Hi Van,

Thanks for your response. I was just in your neighborhood a few weeks ago. I rented a Citabria from Sunshine Flyers at the Auburn airport. Had a blast. I will give you a call in a week or so. I'll fly in to Grass Valley. Nevada County is a nice airport.

Hi Van,

I'm looking for "neighbors" in Northern California to measure interest in creating an " Adventure" Flying group. Looks like you're getting close to flying. Thought you might be interested. I'm located in Redding.
