three upgraded Zodiacs took to the skies. Alan flew his plane home to Shelton WA (645 miles). I followed along as far as Grants Pass OR and then returned home (638 miles). As I flew past Cloverdale, Doug came out to meet me.

Hello Ron,

Sorry Alan and I did not let you know we were flying by. My tag-a-long with Alan was a last minute thing with no defined plan. I turned back when I ran out of time. Let us know when your ready to do the upgrade. Alan, Doug and I will show up for a weekend to help if we can get our schedules to line up.

You guys should have let me know you were flying up this way I would have met you in transit or at least in Grants Pass! It's only a hop and a jump from our base field. We would have had three XL's flying together in Oregon!

You beat me. I think I flew about 550 miles or so. Ain't it great?
